PlasmoniAC: harnessing plasmons for neuromorphic computing
AMO is partner of PlasmoniAC, an EU-funded project that aims at realizing a radically new circuit-technology for neuromorphic computing based on plasmons.
PlasmoniAC responds to the pressing industrial needs for high-speed neuromorphic chips that are at the same time low-cost,energy-efficient and compact. Bringing together the expertise 10 partners from 7 countries, the project offers a unique chance for strengthening the competitiveness of European photonics industry and for putting European companies in world-leading position in the global neuromorphic and Deep Learning market.
The kick-off meeting took place on the January 21st-22nd, 2020 in Thessaloniki, Greece, in a highly inspiring atmosphere. With all members highly motivated, PlasmoniAC is now looking forward to the first results. The official press-release of the event can be downloaded here.
