The EMI Lab - TU Delft
The Efficient circuits & systems for Machine Intelligence (EMI) research lab focuses on designing energy-efficient digital AI hardware for edge computing, emphasizing ultrahigh-speed communication, video/audio processing, robotics, and biomedical applications. We aim to bridge the gap between artificial neural networks (ANNs) and spiking neural networks (SNNs) by applying brain-inspired neuromorphic principles to massively accelerate the computation of state-of-the-art deep neural network (DNN) architectures while maintaining competitive accuracy on real-world tasks (We are hiring!).
