Dr. Chang Gao Receives the €187K MSCA-PF Grant

February 13, 2023

I am happy to announce that our Marie Curie Skłodowska Fellowship project, “AIRHAR: An Energy-Efficient AI Powered Portable Radar System for Human Activity Recognition," in collaboration with Prof. Francesco Fioranelli, Prof. Alexander Yarovoy and Prof. Leo de Vreede, has been granted.

We are thrilled to explore the possibilities of leveraging AI model compression and edge AI hardware in radar sensing. We are eager to engage in fruitful conversations with industry partners on potential collaboration opportunities in this area.

Dr. Chang Gao Awarded the MECA Prize

January 15, 2023

We congratulate Dr. Chang Gao, leader of the EMI Lab, for winning the 2022 Mahowald Early Career Award for his project titled "Accelerating Recurrent Neural Networks with Neuromorphic Principles." The project introduces efficient computing using the neuromorphic principles of spatial and temporal sparsity, leading to an energy-efficient accelerator for edge RNN computing. Gao's accomplishments have the potential to revolutionize applications in healthcare, wearables, and intelligent biomedical implants.

130K Swiss Francs Fund Received by Our Partner
