Partners Double-Team AI & Quantum Computing

Belgian research center imec and French research institute CEA-Leti have signed a memorandum of understanding that lays the foundation of a strategic partnership in the domains of Artificial Intelligence and quantum computing, two key strategic value chains for European industry. The collaboration will focus on developing, testing and experimenting neuromorphic and quantum computing and should result in the delivery of a digital hardware computing toolbox that can be used by European industry partners to innovate in a wide variety of applications.  

 

According to the partners, edge Artificial Intelligence (eAI) commonly refers to computer systems that display intelligent behavior locally on the hardware devices (e.g. chips). They analyze their environment and take the required actions to achieve specific goals. Edge AI is poised to become a key driver of economic development. And, even more importantly perhaps, it holds the promise of solving many societal challenges – from treating diseases that cannot yet be cured today, to minimizing the environmental impact of farming.

TE Connectivity Horticultural Lighting Solutions Available Now from Digi-Key

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.

 

Decentralization from the cloud to the edge is a key challenge of AI technologies applied to large heterogeneous systems. This requires innovation in the components industry with powerful, energy-guzzling processors.

 

Imec and CEA-Leti are inviting partners from industry as well as academia to join them and benefit from access to the research centers’ state-of-the-art technology with proven reproducibility. For more details, visit imec and Leti.
