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.
