Our passion and mission is to advance artificial intelligence by exploring the complex interplay between neuroscience, machine learning, and emerging hardware.
The Brain Lab works on both fundamental and applied research related to the design of agile, energy-efficient, and trustworthy hardware for AI applications. Our approach is to use the latest findings in neuroscience to inform the development of new machine learning algorithms (e.g. state-of-the-art spiking neural networks) that can efficiently map to new hardware devices (e.g. memristors). We believe that this approach will enable AI to be deployed on severely energy-constrained devices (sensors, satellites, etc.) and will have significant impacts in the areas of healthcare, transportation, entertainment, and defense.
