Intelligent Device-2-Applications (iDEA) Research Lab

Picture1.png

iDEA group research interests span the areas of design and implementation of cross-layer (device/ circuit/ architecture) co-design for implementing complex machine learning tasks and secure computation, including hardware security, and the security of artificial intelligence. Specifically, we are working on a wide range of practical problems in the area of machine learning, computer architecture, and embedded systems to bridge the gap between neuromorphic and conventional Von Neumann computing.
We are always looking for highly motivated and self-driven Master's & Ph.D. students! (read more)
