Weebit Nano (ASX: WBT), the semiconductor company seeking to develop and commercialise the next generation of memory technology, is launching a joint Neuromorphic ReRAM project with Politecnico di Milano (Polimi).
Weebit will collaborate with a team at the Politecnico di Milano in Italy, one of the leading European universities for Industrial and Information Engineering, Technology and Industrial Design, to test, characterise and implement its developed algorithms using Weebit’s ReRAM chips to demonstrate the capability of ReRAM-based hardware in neuromorphic and artificial intelligence applications.
The research will be led by Professor Daniele Ielmini, from the Electronics, Information and Bio-Engineering department. Professor Ielmini is a Fellow of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), has held visiting positions at Intel and Stanford University, and received the Intel 2013 Outstanding Researcher Award.
Professor Ielmini, who has conducted research on emerging non-volatile memories for several years, said: “Artificial intelligence currently uses software and traditional hardware technology limited in capability and scalability due to the industry reaching the limits of Moore’s Law. More efficient devices that allow faster and scalable performance are needed. We believe ReRAM devices are the best candidates for implementing brain inspired intelligence hardware due to their resemblance to biological synapses. As a global research leader in this space, we are keen to collaborate with Weebit Nano to partner their SiOx chips with our developed algorithms.”
Coby Hanoch, CEO of Weebit Nano, said: “Senior Weebit managers have maintained close relations with Professor Ielmini over the years and have planned to collaborate on neuromorphic application development once Weebit chips reached a key stage in development. I am very happy we can now launch this project as part of our collaboration with world-leading research institutes using Weebit’s ReRAM technology. This research places the company in the middle of the latest work on platforms for artificial intelligence and other neuromorphic computing applications which will become standard over the next decade.”
Increasing mandates around the security of personal data have made encryption for every business. Australian businesses are leading the world in the use of encryption to protect backups, payment-related data, and laptops – and yet they still have a long way to go before encryption is both ubiquitous and manageable.
If your last access-control update was even a few years ago, you’re probably more exposed to fraud and exploitation than you’d like to be.
It’s not hard to understand why bot management is critical to maintaining business availability and customer satisfaction – but do you know how to properly deal with bots?
Increasing use of encryption has created new challenges for enterprise security managers. Ever more-sophisticated encryption such as Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) protects data and may even boost your Google ranking – but it also provides a haven for malicious code that may use encryption to bypass enterprise security controls.
