Artificial neuron device could shrink energy use and size of neural network hardware

Neural network training could one day require less computing power and hardware, thanks to a new nanodevice that can run neural network computations using 100 to 1000 times less energy and area than existing CMOS-based hardware. Full Story

Lightening the data center energy load

Electrical engineers and computer scientists at UC San Diego are on the front lines of global efforts to reduce the energy used by data centers. The team has been awarded $7.5 million from ARPA-E and the California Energy Commission to advance nation-wide efforts to double data center energy efficiency in the next decade through deployment of new photonic —light based—network topologies.
