Dr. Jacques-Olivier Klein is professor at University of Paris-Sud, Orsay, France in the Fundamental Electronics Institute (IEF) where he leads the Nanocomputing research group. In addition he is lecturer at the Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) of Cachan.
Combining non-volatile emerging devices and bio-inspired approach like neural networks and electronic retinas open the way to ultra-low power data processing capabilities for applications such as image processing and classification. Such advantage relies first on specific data coding (using time and analog values) which is advantageous to process near-sensor signal. In addition, event representation limits the dynamic consumption while computing with non-volatile devices suppresses the static power.
