Laboratory/research office Advanced Computer Engineering Laboratory
The academic objective of our work on advanced information and communication systems is to investigate novel computer engineering approaches through empirical study of LSI chip fabrication. The data-oriented parallel computing technique and its self-timed pipeline implementation have been developed and applied in various embedded application systems in order to achieve higher performance, lower power consumption, and higher dependability for the coming Internet of Things (IoT) based big-data era. In the future our studies will be extended to research on brain-like computer organization.
Current reseach topics Low-Power Parallel Computers: Data-Driven multiprocessors Consumer Applications of VLSI Computers Interdisciplinary Study of Neuro Science and Computer Science
