By IQT News posted 27 Jun 2019

(LaserFocusWorld) SUNY Polytechnic Institute announced that associate VP for research and adjunct professor of nanoscience Satyavolu Papa Rao and professor of Nanobioscience Nathaniel Cady have been awarded $900,000 in funding from the Air Force Research Laboratory to conduct research on brain-inspired (neuromorphic) computing systems comprised of quantum devices operating at cryogenic (below -450 degrees F) temperatures.
Research and development of such neuromorphic computing systems that mimic the functioning elements of a human brain will be conducted in SUNY Poly’s 300 mm wafer fabrication facility using the same tool platforms on which advanced computer chips are built.
