PHRESCO project is looking for partners to continue its research

New computing paradigms are required to feed the next revolution in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Machines that can learn, but also handle vast amount of data, need to be invented. PHRESCO is an EU-H2020 funded project coordinated by The Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL) that was running for four years and will be ending in September 2019.

PHRESCO focused on the development of efficient cognitive computing into a specific silicon-based technology by co-designing a new reservoir computing chip, including innovative electronic and photonic components that will enable major breakthrough in the field. So far a first generation reservoir with 18 nodes and integrated readout was designed, fabricated, characterized and a training method has been developed.

Additionally, large efforts of the consortium was dedicated to the design of the second-generation chip consisting of larger networks (60 nodes), with an on-chip readout and novel training approaches. Although the PHRESCO project has advanced considerably the state of the art of reservoir computing, there are still several technical barriers that need to be removed in order to bring the concept closer to a marketable product.

The PHRESCO consortium is open to discuss a potential cooperation with stakeholders who could be interested to co-develop the concept further to a system level targeting specific applications.  PNO has a strategic collaboration with KUL and is in close contact with the PHRESCO partners.
