The Science Times: NTT PHI Lab Partners with IRCN to Develop Novel AI-Based Neuro-Computing Technology

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation NTT’s research division has conducted a collaborative project with the University of Tokyo’s International Research Center for Neurointelligence or IRCN to examine and produce innovations based on coherent Ising machine technology.

The two organizations will push to develop coherent Ising machine or CIM processors that use algorithms that could provide solutions to the most difficult sets of problems. CIM will serve as an information processor, similar to the function of most AI devices, and will use photonic oscillator networks. University of Tokyo’s professor and IRCN Deputy Director Kazuyuki Aihara is the leader of the collaborative research with regard to artificial intelligence studies and algorithm-based models…
