On 16th December 2021, Lecturer Atsutake Kosuge, Systems Design Lab., received "MIT Technology Review Japan Innovators Under 35".


MIT Technology Review Japan Innovators Under 35
Lecturer Atsutake Kosuge has been selected as one of the innovators under the age of 35 who will create the future in the "Innovators Under 35 Japan 2021" awards organized by MIT Technology Review (Japan edition).
The "Innovators Under 35 Japan 2021" is an international award sponsored by the MIT Technology Review, the media division of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States. In the past, Google co-founder Sergey Brin and Facebook co-founder, chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg have also won the award.

Over 350 domestic and international candidates were applied for the award, and 15 were finally selected as the winners.

About awarded research
Research topic: Ultra-low power AI chip for factory and construction automations
Tasks such as image recognition using machine learning require a large amount of computing power. With the impasse of "Moore's Law", cutting-edge semiconductor chips have become power consuming and costly. This has been a barrier to the widespread adoption of automation technologies that require large numbers of semiconductor chips. Lecturer Kosuge has developed a wired logic AI chip, that can execute AI algorithms two orders of magnitude faster and lower power than conventional CPUs and GPUs.
