Southampton's AI experts are focusing on energy-efficient computation for intelligence.

Researchers from the University of Southampton are re-thinking machine learning architectures and algorithms for future intelligent devices as part of a new Centre for Spatial Computational Learning.

The international collaborative research centre has secured over £1.2m of funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to tackle challenges associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous computing’s increasing need to embed intelligence into devices.

The new Centre is led by Imperial College and involves collaborators in Southampton, Toronto and California, alongside industrial partners at Arm, Imagination Technologies, Xilinx, Corerain, and Maxeler Technologies.

Experts from Southampton’s School of Electronics and Computer Science, including Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi and Dr Geoff Merrett, will focus on energy-efficient computation for intelligence.
