NuLogiCS Group

Human intelligence lies on the capability of thinking. With the development of the programmable computer, slow thinking has found its solid foundation on computation. With the recent progress of machine learning, especially deep learning, fast thinking is discovering its root on learning. Logics is the foundation of both computation and learning. NuLogiCS group's goal is to build the new logic foundation for Artificial Intelligence (which needs a tight integration between computation and learning), and for Security (which needs a tight integration between cryptography and formal verification). This lab is headed by Hai Zhou.

VLSI Research Lab

The VLSI Research Lab at NU focuses on the areas of energy efficient computing in digital and mixed signal IC design. We are dedicating our effort to push the existing technology with “non-conventional” approaches. Some of the examples of approaches we take includes: a “cross-layer” design approach where we cross conventional design boundary and leverage broader knowledge of different fields, exploiting new computing method such as mixed-signal / analog computing to achieve ultra-low energy consumption, and leverage emerging meuromorphic technique for biomedical system, ultra-low power system. This lab is headed by Jie Gu.
