Toward the era of frugal and efficient computing
1.5 hour technical workshop 
to discover CEA-Leti's vision and scientific highlights
in edge AI & quantum computing domains

Thomas Signamarcheix


Computing is seen as the most critical requirement to efficiently respond to social revolutions. This raises expectations for the development of highly efficient and frugal computing solutions. Artificial intelligence and quantum electronics are offering the promise of reliable technologies for long-term sustainability of our digital society.
  • This workshop will present CEA-Leti's vision and scientific highlights, for frugal and efficient computing systems.

  • The first session will address edge AI, covering hardware-level innovations to ensure frugality and efficiency.

  • The second session will address quantum computing, focusing on silicon spin qubit for large-scale computers
