Atlas Wang has been named one of "AI's 10 to Watch" by IEEE

The magazine’s popular biennial award, established by the magazine in 2006 in honor of AI’s 50-year anniversary, celebrates young professionals for their early career accomplishments in a field that is also still rather new.


Researchers at UT Austin create computer chips that think like brains

Imagine a computer with a device in it that allows it to think like you think like a human. That reality is one step closer to mainstream adoptions thanks to researchers at the University of Texas at Austin. 

So far, the standard computer doesn’t have any thoughts, and algorithms do everything. Researchers including Dmitry Kireev and Jean Anne

Graphene and Beyond: The Wonder Materials That Could Replace Silicon in Future Tech

Silicon is pretty great.

Testifying to its greatness is more than 70 years’ worth of steady progress in electronic computing, from the first primitive desktop calculators to that pocket-size supercomputer we call a smartphone.

Formulate silicon just right, shape it into a transistor, and it can be both a conductor and an insulator, depending on


Robots Have Become An Essential Part Of The War Against Covid-19

More recently, robots are being used for essential functions in the patient-care setting. Take for example Moxi, built by Texas-based Diligent Robotics.

EB Train

Reducing energy use in neural networks

Dr. Atlas Wang is part of a research team that has developed a novel energy-efficient method for training DNNs, based on so-called ‘Early-Bird’ (EB) tickets, called an ‘EB Train.’
