Machine-learning system based on light could yield more powerful, efficient large language models
MIT system demonstrates greater than 100-fold improvement in energy efficiency and a 25-fold improvement in compute density compared with current systems.
The founders of MIT spinout Active Surfaces describe their thin-film solar technology and their experience winning this year’s $100K.
A new low-temperature growth and fabrication technology allows the integration of 2D materials directly onto a silicon circuit, which could lead to denser and more powerful chips.
U.S. Department of Energy selects MIT to establish collaborative research center for optimizing the development of tandem solar modules.
School of Engineering welcomes new faculty
Eleven new faculty members join six of the school’s academic departments and institutes.
Efficient technique improves machine-learning models’ reliability
The method enables a model to determine its confidence in a prediction, while using no additional data and far fewer computing resources than other methods.
Computers that power self-driving cars could be a huge driver of global carbon emissions
Study shows that if autonomous vehicles are widely adopted, hardware efficiency will need to advance rapidly to keep computing-related emissions in check.
Researchers have demonstrated directional photon emission, the first step toward extensible quantum interconnects.
