ChipAI explores a portfolio of future light-based nanotechnologies using cheap, ultra-small, efficient and fast light sources and detectors capable of being utilized in future brain-inspired systems and networks. These will offer great potential to improve the quality of life of European and international citizens through considerable scientific, economic and societal benefits. The main applications include artificial intelligence and machine learning, and high-bandwidth telecoms and so will contribute to a wide range of industrial sectors with global interest, e.g. information and communications technologies, healthcare, active and healthy ageing, agriculture, public administrations and transport. Notably, the research addressed by ChipAI project is driven by interdisciplinary collaborations between electrical and optical engineers, experimental and theoretical physicists and computer and machine learning scientists, and others. Being part of the interdisciplinary team of ChipAI’s project, the artist will have access to a creative and scientific environment and thinking. Importantly, the artist will have access to all the project’s technologies and data produced. This includes material samples and proof-of-concept prototypes, scientific reports, data sets, and sounds, videos and images produced by a complete set of state-of-the-art equipment.
