Nanoarch 2017 Best Paper Award

Our paper on “Approximate Vector Matrix Multiplication Implementations for Neuromorphic Applications using Memristive Crossbars” was presented with the best paper award at the 2017 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (NANOARCH ’17)

W. Woods and C. Teuscher. Approximate Vector Matrix Multiplication Implementations for Neuromorphic Applications using Memristive Crossbars. Proceedings of the 2017 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (NANOARCH ’17), 2017.

 

Girls Inc. Eureka!

Dr. Teuscher taught a 3-day Girls Inc. Eureka! cohort. Activities included Scratch, slime mold, cellular automata, and squishy circuits.

Eureka! is a five year Girls Inc. program that brings 8th – 12th grade girls, including many who will be first generation college applicants, onto local college and university campuses for an intensive STEM summer program.”

tlab PhD students win department awards

Congrats to Mohammad, Walt, and Jens for winning several ECE department awards!

Portland State computer engineer Christof Teuscher inspired by biology

“Inspiration for new technologies often can be found in biological systems. A classic example is how plant burrs sticking to an engineer’s dog led to the creation of Velcro.”

“Following in such traditions is Christof Teuscher, an associate professor in Portland State University’s electrical and computer engineering department.”
