Keynote Speakers

Mike Davies

Neuromorphic Computing Laboratory, Intel Corporation, USA

Bio: Mike Davies (Member, IEEE) received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, CA, USA, in 1998 and 2000, respectively.,He was a Founding Employee with Fulcrum Microsystems, Calabasas, CA, USA, and the Director of its Silicon Engineering Group until Intel’s acquisition of Fulcrum in 2011. He led the development of four generations of low-latency, highly integrated Ethernet switches using Fulcrum’s proprietary asynchronous design methodology. Since 2014, he has been researching neuromorphic circuits, architectures, and algorithms at Intel Labs, Intel Corporation, Santa Clara, CA, USA. He is currently a Senior Principal Engineer and the Director of the Neuromorphic Computing Laboratory, Intel Corporation.(Based on document published on 17 October 2022).

Yvain Thonnart

CEA Leti, France

Bio: Yvain Thonnart received the MS degree from Ecole Polytechnique and an engineering diploma from Telecom Paris, France in 2005. He then joined the Technological Research Division of CEA, the French French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, within the CEA-Leti institute until 2019, then within the CEA-List institute. He has led the development of several large research projects for on-chip communications, focusing on the maturation of novel concepts towards industrial adoption, such as CEA’s ANOC asynchronous network on chip, communication between multiple voltage and frequency domains, 3D-stacked circuits, and optical on-chip interconnects, leading to more than 70 publications and 10 patents. He is now senior expert on communication and synchronization in systems on chip, and scientific advisor for the mixed-signal design lab. His main research interests include asynchronous logic, networks on chip, physical implementation, emerging technologies integration such as photonics, cryoelectronics and interposers. He is currently serving in the technical program committee of the ISSCC.
