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.’

Shrinking massive neural networks used to model language

Texas ECE PhD student Tianlong Chen is the lead author of a study in artificial intelligence that posits that hidden within massive neural networks, leaner subnetworks exist that can complete the same task more efficiently. The study is co-authored by Texas ECE assistant professor Zhangyang "Atlas" Wang with others.
