|About University||Khalifa University of Science and Technology
Khalifa University is a world-class,research-intensive institution in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The University’s mission is to seamlessly integrate research and education to produce world leaders and critical thinkers in science, engineering and medicine, and also to be a catalyst towards AbuDhabi’s 2030 vision for a knowledge-based economy. Khalifa University has three campuses in the city of Abu Dhabi – the KU Main Campus, Masdar City Campus and the Sas Al Nakhl Campus, the latter two housing the internationally renowned Masdar and Institute and Petroleum Institute, respectively.
|Brief Description||The researcher is expected to survey lightweight signalprocessing algorithms suitable for memristive systems for resource constrainedcomputational intelligence applications such as the Internet-of-things (IoT)nodes. For example, Graph Neuron (GN) is a simple graph‐based algorithm used inpattern recognition. The algorithm is not an improvement to the highlysophisticated pattern recognition methods already available in the literature.Rather it focuses on reducing the computational requirements for use withinresource restricted networks and providing responses in real‐time Moreover, itis very important that training time for such restricted environments be keptminimal in order not to degrade the performance in real‐time. The use ofheuristic evolutionary algorithms to program the states of the memristor suchas genetic algorithms. Using such techniques, the matrices of the crossbar mayalso be evolved over time to achieve a predetermined objective. For example,the alteration of the resistance states of a crossbar control circuit may beinitiated by a change in an environmental condition, such as by detectingtemperature, motion, sound, a change in weight, or detection of one or morechemicals. This is useful to optimize the circuit to a particular environmentalcondition. Finally, a co-optimization between the lightweight algorithm and thememristor-based architecture shall be implemented|
