Online Seminar | Making Glass Think
23 June 2021, 11:30 am–12:30 pm
Tony Kenyon Professor of Nanoelectronic & Nanophotonic Materials will discuss how a material more commonly thought of as an inert electrical insulator, silicon dioxide, can be the basis for new low power brain-inspired - neuromorphic - computing technologies.
This event is free.

Making Glass Think
All computing technologies rely on the electrical response of the materials on which they are based. In most cases, these are semiconductors, and most usually, silicon. However, our silicon-based systems are facing a crisis in power consumption and we need to look for alternatives.
In this seminar, Tony Kenyon, Vice Dean (research) of the UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences, will discuss how a material more commonly thought of as an inert electrical insulator, silicon dioxide, can be the basis for new low power brain-inspired - neuromorphic - computing technologies.
This session will be chaired by: Izzat Darwazeh

About the ICCS online seminar series
The ICCS seminar series is designed to bring together members of our community who are currently away from our home in Bloomsbury and distributed across the world. The Seminars are being curated to provide academic exploration and inspiration, offering insights into a range of topics surrounding communications and connected systems. Topics will either explore subjects close to the work of our academics or introduce wider concepts from experts in the global academic and industrial community.
If you wish to suggest a future topic or speaker please use the link below, speakers could be from academia, industry, within ICCS/UCL or from further a field.
The seminar will begin with a presentation aimed at a technical audience, but at a level that will be accessible to those from a range of engineering disciplines. Speakers have been asked to end their presentations with a technical challenge or delving deeper into the content to engage those more invested in the topic.
The seminar series is designed to offer a compact exploration of ranging topics and is therefore short in format. The presentation will run for 15 - 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of questions.
