Exciting news from ECE professor Kurtis Cantley!

Cantley will conduct machine learning hardware research with a three-year grant of $700,000 from the Department of Energy Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Cantley’s research goal is to improve the reliability of the power grid with intelligent, adaptable and cyber secure electronics that take inspiration from the human brain, otherwise known as neuromorphic systems. Not only will this research improve the computational efficiency of power-grid monitoring systems, but the novelty of this hardware will make it considerably more complicated for cyber attackers to reverse engineer than standard off-the-shelf hardware!
