The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics, Labour and Housing is funding the joint project "Mikroelektronik für KI – Neuromorphe Hardware“ (Microelectronics for AI - Neuromorphic Hardware) with around two million euros from the state strategy on artificial intelligence. "This will create the technological prerequisites for the realisation and transfer of neuromorphic AI chips to medium-sized companies in Baden-Württemberg," said Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, Minister of Economic Affairs, today.

In the joint project " Mikroelektronik für KI – Neuromorphe Hardware ", three industry-oriented research institutes of the Baden-Württemberg Innovation Alliance are jointly researching and developing adaptive, secure and energy-efficient AI chips, which are regarded as an elementary building block for industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. The project is coordinated by the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS) with the participation of the Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI) and the Hahn-Schickhard-Gesellschaft für angewandte Forschung e. V. (Hahn-Schickhard Society for Applied Research). (HSG). An industrial advisory board will accompany the project.
