IET Fellow Professor Themis Prodromakis, University of Southampton, has been recognised for his transformational research and remarkable contributions in AI Hardware.
A jury of leading scientists from across the UK selected Professor Prodromakis as a Finalist in the Physical Sciences & Engineering category.
Electronic engineer and nanotechnologist, Professor Prodromakis has devised new computer hardware that supports the rapidly increasing computational demands of AI applications.
His technology is built upon an electronic component known as a “memristor”, which simultaneously stores multiple datasets in a single component.
He has developed some of the first memristor technologies that are promising for real applications in the information and biomedical industries.
His technology has been successfully commercialised and is currently in use by global businesses and standards organisations.
