C-BRIC Researchers at Purdue Win IEEE Brain Community Best Paper Award

Congratulations to C-BRIC researchers Akhilesh Jaiswal, Amogh Agrawal, Priya Panda, and Kaushik Roy from Purdue University.
Jaiswal, Agrawal, Panda, and Roy won the IEEE Brain Technical Community Best Paper Award. They received this honor for their work on "Neural Computing With Magnetoelectric Domain-Wall-Based Neurosynaptic Devices," published in the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics in 2021. Their work focuses on domain-wall (DW) neurons and synapses. They proposed "a leaky-integrate-fire (LIF) neuron and a programmable non-volatile synapse using the domain-wall (DW) motion induced by the magnetoelectric effect." The work is unique in that the "proposed device can seamlessly incorporate the "controlled leaky" behavior both in neurons and synapses, leading to the improved bioplausible behavior."
Drs. Akhilesh Jaiswal, Amogh Agrawal, and Priya Panda all received their PhD degrees under the direction of Professor Kaushik Roy. Jaiswal is currently with the University of Southern California, Agrawal is working at Apple, and Panda is with Yale University. Roy is the Edward G. Tiedemann Jr. Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.
