ECE PhD student wins IBM Symposium Best Poster Award
Wachirawit Ponghiran, a graduate student in the Purdue University Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering won a Best Student Poster Award at the 5th IBM IEEE CAS and EDS AI Compute Symposium. The poster was based on Ponghiran’s work on “Machine Learning-Based Power Modeling of Digital Circuits” in the area of AI Systems and Applications.
A total of three students were selected for the award from 32 posters. Accepted work were categorized into three tracks: AI Systems and Applications, AI Architectures and Algorithms, and Emerging Hardware for AI Compute.
Ponghiran received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from KAIST, Korea in 2015 and 2017, respectively. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. at Purdue University under the direction of Kaushik Roy, Edward G. Tiedemann Jr. Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Ponghiran’s research focuses on algorithm design for spiking neuromorphic computing. He has held internship positions at IBM and Intel.
