Big congratulations to Dr. Yang, and to all the inductees of the new class of Inventors Fellows!
“J. Joshua Yang
A professor of electrical and computer engineering, Yang’s research interest is in post-CMOS hardware for in-memory computing, near-sensor computing, neuromorphic computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence. He is the founding chair of the IEEE Neuromorphic Computing Technical Committee, a recipient of the Powell Faculty Research Award, University of Massachusetts distinguished faculty lecturer and the recipient of a UMass Chancellor Medal, the highest honor at that university. Yang was also previously elected an IEEE Fellow for contributions in resistive switching materials and devices for memory and neuromorphic computing.
Yang holds 118 granted and about 60 pending U.S. patents, among which, two patents on MRAM were licensed by a world leading semiconductor company. He is also a co-founder and the chairman of the scientific advisory board of TetraMem Inc., a startup company focusing on the hardware acceleration of AI/ML.
As one of the directors of the newly established Institute for the Future of Computing at USC, Yang aims to investigate novel and emerging computing paradigms, architectures and physical fabrics that can significantly improve functionality, security and sustainability of today’s computing systems. The institute’s approach is mission and application driven, including applications in information processing, bioinformatics, medicine and artificial intelligence. Emphasis is also placed on investigating the impacts of these technologies on the environment, people and society as a whole.”
