Challenges in Green Computing Technologies and New AI regulations
The lecture proposes an interesting and very hot topic related to Green Computing. We will introduce our new research in de field of nanotechnologies brain-inspired proposed for the next generation of computing technologies. We are focused to develop nano-architecture very reliable and with low power consumption. Also, we will discuss on sustainability and green computing and will introduce the new AI regulations in EU.
