Funding To Georgia Institute of Technology Of $65 Million

Medical & Healthcare, searches and rescue, commerce and warfare, as well as leisure, will all be transformed by humanoid machines and AI characters that can seamlessly and intimately engage with people. The development of the technology is already underway, and Georgia Tech researchers are helping to steer a large national initiative.

In order to strengthen the nation’s information and technology architecture, the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) unveiled a new initiative last year. A number of Georgia Tech faculty members leaped at the opportunity to take part, despite the fact that there was a global chip shortfall, supply chain constraints, and other obstacles.

The Joint University Microelectronics Program 2.0, or JUMP 2.0, is administered by the SRC and has granted Georgia Tech two new research centres for a total expenditure of around $65.7 million.

JUMP 2.0 will aid the work of multiple diversified researchers from various universities who are confronting the technology challenges of a digital age. The objective is to increase the country’s productivity, economy, and capacity for the both military and civilian sectors.

One of the new centres will be led by Professor Arijit Raychowdhury, the Steve W. Chaddick Chair of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. “Georgia Tech received two of the seven centres, which is not only amazing but also speaks highly about the breadth and depth of our research enterprise,” said Raychowdhury.
