A cross-disciplinary team of researchers from the Universities of York and Sheffield are working together on an exciting new EPSRC-funded project, MARCH (Magnetic Architectures for Reservoir Computing Hardware), to design and use magnetic materials as embodied reservoir computers, developing novel multi-reservoir architectures, and applying them to real world tasks including robot control.
Such devices have been demonstrated in the individual small scale. Our aim is to develop scaled-up embodied Reservoir Computing (RC), including a new design methodology and hardware platform for multi-reservoir devices, that can be exploited to design low power, robust, flexible, and efficient smart sensing and other ‘edge-computing’ devices in a diverse range of materials.
To achieve this, we will develop new multi-RC design tools, and will design, test and manufacture combinations of nanomagnetic RCs.
We are recruiting a team of outstanding postdoctoral researchers in Unconventional Computing, Analogue Electronic Engineering, and Magnetic Materials Science, to work with us on the leading edge research needed to achieve the MARCH project’s ambitious objectives.
