Lab Introduction:
JQub was established at George Mason University in Fall 2021. The team focuses on the hardware/software co-design for the broadly computing systems. The target application ranges from computer vision, natural language processing to medical-related (e.g., imaging and drug discovery) AI applications. The target hardware platform ranges from classical computing (i.e., FPGAs, ASICs, Computing-in-Memory, Mobile Phones, etc.) to quantum computing. The open projects from JQub can be accessed from GitHub. The team is open for collaboration from both academic and industry. For contacting, please email to jqub.gmu@gmail.com.
