Dr. Jan Moritz Joseph Admitted to the “Junges Kolleg”
Dr. Jan Moritz Joseph has been admitted into the Junges Kolleg of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts, one of the most valuable academic honors in NRW.
Dr. Jan Moritz Joseph, researcher at ICE, has been inducted into the Junges Kolleg of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. Acceptance to the Academy is one of the most valuable academic honors in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). Members participate in the activities of the Academy and receive an annual stipend of 10,000 Euros. Since 2006, the academy has been promoting outstanding early-career researchers in NRW with the Junges Kolleg and now has around 170 active, affiliated, and former scholarship recipients. A doctoral degree as well as exceptional academic and research achievements at one of the NRW universities or research institutions are among the prerequisites for election into the College. At the time of admission, members may not be older than 36 years.
Dr. Jan Moritz Joseph will be member of the Junges Kolleg starting from January 2024 for four years. He is researching energy-efficient methods for the design and use of AI in embedded systems. Joseph is particularly interested in neuromorphic hardware. Traditionally, AI applications are run on systems in which processing and storage are separated, which limits performance. Neuromorphic systems combine both units in a new component and are therefore more energy-efficient. As part of his scholarship, he will extend ICE commitment to sustainable AI systems using neuromorphic computing and expand the network of the institute beyond disciplinary boundaries.
