Invited Speakers


Prof. Hiroyuki Yamauchi
Fukuoka Institute of Technology, Japan

Prof. Hiroyuki Yamauchi received the in engineering from Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan, in 1997. His doctoral dissertation was on "Low Power Technologies for Battery-Operated Semiconductor Random Access Memories". In 1985 he joined the Semiconductor Research Center, Panasonic, Osaka, Japan. From 1985 to 1987 he worked on the submicron MOS FET model-parameter extraction for the circuit simulation and the sensitivity improvement for the scaled sense amplifier for ultrahigh-density DRAM's which was presented at the 1989 Symposium on VLSI Circuits. From 1988 to 1994, he was engaged in research and development of 16-Mb CMOS DRAM's including the battery-operated high-speed 16Mbit CMOS DRAM and the ultra low-power, three times longer, self-refresh DRAM which was presented at the 1993 and 1995 ISSCC, respectively. He also presented the charge-recycling bus architecture and low-voltage operated high-speed VLSI's, including 0.5V/100MHz-operated SRAM and Gate-Over-Driving CMOS architecture, which were presented at the Symposium on VLSI Circuits in 1994 and 1996, respectively, as well as the 1997 ISSCC. After he experienced the developing of the memory library including SRAM, eDRAM, MROM, eFeRAM, and eFlash and high-speed interface IPs as a general manager for the last 6-years, he has been a Professor in Faculty of Information Engineering, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering in Fukuoka Institute of Technology, Fukuoka, Japan, since October, 2005. His current interests are focused on development of the machine-learning based energy efficiency enhanced AI system designs for AI everywhere era, including a development of a new machine-learning model for saving memory and its energy resources. He holds 215 registered Patents and has presented over 122 papers including the proceedings of international conferences. Dr. Yamauchi received the 1996 Remarkable Invention Award from Science and Technology Agency of Japanese government. He served a program committee of IEEE premium conferences like ISSCC, Symposium on VLSI Technology and Circuits, and ASSCC. He is a member of an SSCS and EDS of IEEE and a regular member of IEICE.
