Innovation in quantum computing – Quebec government awards $171, 292 to CMC Microsystems to support a unique training program in the world 

CMC Microsystems, Canada’s leading hardware technology facilitator, received an investment of $171,292 to fund a training initiative that is unique in the world: Build Your Own Superconducting Quantum Device workshop. This financial support is from the NovaScience program, an initiative of the Ministère de l’Économie, de l’Innovation et de l’Énergie (MEIE). NovaScience financially supports the development of the next generation of scientists in Québec by emphasizing and promoting scientific culture, as well as research and development (R&D) as well as business. It also allows new graduates to gain professional experience in research and development. Full story 

A study of the skills required by the Canadian photonics industry 

This study provides a comprehensive and up-to-date portrait of the skills desired by the Canadian photonics industry. To accomplish this, we investigate Canadian job postings on popular employment websites in optics and photonics to characterize clusters of skills in high demand. We supplement this investigation with an analysis of responses to a questionnaire from 87 representatives in 62 companies with Canadian operations. With this information, we provide specific recommendations for Canadian academic institutions and policymakers to improve the competitiveness of educational programs to better meet training needs conveyed by the industry..

250 Canadian start-ups in over 25 years

CMC simplifies access to advanced technologies for researchers, start-ups and SMEs. In the past 25 years, researchers have reported 250 spinoff companies of which more than half are still Canadian-controlled and active. The 10-year survival rate for CMCenabled start-ups is 78 percent, far better than the typical rate of about 45 percent. Full report 

New Untether tsunAImi tsn200ES Accelerator 

The runAI200™ accelerator is designed for real-time deep learning inference and high-performance computing (HPC) applications. Its unique at-memory architecture combines over 260,000 processing elements, 511 custom RISC-V processors, and 204 MB of SRAM into the industry’s most efficient chip in its class, delivering 8 TOPs/W. The imAIgine™ software development kit (SDK) enables push-button performance on deep learning networks in standard frameworks and a custom kernel development flow for high-performance computing applications that require arbitrary computation.
