Jin had a presentation at COOL Chips 27

Hi, this is D3 student Jin Yifan.

The 27th IEEE Symposium on Low-Power and High-Speed Chips and Systems (COOL Chips 27) was successfully held during April 17-19, 2024.

The presentations and discussions on PiM (Processing in Memory) and CiM (Compute in Memory) at the conference were impressive.
How to use these techniques to mitigate the huge amount of energy consumption generated by AI computation is becoming an important topic.

I was delighted to present the progress of my research as a poster.
I received many useful comments and suggestions from other participants.
Additionally, the discussions with other poster presenters were interesting.

Laboratory Seminars has started.

Hello, this is Tanizawa of M1.

The Laboratory Seminars has resumed the other day.
The Laboratory Seminars is a weekly seminar held in the entire laboratory. B4 students also started participating from today.
M1 students will also introduce their papers from this year, so let’s work even harder!

Cherry blossom viewing was held!

Hello, this is Tanizawa of M1.

The other day, we had a cherry blossom viewing in front of Kawauchi Hagi Hall. It was a lot of fun for everyone to bring food and drinks and talk with each other.
The cherry blossoms bloomed earlier than normal this year, and it was a very nice day for cherry blossom viewing. It is nice to spend time outside once in a while for a change.

There was a degree conferment ceremony!

Hello, my name is Tanizawa, and I will be an M1 student from April.

On March 26, we had a graduation and degree conferment ceremony. I have mixed feelings of happiness and sadness when I think that this is the end of my undergraduate life.
From April, the seniors who have taken care of me will be gone, and at the same time, the environment will change drastically. With a fresh start, I will do my best in my future research.

We submitted our graduation thesis!

Hello, my name is Tanizawa from B4.

The other day, I successfully submitted my graduation thesis.
Thanks to the guidance and support I received from my professors and seniors in various aspects from research policy to writing the thesis, I was able to complete my graduation thesis. Thank you very much.
I would like to make the most of what I have learned in my graduation research and continue to work hard on my research in the master’s program!

A farewell party was held!

Hello, this is Tanizawa from B4.
We held a farewell party the other day.
This year, Mike, Liu, Aoyagi, Ishii, and Nakai will graduate.
New members will join us from April, and we will start a new laboratory life in Takizawa Lab. I would like to do my best to become as good as my seniors.
I wish them all the best in their new endeavors and for the further development of Takizawa Lab!

Koda presented at a Multidisciplinary Seminar

Hello! My name is Koda, M1.

A Multidisciplinary Seminar was held on March 6. M1 student Koda gave a presentation at the seminar.
In the Multidisciplinary Seminar, we present our research results and future research plans to M1 students in other laboratories.

It was very difficult to explain our current research to students from other fields in an easy-to-understand manner. However, we received comments from various perspectives, and it was a very valuable time for us.
I would like to do my best in my future research by referring to the comments I received!

Graduation Research Presentation Program is over!!

Hello, this is Tanizawa from B4.
graduation research presentation program was held on February 13~14. With the help of my professors and seniors, I was able to successfully complete my presentation.
I was able to listen to the research of other students in the aerospace engineering course at the presentation, which was very interesting and informative.
Now we will start writing our graduation theses. I will keep working hard until the deadline on March 4!

Presented at the master’s thesis final review

Hello, my name is Nakai, an M2 student.
The main review meeting for master’s degree was held from February 7.
From Takizawa Lab, three students, Aoyagi, Ishii, and Nakai made presentations.
We are happy that all of them successfully completed their presentations and submitted their master’s theses (duplicates) by the deadline.

We will continue to work hard until the submission of the final draft of the master’s thesis, taking into consideration the comments given by the judges in this presentation.
I would like to thank all the professors in my laboratory for their time and effort in helping me revise my thesis and practice my presentation.

Participation in HPCAsia 2024.

Hello, I am Nakai from M2.

I participated in HPCAsia2024, which was held from 25 to 27 January.
From our lab, Mike, Sai, Aoyagi, Ishii and Nakai participated in the poster session.
The programme of the poster session can be found here.

It was the first time for us to make a presentation in English, and we had a hard time, but it was a good experience.
The hitsu-mabushi we all ate together was also very delicious.
