Short Biography:

Abbas Rahimi received the B.S. degree in computer engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, in 2010, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science and engineering from the University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA, in 2015, followed by postdoctoral researches at the University of California Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA, and at the ETH Zürich, Zürich, Switzerland. In 2020, he has joined the IBM Research-Zürich laboratory in Rüschlikon, Switzerland, as a Research Staff Member.

His research interests include brain-inspired hyperdimensional computing, neuro-symbolic AI, distributed embedded intelligent systems, and in general approximation opportunities in computation, communication, sensing, and storage with an emphasis on improving energy efficiency and robustness. Dr. Rahimi has received the ETH Zürich Postdoctoral Fellowship, and the 2015 Outstanding Dissertation Award in the area of "New Directions in Embedded System Design and Embedded Software'' from the European Design and Automation Association. He was a co-recipient of the Best Paper Nominations at DAC (2013) and DATE (2019), and the Best Paper Awards at BICT (2017) and BioCAS (2018).
