Artificial Intelligence is here, not only to stay, but to change our world. A long time ago Humans invented the wheel to move faster and to help relieving their muscles by heavy jobs. Today we, Humans, are shaping and developing the AI, to help our most important muscle, the brain, to go further and open new unthinkable landscapes, new opportunities and new jobs.
Mentium has the technology to bring ultra-fast Cloud-quality AI to low power electronics, like cameras, sensors, wearable accessories, bringing the performances of Edge AI beyond imagination.

Dmitri B. Strukov received the M.S. degree in applied physics and mathematics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, Russia in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, USA, in 2006. He is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of California at Santa Barbara. Prior to joining UC Santa Barbara, Dr. Strukov worked as a postdoctoral associate at Hewlett Packard Laboratories on various aspects of nanoelectronic computing systems. His research broadly concerns different aspects of computation, addressing computation efficiency on various levels of abstraction, and spans across different disciplines including material science, device physics, circuit design, high level computer architecture, and algorithms with the emphasis on the emerging device technologies. In the past several years, his major focus was on metal-oxide memristors and floating-gate circuits for neurocomputing. His group was the first to demonstrate pattern classification task with memristor crossbar circuits and redesigned NOR flash memory. Dr. Strukov has received 14 patents and published more than 100 original research publications, which have won best paper awards on multiple occasions.
Konstantin K. Likharev received the Candidate (Ph.D.) degree in Physics from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia in 1969, and the habilitation degree of Doctor of Sciences from the Higher Attestation Committee of the U.S.S.R. in 1979. From 1969 to 1988 Dr. Likharev was a Staff Scientist of Moscow State University, and from 1989 to 1991 the Head of the Laboratory for Cryoelectronics of that university. In 1991 he assumed a Professorship at Stony Brook University (Distinguished Professor since 2002). During his research career, Dr. Likharev worked in the fields of nonlinear classical and dissipative quantum dynamics, and solid-state physics and electronics, notably including superconductor electronics and nanoelectronics. His current research interests are in the architecture and nanoelectronic implementation of high-performance neuromorphic networks. Dr. Likharev is an author of more than 350 original publications, 80+ review papers and book chapters, 2 monographs, an online lecture note series “Essential Graduate Physics”, and several patents. He is a Fellow of the APS and IEEE.
