Invited talk at GdR SOC2
The Groupement De Recherche System On Chip, Systèmes embarqués et Objets Connectés (GdR-SOC2) in France connects hundred of researchers working at different levels, from devices to systems, for future SOCs. In 2019, the yearly meeting of the GdR-SOC2 took place in Montpellier, hosted by the Polytech Montpellier – Université de Montpellier, from June 19 to June 21. Prof. Castrillon was invited to give a keynote in the design and methods topical area organized by Maxime Pelcat. His talk, entitled “SoC programming in the era of the Internet of Things, machine learning and emerging technologies”, touched upon current research activities in the CC Chair including (i) adaptive execution of embedded dataflow applications (Tetris), (ii) tensor expression languages and their important role for analyzing and optimizing kernels in machine learning (TeIL, TeML), and (iii) how these high level abstractions can be leveraged to optimize for emerging systems with, e.g., racetrack memories. The talk was attended by 170 researchers spawning interesting discussions.
