Novel H2H mapping algorithm with both computation and communication awareness


New research paper "H2H: Heterogeneous Model to Heterogeneous System Mapping with Computation and Communication Awareness" from University of Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech. Abstract: "The complex nature of real-world problems calls for heterogeneity in both machine learning (ML) models and hardware systems. The heterogeneity in ML models comes from multi-sensor perceiving and multi-task lear... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Feb. 18


Cryogenic memory Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory demonstrated a new cryogenic memory cell circuit design based on coupled arrays of Josephson junctions. Such a memory could help enable exascale and quantum computing. The cells are designed to operate in super cold temperatures and were tested at just 4 Kelvin above absolute zero, about minus 452 degrees Fahrenheit. At these col... » read more

3 Ways To Reload Moore’s Law


The electronics revolution has been enabled because the cost and power per transistor has decreased 30% per year for the last 30 years — a fact usually associated with Moore's Law. This has been accomplished by simply reducing the transistor size while offsetting increased costs of equipment and mask levels, and by increased productivity from improved yield, throughput and wafer size. This... » read more

System Bits: Oct. 7


Towards spin-based computing It’s a given that semiconductors process electrical information, while magnetic materials enable long-term data storage. Along these lines, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Wisconsin-Madison have discovered a way to fuse these two distinct properties in a single material that they believe could pave the way for new ultrahigh den... » read more
