Talk: Intelligent Architectures for Intelligent Machines Oct 7

Join Onur for his online talk in the HKUST Engineering x HKSTP Distinguished Speaker Series on Oct 7 at 11:00 CEST (Zurich time).

You can register here: https://calendar.ust.hk/events/hkust-engineering-x-hkstp-distinguished-speaker-series-webinar-intelligent-architectures

Computing is bottlenecked by data. Large amounts of application data overwhelm storage capability, communication capability, and computation capability of the modern machines we design today. As a result, many key applications’ performance, efficiency and scalability are bottlenecked by data movement.

Jointly hosted by SENG, HKUST AI Chip Center for Emerging Smart Systems and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, this webinar features a renowned computer architecture expert, Prof. Onur Mutlu from ETH Zurich. We will discuss the major shortcomings of modern architectures, the recent research that could enable computation close to data, as well as the guiding principles for future computing architecture and system designs. (Please click here for more information.)

Moderated by Prof. Tim Cheng, Dean of Engineering, register to get more insights on how intelligent architecture could be designed to handle data well.

Award: Jisung Park was awarded a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

Jisung Park was awarded a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from the National Research Foundation of Korea for his project on “Storage System Design for Machine Learning Applications”.

Congratulations Jisung — We look forward to having you in the group for another year!

The NRF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship supports promising Korean postdoctoral researchers in all fields of science and engineering for one year.
