Special Session (Research)
DescriptionCustomized computing with domain-specific accelerators (DSAs) has demonstrated significant performance and energy efficiency over general-purpose CPUs in recent years. Yet an important question is whether typical software developers can design and implement their own customized DSAs, with affordability and efficiency, to accelerate their applications. In this talk, we present our latest research on automated accelerator synthesis on FPGAs, including microarchitecture guided optimization, such as automated systolic array generation, and general source-to-source transformation based on machine learning techniques.
