Building Robust Systems for the Energy Constrained Future (Lectures/Talks)
Joseph Callenes-Sloan, Ph.D., UT Dallas
In this talk, I will describe algorithmic and architectural approaches that leverage application and algorithm-awareness for building such systems. These approaches include a) a numerical optimization-based methodology for converting applications into a more error tolerant form, b) application-specific techniques for low-overhead fault detection and correction, and c) hardware support to leverage application-level error resilience. Our studies show that application and algorithm awareness can significantly increase the robustness of computing systems, while also reducing the cost of meeting reliability targets.
