Cognitive Workloads 2017 : Workshop Exploiting Accelerator Diversity for Cognitive Workloads


When Oct 14, 2017 - Oct 14, 2017
Where Cambridge, MA
Submission Deadline TBD
Categories    computer architecture   processor design   cognitive systems   accelerator design

Call For Papers

End to End Cognitive workflows span varying degrees of granularity of parallelism. Accelerating such workflows using a single accelerator type usually provides speedup only for a limited set of stages. IBM's next-generation POWER9 systems will support a large collection of accelerator types switched through a high bandwidth on-chip crossbar switch. This will allow a large class of workloads and multi-granular workflows to be accelerated using a single platform. This workshop will explore acceleration opportunities in existing and upcoming workflows. We will also explore the creation of a community & ecosystem around POWER9 acceleration technology for academics and industry practitioners. This workshop is co-located with the 50th International Symposium for Microarchitecture (MICRO - 2017)


14th October, 2017
