In this video from the 2014 HPC User Forum in Seattle, Jan van Lunteren from IBM Research Labs in Zurich presents: Memory-Driven Near-Data Acceleration and its Application to DOME/SKA.

Can we design a programmable custom accelerator that outperforms off-the-shelf technology for a sufficiently large number of applications to justify the costs? The New Programmable Near-Memory Accelerator is made feasible by novel state machine and address mapping technologies that enable programmable address generation, address mapping, and access scheduling operations in “real-time.” The objective is to minimize the (energy) overhead that goes beyond the basic storage and processing needs (memory and execution units).
