Software-defined Microarchitecture: An Arguably Terrible Idea, But Certainly Not The Worst Idea

James Mickens from Harvard University gave this talk at HiPEAC 2020. “In this presentation, I will describe some of the benefits that would emerge from a new kind of processor that aggressively exposes microarchitectural state and allows it to be programmed. Using elaborate hand gestures and cheap pleas for sympathy, I will explain why my proposals are different than prior “open microarchitecture” ideas like transport-triggered designs.”

2020 HiPEAC Conference to Showcase European Computing Technologies

The 2020 HiPEAC conference will kick off next week in Bologna to showcase the innovative made-in-Europe technologies driving computing systems from the edge to the cloud. This year, the conference will dive into radical new developments in European processor technology, including open source hardware, while building on HiPEAC’s long-established reputation for cutting-edge research into heterogeneous architectures, cross-cutting artificial intelligence themes, security and more.
