Efficient AI Computing for the Planet

In this keynote talk from the 2020 HiPEAC conference, Alesssandro Cremonesi from STMicroelectronics describes how artificial intelligence (AI) is the central nervous system of an increasingly connected world. He sets out both the benefits and potential pitfalls of AI, before arguing that AI now has to move beyond performance to efficiency in order to be sustainable. “So far, AI developments have been focused on performances regardless of the computational power needed, reaching in some applications performances better than the human ones. Now it is time to focus on efficient computation.”

Video: RISC-V momentum around the world, from edge to HPC

In this keynote talk from the 2020 HiPEAC conference, RISC-V Foundation Chief Executive Calista Redmond explains how the RISC-V open-source instruction set architecture is gathering momentum around the world, finding applications across the compute continuum from edge to high-performance computing. “The RISC-V ecosystem is poised to significantly grow over the next five years. Semico Research predicts that the market will consume a total of 62.4 billion RISC-V central processing unit (CPU) cores by 2025!”

Video: Deep Learning for resource-constrained systems

Amos Storkey from the University of Edinburgh gave this talk at HiPEAC CSW Edinburgh. “Storkey explores the demands of getting deep learning software to work on embedded devices, with challenges including real-time requirements, memory availabilit and the energy budget. He discusses work undertaken within the context of the European Union-funded Bonseyes project.”

Video: Large scale industrial simulations using HPC at Rolls-Royce

Leigh Lapworth from Rolls-Royce gave this talk at m Computing Systems Week Edinburgh 2019. “Simulation and modeling, enabled by high performance computing, have transformed the way Rolls-Royce designs and engineers its products. Every advance in computing power unlocks the power to do more with simulation and modeling whether this is larger models to give higher fidelity; or, higher throughput of models to explore a larger part of the design space.”

Quantum Computing: From Qubits to Quantum Accelerators

Koen Bertels from Delft University of Technology gave this talk at HiPEAC 2019. “In my talk, I will introduce what quantum computers are but also how they can be used as a quantum accelerator. I will discuss why a quantum computer can be more powerful than any classical computer and what the components are of its system architecture. In this context, I will talk about our current research topics on quantum computing, what the main challenges are and what is available to our community.”

Koen De Bosschere receives ACM SIGARCH Alan D. Berenbaum Distinguished Service Award

Today ACM announced that Koen De Bosschere from HiPEAC has won the Alan D. Berenbaum Distinguished Service Award. Recognized for outstanding service in the field of computer architecture and design, Professor De Bosschere was nominated for structuring and connecting the European research community in computer architecture and compilation. “Leading the HiPEAC community, contributing to the HiPEAC Vision and observing the its impact has always been a very rewarding experience for me,” said De Bosscher. “I feel very honored to receive the Alan D. Berenbaum Distinguished Service Award and I would like to dedicate it to all our members and the staff, without whom there would be no HiPEAC.”

Video: HiPEAC Conference Looks at Innovations in Computer Architecture

This video features highlights from the first day at the HiPEAC conference, which took place last week in Manchester. HiPEAC is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems. “HiPEAC Coordinator Koen De Bosschere tells us what’s been going on, including a great keynote talk from Maria Girone at CERN. Meanwhile, Arm’s John Goodacre tells us why Manchester is a great location for the conference and why it’s important for companies like Arm to be involved in HiPEAC.”

HiPEAC17 to Focus on Memory Systems, Energy Efficiency and Cybersecurity

Taking place in Stockholm from 23-25 January, the 12th HiPEAC conference will bring together Europe’s top thinkers on computer architecture and compilation to tackle the key issues facing the computing systems on which we depend. HiPEAC17 will see the launch of the HiPEAC Vision 2017, a technology roadmap which lays out how technology affects our lives and how it can, and should, respond to the challenges facing European society and economies, such as the aging population, climate change and shortages in the ICT workforce.

HiPEAC Seeks Your Input for the Next Ten Years of Computing

The good folks at the European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation (HiPEAC) have launched a call for contributions to the 2017 edition of the HiPEAC Vision, which will set out the way forward for computing systems over the next ten years. “Published every two years, HiPEAC’s definitive roadmap provides guidance for policy makers and technologists on key issues in the area of computing systems, such as security, reliability and energy efficiency.”
