Generalize Or Die: Operating Systems Support For Memristor-Based Accelerators   The deceleration of transistor feature size scaling has motivated growing adoption of specialized accelerators implemented as GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs, and more recently new types of computing such as neuromorphic, bio-inspired, ultra low energy, reversible, stochastic, optical, quantum, combinations, and others unforeseen. In this talk IEEE Fellow Dr. Dejan Milojicic revisits OS functionality for memristor-based accelerators. He explores one accelerator implementation, the Dot Product Engine (DPE), for a select patternof applications in machine learning, imaging, and scientific computing and a small set of use cases. He elaborates on the claim that making an accelerator, such as the DPE, more general will result in broader adoption and better utilization. ,  Wednesday, December 14, 2017 7:00-8:00 PM,   88 Commercial Street manchester, New Hampshire Room 502, UNH Manchester Pandora Bldg
