CLOSED Call for Papers: Special Issue on Machine Learning for Systems
Share this on:
Submissions Due: 2 March 2020
The proliferation of hardware accelerators has enabled the pervasive use of machine-learning algorithms in a range of diverse real-world applications, from computer vision to natural language processing. In addition to building the systems and accelerators that have enabled this current momentum in artificial intelligence, the computer architecture community has also explored these new models to improve and optimize the computing systems that we build.
This is a less-explored but promising research direction, with important implications across the full computing stack: from software performance and profiling to operating systems, compilers, architecture, microarchitecture, and circuit design. Potential improvements involve increasing hardware performance and efficiency, performing design space explorations, improving design automation, and reducing the efforts of architecting and designing hardware.
This special issue of IEEE Micro will explore broadly the use of machine learning including supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning-based techniques to improve computer architecture and computer systems. Papers on the following topics are solicited:
Use of machine learning to improve:
Computer Architecture, Microarchitecture, and Accelerators
Circuit Design and Layout
Interconnects and Networking
Memory and Storage Systems
Computing at the Edge
Algorithm Optimization of Hardware and Software Systems
