Welcome at AES


The Embedded Systems Architecture (Architektur eingebetteter Systeme, AES) group investigates and teaches the field of computer architecture, ranging from low-power embedded systems to massively parallel high-performance systems. We focus on the design, implementation and optimization of high performance embedded systems; taking into account the interactions between applications, tools, and architectures. In addition to high performance we also aim at improving energy efficiency, programmability, predictability, error resilience, as well as other features of emerging computer systems.

16 January 2017: Two AES-papers accepted at IPDPS 2017.

The first paper "E²MC: Entropy Encoding based Memory Compression for GPUs" is authored by Sohan Lal, Jan Lucas and Ben Juurlink. This paper proposes an entropy encoding based memory compression technique for GPUs. The proposed compression technique addressed the key challenges of probability estimation, choosing an appropriate symbol length for encoding, and decompression with low latency. It achieves higher compression ratio and performance gain compared to the state of the art.
The second paper "Autotuning Stencil Computations with Structural Ordinal Regression Learning" is authored by Biagio Cosenza, Juan Durillo, Stefano Ermon and Ben Juurlink. The paper is a collaboration between TU Berlin, the University of Innsbruck and Stanford University on new machine learning methodologies for automatic tuning. It proposes a new way of automatically tuning stencil computations based on structural learning. Experimental evaluations show that even with a small training set consisting of a few thousand points, our approach performs close to the sub-optimal solution of the problem. more to: 16 January 2017: Two AES-papers accepted at IPDPS 2017.
