Machine-Learning tasks are becoming pervasive in a broad range of domains, and in a broad range of systems (from embedded systems to data centers). At the same time, a small set of machine-learning algorithms (especially Convolutional and Deep Neural Networks, i.e., CNNs and DNNs) are proving to be state-of-the-art across many applications. As architectures(More)
Many companies are deploying services, either for consumers or industry, which are largely based on machine-learning algorithms for sophisticated processing of large amounts of data. The state-of-the-art and most popular such machine-learning algorithms are Convolutional and Deep Neural Networks (CNNs and DNNs), which are known to be both computationally(More)
Modern compilers are responsible for translating the idealistic operational semantics of the source program into a form that makes efficient use of a highly complex heterogeneous machine. Since optimization problems are associated with huge and unstructured search spaces, this combinational task is poorly achieved in general, resulting in weak scalability(More)
While most research papers on computer architectures include some performance measurements, these performance numbers tend to be distrusted. Up to the point that, after so many research articles on data cache architectures, for instance, few researchers have a clear view of what are the best data cache mechanisms. To illustrate the usefulness of a fair(More)
In recent years, neural network accelerators have been shown to achieve both high energy efficiency and high performance for a broad application scope within the important category of recognition and mining applications. Still, both the energy efficiency and performance of such accelerators remain limited by memory accesses. In this paper, we focus on(More)
Static compiler optimizations can hardly cope with the complex run-time behavior and hardware components interplay of modern processor architectures. Multiple architectural phenomena occur and interact simultaneously, which requires the optimizer to combine multiple program transformations. Whether these transformations are selected through static analysis(More)
Tuning compiler optimizations for rapidly evolving hardware makes porting and extending an optimizing compiler for each new platform extremely challenging. Iterative optimization is a popular approach to adapting programs to a new architecture automatically using feedback-directed compilation. However, the large number of evaluations required for each(More)
Applying the right compiler optimizations to a particular program can have a significant impact on program performance. Due to the non-linear interaction of compiler optimizations, however, determining the best setting is nontrivial. There have been several proposed techniques that search the space of compiler options to find good solutions; however such(More)
We seek to extend the scope and efficiency of iterative compilation techniques by searching not only for program transformation parameters but for the most appropriate transformations themselves. For that purpose, we need to find a generic way to express program transformations and compositions of transformations. In this article, we introduce a framework(More)
