Abstract:
Due to the ever-increasing number of connected devices, data is growing in an unprecedented and exponential rate. Emerging applications bring opportunities to extract insights from this explosion of data. However, this trend has coincided with the diminishing benefits from conventional transistor and microarchitecture performance scaling. We have entered the era of specialization where the hardware is being tailored and curated for a specific domain of application. However, designing hardware without considering the rest of the stack will not lead to the disruptive yet adoptable solutions that we need. As such, in this thesis, we explore breaking the traditional abstractions in the computing stack and define new programming models, system software layers, and hardware platforms that deliver orders of magnitude performance while providing low programming effort and ensuring productivity. We specifically consider two complementary specialization techniques, approximation and acceleration.
