Description of the subject area
This project will address the large portion of energy consumed by modern memory systems by integrating data across multiple layers of the system (from hardware to software) to more intelligently move and place data. To accomplish this, we will develop new hardware techniques for sharing data and policies between different components of the processor and memory system, design more efficient means of locating and accessing data, and integrate high-level information from the compiler, operating system, and runtime. We expect that the successful applicant will be able to work with and extend the memory system technologies pioneered by our group (Tagless caches and Direct-to-Data caches) as well as drive the project forwards based on his or her own background and expertise. The position will be in the computer architecture group as part of a Wallenberg Academy Fellowship project.
