ASPIRE End of Project Celebration December 5, 2017
12/5/17 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

The ASPIRE Laboratory started in 2013 as a 5-year research project that recognized the shift from transistor-scaling-driven performance improvements to a new post-scaling world where whole-stack co-design is the key to improved efficiency. Our goal has been to use deep hardware and software co-tuning to … Continue reading
