Heterogeneous Computing Research for Datacenter And HPC Applications


Christoph Hagleitner, IBM Research - Zürich -- 20-04-2015


The latest Top500 and Green500 lists of the most powerful and energy-efficient computers are dominated by heterogeneous systems. The slowing gains in performance and energy-efficiency provided by traditional technology scaling and parallel computing have opened a window of opportunity for innovative heterogeneous systems, but also increase system complexity. In order to be successful, HW accelerator cores must combine everything from new device technology and innovative architectures to network/system integration and tool  support.


Christoph Hagleitner obtained a diploma degree and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH),  Zurich in 1997 and 2002, respectively. During his Ph.D. work, Christoph Hagleitner specialized in interface circuitry and system aspects of CMOS integrated micro- and nanosystems. In 2003 he joined IBM Research - Zürich in Rüschlikon, Switzerland where he worked on the system architecture and mixed-signal design of a novel probe-storage device. Since 2008, he manages the Accelerator technologies group. The main research direction of the group are performance / energy-optimized HW accelerators for next-generation
computing systems. He has authored and co-authored several book chapters and 70+ papers in journals and conference proceedings.
