MARC: Mining Advantages in non-deteRministic Code

The application landscape is rapidly evolving including more often non-deterministic (e.g., randomized) algorithms. Current compilers ignore whether or not a program being compiled is randomized, leaving important opportunities unexplored. The MARC research project aims to identify and exploit such opportunities.

Parallelizing compilers for shared-memory multicores

The multicore revolution in microprocessor architecture has left most programs behind. A program that maps easily to multicore architectures is the exception, not the rule. Our goal is to map virtually all programs to a multicore platform gaining unprecedented performance.

Compilers for Sub-Cycle Microarchitecture Activities

Safety margins in conventional architectures are conservative to always avoid computational errors leading to energy inefficiencies. Resilient architectures squeeze these margins to save energy, correcting errors through costly rollback. Co-designed compilers can help resilient architectures to reduce their overhead by adapting the running code to their run-time characteristics

The power of modern compilers for the hardware-software stack

Modern compilers are more powerful than what they are currently used for. This research direction shows how modern compilers create opportunities to reconsider the abstractions used between the layers of the hardware-software stack. Changing such abstractions generates important benefits compared to how we have been designing systems.

Bytecode Virtual Machines

Virtual machines designed to execute bytecode programs are everywhere. The most successful and widely-adopted examples are Java and .NET. Browsers are virtual machines as well thanks to their ability to run programs written in multiple languages (e.g., JavaScript). A bytecode virtual machine usually includes several components. Code generators, code optimizers, garbage collectors, execution engine, and profilers are the most common ones. Understanding interactions of these components allows them to be co-designed, which open interesting optimization opportunities.
