Title: Energy-Efficient CGRA Accelerators: Intelligence at the Edge

Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) system architectures are rapidly moving towards edge computing where computational intelligence is embedded in the edge devices near the sensors instead of the remote cloud for time-sensitivity, security, privacy, and connectivity reasons. At present, the limited computing capability of power, area constrained edge devices severely restricts their potential. I will present software-defined Coarse-Grained Reconfigurable Architecture (CGRA) accelerators as a promising approach to offer close to fixed-functionality ASIC-like energy efficiency while supporting diverse applications through full compile-time configurability. The central challenge for CGRAs is efficient spatio-temporal mapping of the applications expressed in high-level programming languages with complex data dependencies, control flow, and memory accesses to the accelerator. We approach this challenge through a synergistic hardware-software co-designed approach with (a) innovations at the architecture level to improve the efficiency of the application execution as well as ease the burden on the compilation, and (b) innovations at the compiler level to fully exploit the architectural optimizations for quality and fast mapping.
