Modern Computing and Intelligent Programing Systems

  报告时间: 2018年6月7日(周四)上午10:00


  主讲人: Prof. Xipeng Shen, Associate Professor, NCSU


  In this talk, Dr. Shen will discuss some recent progress in the development of intelligent programming systems, especially in raising program analysis and optimizations to a new level, unleashing the hidden power of compilers, and making applications better harness the power of modern heterogeneous systems (e.g., GPU). He will demonstrate how the progress helps meet some major challenges in modern computing, including the rapid increase of the volume and variety of data, the rise of deep learning, the shift of computing towards cloud and IoT, and the fast development of heterogeneity in processors and memory.


  Xipeng Shen is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at North Carolina State University. He is a receipt of U.S. DOE Early Career Research Award, U.S. NSF CAREER Award, Google Faculty Research Award, IBM CAS Faculty Fellowship, and NCSU University Scholar Award. He is an ACM Distinguished Speaker. His research lies in the broad field of compiler and programming systems, with an emphasis on enabling data-intensive high performance computing and intelligent computing through innovations in both compilers and runtime systems. Prior to joining NC State in 2014, Shen was the Adina Allen Term Distinguished Associate Professor at The College of William and Mary. He was a Visiting Scientist at MIT and Microsoft Research, and had served as a consultant to Intel Labs and Cisco. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Rochester in 2006, M.S. from Chinese of Academy of Sciences in 2001, and B.S. from the North China University of Technology in 1998.
