Workshop on AI-assisted Design for Architecture

The 2nd International Workshop on AI-assisted Design for Architecture (AIDArc-2)
in conjunction with ISCA 2019
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
June 22, 2019

Recent advancements in machine learning algorithms, fueled by increased data availability and high-performance computing infrastructure, have led to successful applications of machine learning (and AI in general) in numerous disciplines and domains. Although much attention has been drawn in the computer architecture community on accelerating machine learning, limited research has been conducted to utilize the power of AI/ML to help architects design better computer architectures and systems.

The AIDArc Workshop is intended to bring together researchers, scientists and practitioners across academia and industry, to share early discoveries, successful examples, and opinions on opportunities and challenges regarding utilizing AI to assist computer architecture designs. Research along this line may potentially transform the way computers are designed and optimized. It may also lead to interesting “self-evolving architecture”, where AI helps to speed up computers which, in turn, are used to speed up the AI.

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Henry Hoffmann from the University of Chicago. A tentative schedule is available at
