    Talk Title: Towards Smarter Hardware Prediction Mechanisms

    Abstract: In today's data-driven world, memory system performance remains critical to the overall performance of many workloads. In this talk, we present recent work in two aspects of hardware caching: (1) The Hawkeye Cache (ISCA 2016), which introduces a novel method of solving the age-old problem of cache replacement, and (2) Harmony, which uncovers a new design space for cache replacement policies in the presence of prefetching (ISCA 2018). We will then briefly discuss ways that machine learning can help us improve upon these ideas, and we conclude by discussing the broader role machine learning can play in advancing memory system research.

    Biography: Akanksha Jain received her PhD in Computer Science from The University of Texas in December 2016. In 2009, she received the B.Tech and M. Tech degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. Her research interests are in computer architecture, with a particular focus on the memory system and on using machine learning techniques to improve the design of memory system optimizations.
