"Deep Learning for Compilers" presented by Hugh Leather

April 14, 2021 | 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Hugh will discuss recent advances in using deep learning to solve compiler issues: learning heuristics and testing compiler correctness.


About this Event

Abstract:

Writing optimising compilers is difficult. The range of programs that may be presented to the compiler is huge and the system on which they run are complex, heterogeneous, non-deterministic, and constantly changing. Machine learning has been shown to make writing compiler heuristics easier, but many issues remain.

Bio:

Hugh was a reader (associate professor) at the University of Edinburgh and is now working with Facebook as an Artificial Intelligence Researcher. His research involves all elements of compilers and operating systems, usually targeting performance and energy optimisation, often with a focus on using machine learning for those tasks. After his PhD, also at Edinburgh, he was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Engineering. Before returning to academia, he was an engineer at Microsoft and architect and team leader at Trilogy, delivering multi-million dollar projects to Fortune 500 companies.







Who we are

CompSoc is NUI Galway’s Computer and Networking Society. We host events for everything computing related from how to setup your own blog to System Administration and Programming Tutorials. We also host a number of services on our Society run servers for our members. CompSoc is the oldest computer-related society in Ireland, while many Alumni believe it was much earlier, was formally established in 1977 during the days that the University was known as UCG.

Our mission

CompSoc’s main goal is to try and foster a love and passion for all things technology related in NUI Galway. We host a wide variety of events to work towards this goal, including workshops about Linux, hardware and programming. As outlined under our Constitution, our aims is to “promote and increase awareness of electronic communication and related computer systems, a forum to discuss and gain experience in computer networking and systems and to help educate people in the usage of Internet utilities and resources”.
