Rethinking of Computing - Memory-Centric or In-Memory Computing

Abstract - Flash memory opens a window of opportunities to a new world of computing over 20 years ago. Since then, storage devices gain their momentum in performance, energy, and even access behaviors. With over 1000 times in performance improvement over storage in recent years, there is another wave of adventure in removing traditional I/O bottlenecks in computer designs. In this talk, I shall first address the opportunities of new system architectures in computing. In particular, hybrid modules of DRAM and non-volatile memory (NVM) and all NVM-based main memory will be considered. I would also comment on a joint management framework of host/CPU and a hybrid memory module to break down the great memory wall by bridging the process information gap between host/CPU and a hybrid memory module. I will then present some solutions in neuromorphic computing which empower memory chips to own new capabilities in computing. In particular, I shall address challenges in in-memory computing in application co-designs and show how to utilize special characteristics of non-volatile memory in deep learning.

Bio - Prof. Kuo received his B.S.E. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from National Taiwan University and University of Texas at Austin in 1986 and 1994, respectively. He is now Distinguished Professor of Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering of National Taiwan University, where he was an Interim President (2017.10-2019.01) and an Executive Vice President for Academics and Research (2016.08-2019.01). Between August 2019 and July 2022, Prof. Kuo took a leave to join City University of Hong Kong as Lee Shau Kee Chair Professor of Information Engineering, Advisor to President (Information Technology), and Founding Dean of College of Engineering. His research interest includes embedded systems, non-volatile-memory software designs, neuromorphic computing, and real-time systems.

Dr. Kuo is Fellow of ACM, IEEE, and US National Academy of Inventors. He is also a Member of European Academy of Sciences and Arts. He is Vice Chair of ACM SIGAPP and Chair of ACM SIGBED Award Committee. Prof. Kuo received numerous awards and recognition, including Humboldt Research Award (2021) from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany), Outstanding Technical Achievement and Leadership Award (2017) from IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems, and Distinguished Leadership Award (2017) from IEEE Technical Committee on Cyber-Physical Systems. Prof. Kuo is the founding Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems (2015-2021) and a program committee member of many top conferences. He has over 300 technical papers published in international journals and conferences and received many best paper awards, including the Best Paper Award from ACM/IEEE CODES+ISSS 2019 and 2022 and ACM HotStorage 2021.
