MILEPOST press release

Posted by Igor Thu, 20 Nov 2008 09:00:00 GMT

In work related to the MilePost project, researchers at Edinburgh University are carrying out various activities that combine machine learning with compilers. In one such project, led by Dr Timothy Jones, machine-learning techniques are being used to aid manufacturers during the design of new embedded processors. The machine-learning methods allow the compiler to be incorporated into the design process, allowing manufacturers to explore processor configurations with greater knowledge of how the final system will perform. This allows them to create more efficient processors, speeding up the design process and producing more energy-efficient devices. For more information, please see the links below:
