I am an Associate Professor in State Key Laboratory of Computer Architecture at Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. At ICT, my research interests primarily focus on the area of reliable computer architecture and VLSI design, with an emphasis on memory systems, energy-efficient accelerators, and approximate/error-tolerant computing. I'm also leading the DeepBurning Project.
[June 2021] Mengdi's work on multi-task learning accelerator has been granted the best paper award (2nd place) of GLVLSI2021.
[June 2021] The codes of Optimus: A memory-efficient scheduler for Neural Networks have been verified by ACM and is now released.
[Apr 2021] "GLIST: Towards In-Storage Graph Learning" will be presented at Usenix ATC2021 by Cangyuan Li.
[Apr 2021] "PicoVO: A Lightweight RGB-D Visual Odometry Targeting Resource-Constrained IoT Devices" will be presented at ICRA2021 by Yuquan He.
[Apr 2021] Two of Our works are accepted by GLVLSI2021, one of which is nominated as the best paper candidate. Congrats to Mengdi!
[Apr 2021] Two of Our works on neural network architecture and scheduler co-design are accepted by LCTES2021. The code under the Artifact Evaluation process will be open-sourced.
[Mar 2021] Our work on NAS acceleration processor has been accepted by ISCA2021. Congrats to Xiaohan.
[Feb 2021] Six papers are accepted by DAC2021. The second and third works on Intelligent Video Processing Unit will be presented at the conference.
[July 2020] Three papers are accepted by ICCAD2020. The work of DeepBurning-GL, which is the first automated framework for GNN accelerator design, will be presented in Dec. 2020.
[Feb 2019] Four papers are accepted by DAC2020, congrats to Songyun, Yintao, Xiandong and Yongchen!
[Feb 2019] Our first ICLR paper got accepted, congrats to Xiandong! The best part is that it will be a great experience for us to explore the great continent of wild Africa!
[Nov 2019] Three papers are accepted by DATE2020. The interesting thing is that the paper "You Only Search Once: An Automated Framework for Fast DNN/Accelerator Co-design" actually proposed a novel NAS algorithm, which coincides with the idea of one contemporary work submitted to ICLR2020. However, we missed to claim the contribution due to the lack of backgrounds knowledge on AI algorithms 😃
 Wen's work on Computing-in-Memory has been elected as the sole best paper of ICCD2019.
 Invited to give a talk on "A case of Agile development flow for edge AI processors" at ICTA2019, Chengdu.
 🥈We are the champions of 2018 DAC System Design Contest (GPU category), big congrats to Hao Lv! The source-code of the low-power object tracking solution will be released soon.
 The first detailed architectural simulator for Processing-in-Memory is now released by Professor Yinhe Han's lab!!
 Our AI-enabled RISC-V duo-core chip passed the final test! I will give a talk-A Tightly-coupled Light-Weight Neural Network Processing Units with RISC-V Core-at the 7th RISC-V Workshop, Milpitas, CA.
