Purdue Researchers Peer into the ‘Fog of the Machine Learning Accelerator War’

Making sense of ML performance and benchmark data is an ongoing challenge. In light of last week’s release of the most recent MLPerf (v1.1) inference results, now is perhaps a good time to review how valuable (or not) such ML benchmarks are and the challenges they face. Two researchers from Purdue University recently tackled this issue in a fascinating blog on ACM SIGARCH – An Academic’s Attempt to Clear the Fog of the Machine Learning Accelerator War.

Purdue technology for downscaling transistors could advance semiconductor design

An innovation by Purdue University researchers could help the semiconductor industry design transistors that are smaller, use less power and switch from on to off at smaller applied voltages. As a result, the innovation could lead to better and more powerful central processing unit generations, which can compute more operations with less energy.

Can sea slugs help make AI smarter?

Researchers have found that a material can mimic the sea slug’s most essential intelligence features. The discovery is a step toward building hardware that could help make AI more efficient and reliable for technology ranging from self-driving cars and surgical robots to social media algorithms.

“Through studying sea slugs, neuroscientists discovered the hallmarks of intelligence that are fundamental to any organism’s survival,” says Shriram Ramanathan, a professor of materials engineering at Purdue University. “We want to take advantage of that mature intelligence in animals to accelerate the development of AI.”

First observation of high-harmonic generation in robust, refractory metals

In this study, researchers used titanium nitride to achieve HHG in refractory metals for the first time. In the future, this could pave the way to focusing the radiation down to nanoscale for use in nanomachining, nanofabrication and medical applications, as well as HHG enhancement for the generation of frequency combs for the next generation of nuclear clocks.

Let the data do the work

Efficient farming and agricultural decision-making will increasingly depend on usable farm-level data and software. But just because something is technically possible doesn’t mean it is simple to figure out. Working through the headaches to get data and systems to work well together is one of the chief aims of a group of engineers and scientists at Purdue University.

Indiana DOT, Purdue University developing wireless EV charging for highways

This project is part of Advancing Sustainability through Powered Infrastructure for Roadway Electrification (ASPIRE), a National Science Foundation-funded research and development initiative to accelerate sustainable and equitable transportation electrification. Purdue's Pekarek says being part of this type of consortium is beneficial for information sharing to advance the technology.

INDOT, Purdue To Create Road That Charges Heavy Trucks, Cars As They Drive

The Indiana Department of Transportation and Purdue University want to build a stretch of highway that would charge electric cars as they drive. INDOT said electrifying the state’s highways would reduce pollution and support Indiana companies that make parts for new electric heavy trucks.

Purdue professor working to stop cyber attacks

Ransomware cyber attacks are continuing to affect businesses around the globe, but a Purdue expert is working to put a stop to it.

The most recent attack happened last weekend, and it affected companies by targeting their software vendor, Kaseya.

The hackers then demanded a ransom of $70 million.
But imagine a race with no drivers in the cars?

That's going to happen at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this fall.

The IMS and Energy Systems Network have partnered up for the Indy Autonomous Challenge: a 50-mile autonomous car race that will showcase technology and innovation at the Racing Capital of the World.
