Title

The Quest for Efficient and Trustworthy Systems

Abstract

Abstract

Today, the growth of the software ecosystem is faster than ever before. Software systems are increasingly more complex and consist of deep stacks. Software’s soaring complexity combined with the end of Moore's Law is causing a shift to a more heterogeneous hardware landscape, comprising CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, fast networks, and denser memory technologies. For the foreseeable future, improving the efficiency of computer systems will be crucial to enable society’s growing reliance on feature-rich software. Alas, trustworthiness in this complex ecosystem is often an afterthought. Consequently, software and hardware have been plagued with bugs that cause data loss, security vulnerabilities, and failures of critical infrastructure. Building systems that are simultaneously efficient (i.e., deliver high performance at scale, leverage heterogeneous resources) and trustworthy (i.e., contain fewer bugs, achieve greater security) is extremely challenging. In this talk, I will give an overview of the research of my group that focuses on developing systems that are simultaneously efficient and trustworthy, with a focus on real-world technical and societal impact.
