Prof. Kiyoung Choi from Seoul National University Visited CECA


Prof. Kiyoung Choi from Seoul National University Visited CECA and gave a talk on "Processing at Various Levels of Memory Hierarchy" on dec. 21, 2017.

ABSTRACT:  Near-data processing is to process data near the memory where the data reside. The main goal is to save time and energy for data movement. The basic concept is not new; there were many attempts to realize it in 1990s, but they were unsuccessful at that time. Recently, the concept is reviving as a promising solution to the memory wall crisis in the big data era.
