DFG grants funding for third phase of the SFB/Transregion 89 "Invasive Computing"


After the very successful evaluation of the second funding period of the SFB/Transregion 89 "Invasive Computing" at the end of January 2018, the German Science Foundation (DFG) now announced that funding will be granted for the third project phase of four more years (till June 2022).

Based on the results gained in the first two phases on resource aware programming and associated invasive compute architectures as well as predictable program execution on such systems, the research focus will now be on coping with uncertainties resulting from inputs or platform internal factors and providing means to enforce required functional or non-functional properties.

At at the Chair of Integrated Systems we will focus on near-memory computing and data migration in invasive compute architectures, on representation learning to support dark silicon and power management, on automatic porting of legacy code from the robotic vision domain and on FPGA prototyping of such invasive compute systems. For the research on these topics, we will continue the cooperation with our university partners at FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
