Better understanding of the climate system through digital simulation
News release

March 26, 2019

French scientists offer strong contribution to coordinated international effort to better understand the climate system through computer simulations.

Climate scientists at the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL) and CNRM-CERFACS announce today the release of new datasets that promise to provide fresh insights into past and future climate change. IPSL and CNRM-CERFACS are engaged, with other climate research centres, in an international effort to provide a new generation of climate change experiments.

Séminaire INHP@CT: Programming for In-Memory Computing

Friday january 18, 2019, Campus Ter@tec.

Maha Kooli, researcher at the Laboratory of Computer Science, Robotics and Microelectronics of Montpellier, will present his work on PProgramming In-Memory
 


Summary
In-Memory Computing (IMC) corresponds to a new data computation concept that brings the computing operations inside the memory units. It has been introduced to overcome the von Neumann bottleneck in terms of data transfer rate and power consumption.
A new IMC system based on SRAM architecture is introduced. It permits performing logic operations (and, or, xor, etc), arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, etc), and memory operations (set, reset, write, etc). IMC system permits highly parallel computation inside the memory.
At the current research stage, the circuit-level design of the IMC system has not been completed yet. We therefore introduce a dedicated software platform based on LLVM that includes emulation tools to early experiment and evaluate how applications can take advantage of the IMC system. We evaluate the execution time and the energy consumption and we compare to conventional CPU-based systems. We target different application scenarios in various fields (image processing, cryptography, intensive computation).
