講者介紹:Naresh R. Shanbhag is the Jack Kilby Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research interests are in the design of robust and energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems for communications including VLSI architectures for error-control coding, and equalization, noise-tolerant integrated circuit design, error-resilient architectures and systems, and system-assisted mixed-signal design. Dr. Shanbhag received the 2010 Richard Newton GSRC Industrial Impact Award, became an IEEE Fellow in 2006, received the 2006 IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits Best Paper Award, the 2001 IEEE Transactions on VLSI Best Paper Award, the 1999 IEEE Leon K. Kirchmayer Best Paper Award, the 1999 Xerox Faculty Award, the Distinguished Lecturership from the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in 1997, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 1996, and the 1994 Darlington Best Paper Award from the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society. 

 

Dr. Shanbhag is serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computation Devices and Circuits (2014-16), served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transaction on Circuits and Systems: Part II (97-99) and the IEEE Transactions on VLSI (99-02 and 09-11), respectively.  He was the General Chair of the 2013 IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Systems, the General co-Chair of the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Low-Power Design (ISLPED), the Technical Program co-Chair of the 2010 ISLPED, and served on the technical program committee of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) from 2007-11. Since January 2013, he is the founding Director of the Systems On Nanoscale Information fabriCs (SONIC) Center, a five-year multi-university center funded by DARPA and SRC under the STARnet phase of FCRP. In 2000, Dr. Shanbhag co-founded and served as the Chief Technology Officer of Intersymbol Communications, Inc., a venture-funded fabless semiconductor start-up that provides DSP-enhanced mixed-signal ICs for electronic dispersion compensation of OC-192 optical links. In 2007, Intersymbol Communications, Inc., was acquired by Finisar Corporation, Inc..

 

演講大綱:Moore's Law has been the driving force behind the exponential growth in the semiconductor industry for the past five decades. Today, energy efficiency and reliability challenges in nanoscale CMOS (and beyond CMOS) processes threaten the continuation of Moore's Law. These challenges are further aggravated by the tremendous computational requirements of emerging cognitive and inference applications.  This talk will describe the Systems On Nanoscale Information fabriCs (SONIC) Centers innovative research agenda to address the challenge of designing energy efficient inference systems in CMOS and beyond. SONIC is research strategy is based on developing a Shannon and brain-inspired statistical foundation for reliable information processing on unreliable nanoscale fabrics. In this process, SONIC seeks to transform computing from its deterministic von Neumann roots to a statistical Shannon-inspired framework by employing information-based design metrics, stochastic nanofunctions, statistical models of computation, to realize unique non von Neumann architectures such as deep in-memory and in-sensor computing, as well as obtaining fundamental limits on energy efficiency. The talk will provide a historical perspective and demonstrate examples of Shannon-inspired designs of on-chip subsystems.  The SONIC Center is a multi-university research center funded by the US Department of Defense and the Semiconductor Research Corporation under the STARnet Program, and is a collaboration between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (lead), University of California at Berkeley, Stanford University, University of California at San Diego, University of California at Santa Barbara, University of Michigan at Ann-Arbor, Princeton University and Carnegie Mellon University.
