BIDS Faculty Affiliate Alvin Cheung is among the 18 winners of Intel's 2020 Outstanding Research Awards, which recognize exceptional contributions made through Intel-sponsored university research. Cheung and fellow EECS Assistant Professor Jonathan Ragan-Kelley are developing ARION, a system for compiling programs onto heterogeneous platforms. Their team will use verified lifting, which rewrites legacy code into a clean specification, stripping away optimizations that target legacy architectures. This spec, written in a DSL, can then be compiled to new platforms, sometimes resulting in substantially increased code performance speeds.
