Outline

An efficient graph processing engine at edge devices is a key to realize a concept of Society 5.0 where various information obtained in the physical world is processed and optimized in a cyber world, and then feedback to the physical world is provided in realtime. In this research, we develop a highly efficient edge graph processing framework including a low-power and low-latency accelerator architecture, system LSI design, and its software environment through co-design with real graph applications. We also consider cooperation between graph processing and AI/annealing computation in the framework.

Outline

Through inter-disciplinary collaboration among architecture, machine learning, discrete algorithm, and mathematical science, this project targets creating a new science-technology paradigm for realizing highly secure, dependable, and energy efficient “intelligent computing” that sustains Society 5.0 and beyond. Identifying energy minimization behind machine learning and combinatory optimization problems as a guiding principle, also spatio-temporal computing as an optimal architecture for drastically changing computation workloads, the project will establish a multi-purpose, self-learnable, spatio-temporal energy minimization HW/SW platform. Mathematical science and computer science will together ground break a new research domain.
