“Software behaving badly: Machine learning could resolve issues raised by multicore processors”

Widespread press coverage of research by UW CSE professors Luis Ceze, Dan Grossman, and Mark Oskin and UW CSE graduate students Owen Anderson, Tom Bergan, Joseph Devietti, Brandon Lucia and Nick Hunt.

“Ceze and his colleagues … have developed a way to get modern, multiple-processor computers to behave in predictable ways, by automatically parceling sets of commands and assigning them to specific places.  Ceze and several colleagues from the university’s Safe MultiProcessing Architectures (SAMPA) group are presenting their proposed fix for this parallel processing problem next week at the International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems in Pittsburgh.”
