Abstract:Detail

In this talk, I will introduce some of my previous work including my Ph.D. thesis, new OS features and middleware to make use of emerging hardware technologies. Emerging hardware devices/features (e.g., FPGA/ASICs, non-volatile memories, Intel SGX) have been widely studied due to strong demands on performance improvement, energy efficiency, and data protection of computer systems. However, due to a lack of system software support, existing computer systems cannot fully utilize these new devices. I have proposed new operating system functions and middleware, which are useful to improve the performance/usability of the devices or analyze an application behavior with them.
