Deep Learning Accelerators

short biography:

I am a catalyst of change and a technical leader in systems software. I am currently a distinguished technologist at Hewlett Packard Labs, Palo Alto, CA (1998-). I worked at the OSF Research Institute in Cambridge, MA (1994-1998) and at the Mihajlo Pupin Institute in Belgrade, Serbia (1983-1991). I received my PhD from University of Kaiserslautern, Germany (1993); and my MSc/BSc from Belgrade University, Serbia (1986/1983). I was a technical director of the Open Cirrus Cloud Computing Testbed (2007-2011), which had academic and industrial sites in the US, Europe, and Asia. I have published over 180 papers and 2 books; I have 37 granted patents and over 120 patent applications. I am an IEEE Fellow (2010), ACM Distinguished Engineer (2008), and USENIX member.

I was president of the IEEE Computer Society (2014) and I served on the IEEE Board in 2017-2018. I started IEEE Computing Now and became its inaugural Editor-in-Chief, innovating content delivery through mashups. I started three conferences (IEEE ASAP; ACM/USENIX WIESS; IEEE Infrastructure). I have been on many conference program committees and journal editorial boards. I spearheaded the Computer Society Report 2022, which was a technical underpinning for 2 Computer Society strategic plans. I co-invented Special Technical Communities, innovating organization of IEEE-CS members and contributors. I co-chaired the IEEE Confluence report (2017), an industry trend paper on Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence. I was Chair of the IEEE Industry Engagement Ad Hoc Committee (2015-2017), which culminated in a Committee of IEEE, of which I am now the Past Chair and serving a 2-year term (2019-2020).


The Futur of Computer Technologies


short biography:

Hamdioui is currently Chair Professor on Dependable and Emerging Computer Technologies and Head of the Quantum and Computer Engineering department as well as Head of the Computer Engineering Laboratory (CE-Lab) of the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. He received the MSEE and PhD degrees (both with honors) from TUDelft. Prior to joining TUDelft as a professor, Hamdioui spent about seven years within industry including Microprocessor Products Group at Intel Corporation (Califorina, USA), IP and Yield Group at Philips Semiconductors R&D (Crolles, France) and DSP design group at Philips/ NXP Semiconductors (Nijmegen, The Netherlands). His research focuses on two domains: Dependable CMOS nano-computing (including Reliability, Testability, Hardware Security) and emerging technologies and computing paradigms (including 3D stacked ICs, memristors for logic and storage, in-memory-computing for big-data applications).



Deep Neural Networks and Cryptography


short biography:

Leonel Sousa received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa (UL), Lisbon, Portugal, in 1996, where he is Professor and ECE Department Chair. He is also President of R&D Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores (INESC-ID). His research interests include parallel computing, VLSI and computer architectures and computer arithmetic. He has contributed to more than 200 papers in journals and international conferences, for which he got several awards, including: DASIP’13 Best Paper Award, SAMOS’11 ’Stamatis Vassiliadis’ Best Paper Award, DASIP’10 Best Poster Award, and the Honorable Mention Award UTL/Santander Totta for the quality of the publications in 2009. He has contributed to the organization of several international conferences, namely as program chair and as general and topic chair, and has given keynotes in some of them. He has edited four special issues of international journals, and he is currently Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, IEEE Access, Springer JRTIP and IET Electronics Letters, and Editor-in-Chief of the Eurasip JES. He is Fellow of the IET, Distinguished Member of ACM and Senior Member of IEEE.
