Specializing Computing Systems for Graph Algorithms

Speaker:   Xuhao Chen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
When:   March 11, 2022, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Where:   Zoom


Numerous AI applications in social networks, e-commerce, biomedicine and security, are driven by graph algorithms. The graph data is massive and sparse, which poses great challenges in computing system design. In this talk, I will explore system design tradeoffs for an important class of graph algorithms — graph mining. I will describe experiences creating abstractions, optimization techniques and automation methodologies for graph mining, across different layers of the system stack, including both software and hardware. As I will demonstrate, cross-layer system design can fully unlock the potential of graph computing, and should be used for enabling pervasive AI.
