NSF CAREER Award
Professor Florin Balasa has received the NSF CAREER Award: Data-flow Analysis in the Memory Management of Real-Time Multimedia Processing Systems.This research focuses on devising novel techniques based on data-flow analysis in the memory management of real-time multidimensional signal processing. Data-flow analysis is the steering exploration mechanism along this project, allowing more exploration freedom than the traditional scheduling -based investigation, since the memory management tasks usually need only relative (rather than exact) lifetime information. Moreover, data-flow analysis enables the study of memory management tasks at the desired level of granularity -- between whole array and the scalar level -- trading-off computational effort and solution optimality.
