"Deep Learning for Compilers" - Hugh Leather

Posted by Compsoc on Sat, 27-03-2021

Hugh will discuss recent advances in using deep learning to solve compiler issues: learning heuristics and testing compiler correctness.

Writing optimising compilers is difficult. The range of programs that may be presented to the compiler is huge and the system on which they run are complex, heterogeneous, non-deterministic, and constantly changing. Machine learning has been shown to make writing compiler heuristics easier, but many issues remain.

Hugh Leather:
Hugh was a reader (associate professor) at the University of Edinburgh and is now working with Facebook as an Artificial Intelligence Researcher. His research involves all elements of compilers and operating systems, usually targeting performance and energy optimisation, often with a focus on using machine learning for those tasks. After completing his PhD, at Edinburgh University, he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Engineering. Before his most recent roles, he was an engineer at Microsoft and architect and team leader at Trilogy, delivering multi-million dollar projects to Fortune 500 companies.
