Introduction to multiprocessor architecture

Multiprocessors are a core component in all types of computing infrastructure, from phones to datacenters. This course will build on the prerequisites of processor design and concurrency to introduce the essential technologies required to combine multiple processing elements into a single computer.

Advanced multiprocessor architecture

Multiprocessors are now the defacto building blocks for all computer systems. This course will build upon the basic concepts offered in Computer Architecture I to cover the architecture and organization of modern multiprocessors from mobile and embedded platforms to servers, data centers and cloud computing platforms.

Topics in Machine Learning Systems

This course will cover the latest technologies, platforms and research contributions in the area of machine learning systems. The students will read, review and present papers from recent venues across the systems for ML spectrum.

Topics on Datacenter Design

Modern datacenters with thousands of servers and multi-megawatt power budgets form the backbone of our digital universe. ln this course, we will survey a broad and comprehensive spectrum of datacenter design topics from workloads, to server architecture and infrastructure.
