HiPEAC Dublin 7 Nov 2016


Nanostreams will be hosting a thematic session at HiPEAC Dublin entitled: Computational challenges for real-time streaming analytics – results from FP7 project NanoStreams  Motivation and objectives. Below is the agenda for the session, and individuals can sign up for the event at https://www.hipeac.net/csw/2016/dublin/


0930Introduction and Welcome – Streaming Analytics

Dr. Charles Gillan
1000 (Coffee 1100-1115)Designing the Nanostreams micro-server

The processor technology that underpins the NanoStreams micro-server is an amalgam of RISC cores and nano-cores, a new class of programmable, custom accelerators. Novel automatic compiler generation and parameterisation technology enables low-effort programming and integration of nano-cores into application-specific, many-core accelerators. This heterogeneous micro-server environment delivers a scale-out architecture which achieves high energy-efficiency.

1400The software stack

The software stack of the NanoStreams micro-server is rooted in domain-specific languages for analytical queries, which the project implements with a streaming dataflow execution model. The language runtime system uses real-time scheduling, performance isolation techniques and region-based locality management to minimise latency on the transactional path and maximise throughput on the analytical path.

1500ICU Use Case

We will present the VILI system developed during the project and operational for several months in a live hospital setting. Recent analysis on the performance and power consumption of freely available databases will be presented in relation to their use in the system and more widely for IoT applications.
