Hi Everyone,

This Thursday at NARC, Armin Alaghi (of UW CSE) will be talking about
signal processing and stochastic computing - all are welcome to attend!

1:30 - 2:30pm on Thursday February 23, 2017
Lewis 208 -- Wan Conference Room

Title: Signal Processing via Stochastic Computing

Abstract:
Stochastic computing is a (re-)emerging computation technique which
processes data in the form of bit-streams that denote probabilities. It can
implement complex operations by means of simple logic circuits. This talk
covers several theoretical topics of stochastic computing ranging from
circuit synthesis to correlation and number generation. First, a method of
synthesizing stochastic circuits based on spectral transforms is
demonstrated. The role of correlation is discussed next, along with methods
of avoiding or exploiting it. Finally, the problem of stochastic number
generation, and its relation to Monte Carlo methods is presented.

Bio:
Armin Alaghi is a Research Associate in the Computer Science and
Engineering Department at the University of Washington. He received his PhD
degree in computer science and engineering from the University of Michigan
(2015). Before joining Michigan in 2009, he was at the University of Tehran
where he got his Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and his
Master's degree in computer architecture. Armin has received several awards
and fellowships for his PhD research. His research interests include
low-power system design, VLSI circuits, and computer architecture.
