Peng Jiang earns prestigious NSF CAREER award

Thursday, February 8, 2024
The project will develop a suite of compiler and runtime tools to simplify the implementation of sampling-based algorithms and improve their performance in computing and big data applications while enhancing their capacity to solve real-world problems at a large scale. In doing so, the project will provide solutions to limitations of sampling-based hardware without sacrificing the accuracy and efficiency of sampling strategies.
