The Center for Domain-Specific Computing

The current Center for Domain-Specific Computing (CDSC) is a collaboration between UCLA, Rice University, Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), and Intel Research. The scope of its efforts includes leveraging the research results from our past work, but significantly expanding and extending the research along the following research areas: 1. Accelerator-centric architectures (ACAs) in which novel methodologies and algorithms to automatically extract accelerator building blocks (ABBs) in new application domains 2. Compilation and runtime support for ACAs The work continues to address key issues within medical image processing, developing and implementing the idea of "adaptive compressive sensing" for image re-construction and near-real time image processing. This research also expands its application domain scope to personalized cancer treatment.
