Utah Arch Research Group
The Utah Arch research group is involved in Computer Architecture and VLSI Research at the School of Computing, University of Utah. Led by Dr. Rajeev Balasubramonian, Dr. Mahdi Nazm Bojnordi, and Dr. Erik Brunvand, the group explores many aspects of modern and future computing systems. The group's current research focuses on memory systems, machine learning accelerators, neuromorphic architectures, hardware ray-tracing, and memory security.
The Memristive Boltzmann Machine is an IEEE Micro Top Pick.
The ISAAC deep neural network accelerator is a Top Picks Honorable Mention.
Mahdi Nazm Bojnordi joins the School of Computing faculty at Utah in Fall 2016.
