About ADA

As the computing industry struggles to maintain its historically rapid pace of innovation, the ADA Center, based at the University of Michigan, aims to streamline and democratize the design and manufacturing of next-generation computing systems.

The Applications Driving Architectures Center (ADA) is developing a transformative, "plug-and-play" ecosystem to encourage a flood of fresh ideas in computing frontiers such as autonomous control, robotics and machine-learning.

Today, analysts worry that the industry is stagnating, caught between physical limits to the size of silicon transistors and the skyrocketing costs and complexity of system design.

According to Center Director Valeria Bertacco,"The electronic industry is facing many challenges going forward, and we stand a much better chance of solving these problems if we can make hardware design more accessible to a large pool of talent. We want to make it possible for anyone with motivation and a good idea to build novel high-performance computing systems."

The center is a five-year project that includes researchers from several leading universities.
