ADA Hosts Third Student Hackathon!

University of Washington PI Zachary Tatlock and his team led the effort this year, in collaboration with CRISP PI Luis Ceze and his students. The hackathon was centered on Domain Specific Languages and compilers. The hackathon framework of choice for this space was the TVM platform based on TVM. The goal was to work on open areas of the TVM stack. Students worked on seven different tasks, including improving benchmarking and profiling, creating datatypes, fuzzing (program testing), improving gradient coverage, improving training, uTVM (Minimize device communication overhead), TVM to FPCore Backend to run analysis. Overall, students reported that they found that working with their teams was effective and that the tasks were appropriately challenging.
