Benchmarking Machine Learning Workloads on Emerging Hardware

Tom St John · Murali Emani

Mission Ballroom B4

Thu 1 Sep, 8 a.m. PDT

With evolving system architectures, hardware and software stack, diverse machine learning workloads, and data, it is important to understand how these components interact with each other. Well-defined benchmarking procedures help evaluate and reason the performance gains with ML workload to system mapping.

Key problems that we seek to address are: (i) which representative ML benchmarks cater to workloads seen in industry, national labs, and interdisciplinary sciences; (ii) how to characterize the ML workloads based on their interaction with hardware; (iii) what novel aspects of hardware, such as heterogeneity in compute, memory, and bandwidth, will drive their adoption; (iv) performance modeling and projections to next-generation hardware.

The workshop will invite experts in these research areas to present recent work and potential directions to pursue. Accepted papers from a rigorous evaluation process will present state-of-the-art research efforts. We have also secured funding from MLCommonsTM to provide a best paper award for an outstanding submission. A panel discussion will foster an interactive platform for discussion between speakers and the audience.
