AbstractMore energy-efficient computing requires software that consumes less power while delivering good performance. Such software requires optimizing compilers able to generate binary code adapted to the target machine and efficient in terms of time and energy. The compiler must therefore have a cost model giving an objective function that drives the search for an optimum. The objective of this thesis is to design such a cost model coupling time and energy, and to integrate it to the compiler optimization passes.
ProfileGood knowledge in compilers, computer architecture, and machine learning. The candidate must hold an engineering degree or a master of science. Proficiency in english, scientific writing in particular, is required.
