This projects aims to develop algorithms for real-time processing for analytics in digital factories. A particular use case is the design of hardware circuits, where silicon can easily be damaged during manufacturing. The production defects that arise negatively affect yield and/or quality of the devices. Uncovering these defects, and how they may be mitigated through tunable process parameters, is a demanding process, especially considering the high production rate and voluminous metrics that are collected.
The project considers the design of sketching algorithms, transprecise computing and their efficient implementation on modern high-throughput hardware such as graphics processing units.
