Mi Zhang and Ming Yan earn top ten research recognition on systems for machine learning
The Facebook Faculty Research Award on Systems for Machine Learning has been presented to two assistant professors in the Michigan State University College of Engineering.
Mi Zhang, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering and Ming Yan, assistant professor of computational mathematics, science and engineering, were recognized in February. It is MSU's first Facebook Faculty Research Award at MSU.
Zhang said Facebook selected 10 winners among 167 proposals received from 100+ universities in 26 countries.
“Our program solicits impactful solutions in the areas of developer toolkits, compilers/code generation, system architecture, memory technologies, and machine learning accelerator support,” Zhang explained. “With this award, Ming Yan and I will develop next-generation machine learning systems that enable efficient on-device distributed deep learning.”
Zhang and Yan have been invited to the Facebook Research AI Systems Faculty Summit in Fall 2020.
