Statistical Modeling for Thermal Optimization
Thermal behavior is becoming increasingly important in both mobile and data center applications. In the short run, temperature limits processor performance. In the long run, high temperatures reduce device lifetime. Our group at Georgia Tech is working with Shuvra Bhattacharyya's group at the University of Maryland to optimize thermal behavior using Markov decision processes. This talk will discuss issues in thermal modeling, statistical modeling, and examples.
