Scope: Many-core processing platforms are gaining significant interest for a wide range of applications, viz., Internet of Things (IoT), consumer electronics, single-chip cloud computers, supercomputers, defense applications etc. With billions of physical devices interconnected to each other communicating continuously, huge amount of data is expected to be transferred, stored, analyzed and computed. Data centers and servers involved are equipped with many-core processing units which analyze the data, perform arithmetic and logical operations on them, and take decisions based on the results for multiple applications. Since the applications are quite diverse, the demand on compute platform will vary significantly. As it is not feasible to have customized solutions for all different applications, a platform that can be easily modified to suit particular application demands along with optimal power efficiency and robust hardware will be highly desirable. A platform based solution that is optimal, reliable and power-aware to sustain and provide scalability to this trend is proposed in this special session.
