Brief Introduction

We investigate Automated Dynamic Hardware Acceleration for Compute-Intensive Applications. Imagine your PC would change it's circuits to match the programs you are running, like a liquid adapting to it's container.

This project is funded by UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (grant number EP/C544706/1).
