Podcast/Video Interviews by Stephen Ibaraki

A Chat with Mohamed M. Sabry Aly: Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore about system-level design and optimization of computing systems enabled by emerging technologies

This week, Stephen Ibaraki has an exclusive interview with Mohamed M. Sabry Aly.

Dr. Mohamed M. Sabry AlyMohamed M. Sabry Aly is an Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), in 2013. He was a postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford University from 2014 till 2017. His current research interests include system-level design and optimization of computing systems enabled by emerging technologies, with particular emphasis on computing systems for artificial intelligence. His work on system-level analysis on data-centric emerging systems has led to a US$75M DARPA program (Electronic Resurgence Initiative).

He is a currently the programme manager of the Singapore flagship AME programmatic project (Hardware Software Co-optimization for Deep Learning)—a S$25M research program aiming to fabricate the world’s first 3D hardware platform for AI with new device technologies. He has more than 60 peer-reviewed research articles in top tier journals and conference proceedings, including proceedings of the IEEE (2019), Computer magazine (2015), International solid-state circuits conference (2019), design automation and test in Europe (2015, 2014), conference on computer vision and pattern recognition (2019). He is an active close collaborator with Stanford University and a founding member of the N3XT project at Stanford University. He is also a close collaborator with TSMC (Taiwan Semiconducting Manufacturing Company) on system-level analysis of emerging computing systems

Dr. Aly was the recipient of the Swiss National Science Foundation Early Post-Doctoral Mobility Fellowship in 2013.
