Caiwen Ding is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He received his Ph.D. degree from Northeastern University (NEU), Boston in 2019, supervised by Prof. Yanzhi Wang. His interests include machine learning systems; computer architecture and heterogeneous computing (FPGAs/GPUs); computer vision, natural language processing; non-von Neumann computing and neuromorphic computing; privacy-preserving machine learning.
His work has been frequently published in high-impact conferences (e.g., DAC, ICCAD, ASPLOS, ISCA, MICRO, HPCA, Oakland, SC, FPGA, MLSys, ICML, CVPR, AAAI, ACL, EMNLP, IJCAI, ICRA, DATE). His work on Block-Circulant Matrix-based Smartphone Acceleration received the Best Paper Award Nomination at DATE 2018; his work on ReRAM-based In-Memory Computing for DNN Acceleration received the Best Paper Award Nomination at DATE 2021. He received the Best Paper Award at the 2023 AAAI DCAA workshop. His team won first place in accuracy and fourth place overall at the 2022 ACM/IEEE TinyML Design Contest at ICCAD.
