WP3/1: Board Design Documentation and Working Hardware

  • High performance energy measurement - arriving one month early
  • Board design is open source.
  • Using 2 interns instead of 1 post doc - this is no problem, same headings on finance sheet.

WP1/2 & WP1/1: Design of compiler integration, etc.

  • Iterative design with external consultation.
  • Thoughts on design to be discussed at next meeting.
  • Milestone 1/1 follows on from 1/2.

Exploitation Plan

  • Good to be taken to market from start.
  • From University of Bristol perspective boosts academic and industry profiles.

Commercial exploitation

  • This needs to be kept separate from the main project.

Risk Register

Need to add:

  1. Size of training set
  2. Relevance of training set - making sure we avoid too narrow a training set to ensure relevance when compiled with general code.

GCC Cauldron

  • Counts as conference, not press release.
  • Refer to as Technology Strategy Board not TSB.
  • Describe as research council for industry.
