The Core (Compiler Optimization Research) Lab is a research lab led by professor Hanjun Kim at POSTECH, Pohang University of Science and Technology. The focus of the CoreLab is the design of new compilers and computer systems to improve performance, power-efficiency and security without burdening application developers especially for distributed heterogeneous computer systems.

Projects

The Esperanto Project - A new IoT framework for manufacturers, programmers and users
The Internet of Things (IoT) enables new services such as smart home and smart healthcare by integrating diverse IoT devices. The Esperanto project proposes a novel IoT framework that allows manufacturers to easily develop various IoT devices and their APIs, programmers to easily integrate heterogeneous devices with right abstraction, and users to easily and safely control and customize the IoT devices and programs.

The Parallelization Project - New designs of domain specific accelerators and their compilers
As state-of-the-art smartphones, tablet, laptops and servers adopt multicore processors with GPUs and custom accelerators, computer systems become increasingly parallel and heterogeneous. The parallelization project investigates domain specific programs such as deep learning and scientific applications to find hardware acceleration opportunities, and proposes new hardware accelerators and their compilers.

The Security Project - Compiler and runtime systems for secure program execution
Computer systems are storehouses of personal information. As more and more personal data are stored in computer systems, and more and more computers are connected through the Internet, ensuring the confidentiality of the private data has become a critical problem. The Security project proposes a co-designed compiler and runtime system that securely protect private information in various computing environments.
