Talk Abstract: In this talk I will describe an MSR project designed to accelerate datacenter services using specialized logic. The intent is to create a generic platform that can specialize large-scale services into a combination of software and custom hardware. It is my belief that this is the future for computing, that in a decade, we will be compiling demanding applications into a combination of hardware and software.
