The performance gap between GPUs and CPUs has been widening over years as the hardware improves. Existing GPU databases demonstrate good performance, but suffer from limited GPU memory capacity and PCIe bandwidth, thereby failing to scale to large datasets. We conduct a series of projects to address these challenges, paving the way for wider GPU database adoption.

3D content is key in several domains, such as VR/AR, architecture, film, gaming, and robotics, and lies in the heart of the metaverse applications. While generative AI has achieved significant success in language, image, and video, its application in 3D content encounters fundamental challenges in the scarcity of 3D training data and increased complexities inherent in 3D.

DNA is life’s instruction manual, but mathematically, DNA is simply a string over an alphabet of four letters. DNA can now easily be read into a computer, and the associated string-processing algorithms are being leveraged by biologists for exciting discoveries. However, this has created a flood of data in the petabytes, requiring modern and faster tools.

Reasoning about the use of external resources is an important aspect of many practical applications. Effect systems enable tracking such information in types, but at the cost of complicating signatures of common functions. Capabilities coupled with escape analysis offer safety and natural signatures, but are often overly coarse grained and restrictive.
