Recipients for this internship must be enrolled at Stanford the quarter following the completion of the project for which they received funding. Thus, students who wish to pursue a fellowship the summer after their senior year may do so, but only if they apply for and receive permission from the University Registrar to enroll for a “graduation quarter” for the summer quarter. More information on graduation quarters can be found here.

This internship aims to explore the applicability of explainable AI techniques in system microarchitecture design to help understand the impact of known architecture parameters on key performance indicators (KPIs), such as the response time and power consumption.
