Congratulations to André Seznec who receives this new award, proof of his expertise in the field of microprocessor architecture.
André Seznec - Inria researcher, formerly head of the Architecture department at IRISA and member of the PACAP team - has been conducting research on microprocessor architecture for 40 years. He designed and built a first prototype of a matrix computation gas pedal. Then, he developed cache memory architectures (the part of memory that temporarily stores data to speed up a computer's computations) and branch prediction mechanisms (the features that predict the outcome of a branch and thus optimize pipeline usage). His research work has made him a key international reference thanks to his development suggestions to the main microprocessor manufacturers.
André Séznec is available since the beginning of 2021, and is currently working for Intel.
