CH MLIR: A Compiler Infrastructure for the End of Moore’s Law

(Submitted on 25 Feb 2020)

Abstract: This work presents MLIR, a novel approach to building reusable and extensible
compiler infrastructure. MLIR aims to address software fragmentation, improve
compilation for heterogeneous hardware, significantly reduce the cost of
building domain specific compilers, and aid in connecting existing compilers
together. MLIR facilitates the design and implementation of code generators,
translators and optimizers at different levels of abstraction and also across
application domains, hardware targets and execution environments. The
contribution of this work includes (1) discussion of MLIR as a research
artifact, built for extension and evolution, and identifying the challenges and
opportunities posed by this novel design point in design, semantics,
optimization specification, system, and engineering. (2) evaluation of MLIR as
a generalized infrastructure that reduces the cost of building
compilers-describing diverse use-cases to show research and educational
opportunities for future programming languages, compilers, execution
environments, and computer architecture. The paper also presents the rationale
for MLIR, its original design principles, structures and semantics.
