As per your suggestion, I read the description of these two projects:
Advanced Heuristics for Ordering Compiler Optimization Passes
Machine learning and compiler optimizations: using inter-procedural
analysis to select optimizations
and they are amazing! Indeed, they are very close to my interest in
autotuning. I didn't see them on the list before.
If I choose to focus on these projects, where should I start?
