Selecting optimization passes for given application is very important but non-trivial problem because of the huge size of the compiler transformation space (incl. pass ordering). While the existing heuristics can provide high-performance code for certain applications, they cannot easily benefit a wide range of application codes. The goal of the project is to learn the interplay between LLVM transformation passes and code structures, then improve the existing heuristics (or replace the heuristics with machine learning-based models) so that the LLVM compiler can provide a superior order of the passes customized per application.
