CakeML is a new ML dialect aimed at supporting formally verified programs.
The CakeML project has several aspects including formal semantics and
metatheory, a verified compiler, a formal connection between its semantics and
higher-order logic (in the HOL4 interactive theorem prover), and example
verified applications written in CakeML and HOL4. The project is an active
collaboration between Ramana Kumar at NICTA, Magnus Myreen at
Chalmers, Michael Norrish at NICTA, Yong Kiam Tan at (A*STAR,
Singapore), and myself.

In this talk, I will explain the architecture of CakeML's verified
compiler, focussing
on a new optimising backend that we are currently developing.

CakeML's web site is, and development is hosted on GitHub at
