“As a team, we are laying the foundation to identify challenges and recommendations on possible solutions to the industry’s current limitations defined by Moore’s Law. With the launch of the nine white papers on our new website, the IRDS roadmap sets the path for the industry benefiting from all fresh levels of processing power, energy efficiency, and technologies yet to be discovered.”
In this video from the IEEE Rebooting Computing Workshop, Dr. William Vanderlinde, Chief Scientist at Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), explains how we have already entered the era at the end of Moore’s law, including the end of Dennard Scaling. Dr. Vanderlinde also reviews the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) and IARPA’s focus in relation to the NSCI’s objectives.
There is still time to register for the 2016 Hot Interconnects Conference, which takes place August 24-26 at Huawei in Santa Clara, California. The keynote speaker this year is Kiran Makhijan, Senior Research Scientist, Network Technology Labs at the Huawei America Research Center. Her talk is entitled: Cloudcasting – Perspectives on Virtual Routing for Cloud Centric Network Architectures.
IEEE has launched something it calls Rebooting Computing (RC), “an initiative that proposes to rethink the computer through a holistic look that addresses all aspects of computing.” Through exponential performance scaling, the IEEE RC initiative aims to help the computing industry turn the corner to surpass its current setbacks and challenges—specifically regarding the deceleration of computational power and capacity.
