In this video from the Nvidia Theater at SC14, Bill Dally presents: Nvidia’s Path to Exascale.

Future computers of all sizes from cell phones to supercomputers share challenges of power and programmability to realize their potential. The end of Dennard scaling has made all computing power limited, so that performance is determined by energy efficiency. With improvements in process technology offering little increase in efficiency innovations in architecture and circuits are required to maintain the expected performance scaling. The large scale parallelism and deep storage hierarchy of future machines poses programming challenges. Future programming systems must allow the programmer to express their code in a high-level, target-independent manner and optimize the target-dependent decisions of mapping available parallelism in time and space. This talk will discuss these challenges in more detail and introduce some of the technologies being developed to address them.”
