SC17 Invited Talk to Look at Computing with Physics

SC17 continues their series of Session Previews with discussion with Dr. Catherine Graves from HP Labs about her upcoming Invited Talk. “I will present our work implementing a prototype hardware accelerator dot product engine (DPE) for vector-matrix multiplication (VMM). VMM is a bottleneck for many applications, particularly in neural networks, and can be performed in the analog domain using Ohm’s law for multiplication and Kirchoff’s current law for summation.”

HP and SanDisk to Team on Memory-Driven Computing

Today HP and SanDisk announced a long-term partnership to collaborate on a new technology within the Storage Class Memory (SCM) category. The partnership will center around HP’s Memristor technology and expertise and SanDisk’s non-volatile ReRAM memory technology and manufacturing and design expertise to create new enterprise-wide solutions for Memory-driven Computing. The two companies also will partner in enhancing data center solutions with SSDs.
