Recent generations of microprocessors have critical overheating issues, requiring large parts of the circuits to be turned off when not in use, hence “Dark Silicon”. Careful design enables maximizing system performance under these constraints.
Recent developments in superconducting quantum computers by Google, D-Wave Systems, and IBM are discussed.
Reports by Technology Working Groups will be integrated into new technology roadmap to be issued by the end of 2017.
Contributions include both continued evolution and disruptive alternative technologies.
Stanford University, Feb. 7-8, 2017. Videos and slides of most keynote talks are available here.
University of Michigan researchers have developed ultra-small, ultra-low power (< 1mW) computers for application to mobile Internet of Things. The latest version incorporates neural networks with deep learning.
HiPEAC Vision Report advocates reinvention of computing, and predicts “cyber-physical entanglement of the physical and virtual worlds”.
Special issue reviews the past and includes a set of Outlook articles on the Future of Computing.
