Beyond Exascale: Emerging Devices and Architectures for Computing


The Supercomputing 2016 Conference (SC16) was held in Salt Lake City, UT, Nov. 13-18, 2017.
One of the invited talks was by Prof. Thomas Theis of Columbia University. He showed that while existing device technologies may be sufficient to achieve exascale performance, further increases in performance will require new devices and architectures. These may include low-energy approaches such as tunneling FETs, spintronic devices, and neural networks.

Dr. Theis also co-authored an article on a similar topic in the latest issue of Computing in Science and Engineering, available here.

Videos of the other invited talks from SC16 are available here.
