This issue of the IBM Journal of Research and Development focuses on exploratory systems. As the name suggests, exploratory systems cover a wide range of cutting-edge technologies that will make future systems better: faster, lower-power, more reliable, more expandable, easier to use, easier to design. The systems in question span a wide range from small embedded devices such as those found in cell phones, washing machines, and animal-tracking collars to installations with thousands of processors and petabytes of storage for handling large databases or for large-scale simulation.
