    To enable autonomous driving, a computing stack must simultaneously ensure high performance, consume minimal power, and have low thermal dissipation-all at an acceptable cost. An architecture that matches workload to computing units and implements task time-sharing can meet these requirements. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (961 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article studies the interplay between the performance, energy, and reliability (PER) of parallel-computing systems. It describes methods supporting the meaningful cross-platform analysis of this interplay. These methods lead to the PER software tool, which helps designers analyze, compare, and explore these properties. The web extra at https://youtu.be/aijVMM3Klfc illustrates the PER (perform...

  • Scaling the Computer to the Problem: Application Programming with Unlimited Memory

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):46 - 51
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (498 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Instead of scaling an application and data around the computer, programmers can use a software-defined server-an inverse hypervisor-in which multiple physical machines run a single virtual machine. Memory can be expanded as needed without modifying the application or limiting its data. View full abstract»

    Several potential avenues exist for redefining the frontiers of computing through nontraditional paradigms. Although none of these paradigms is currently competitive with CMOS-based technology, they have the potential for cheaper, faster, more robust, and more energy-efficient information processing.

    The Internet of Things (IoT) would benefit from a shaping strategy, which mobilizes global ecosystems of third-party participants to create or reshape an industry or market, bringing more value to more people. For the Internet of Things (IoT), a shaping strategy can offer a powerful alternative to trying to develop the full stack necessary to address unmet-possibly not yet identified- customer nee...

    Rather than continue the expensive and time-consuming quest for transistor replacement, the authors argue that 3D chips coupled with new computer architectures can keep Moore's law on its traditional scaling path. View full abstract»

    In assessing the validity of security claims, assurance cases are an effective approach to help refine the claims, collect detailed evidence, narrow options, and structure a convincing and valid argument to justify the resulting decision. View full abstract»
