SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT -- ECE GRADUATE SEMINAR
Thursday, October 20, 2016
SPEAKER: Kimberly Keeton, Distinguished Technologist, Hewlett Packard Labs
TITLE: Memory-Driven Computing
The Machine is a memory-driven architecture from Hewlett Packard Labs that brings together byte-addressable non-volatile memory, photonic interconnects, and specialized SoCs in a "shared something" model, a middle ground between shared everything scale-up systems and shared nothing scale-out systems. As part of this program, we're building hardware, new OS features, new data stores, new analytics platforms, and new programming models. This talk will discuss the technologies that comprise The Machine and their implications for systems software and application programs, as well as describe the work we're doing at HPE to address some of these challenges and opportunities.
