    Nonvolatile memories are being used for quite long time in computer systems. So far, they successfully added another level of abstraction to the current memory hierarchy. The introduction of byte addressable nonvolatile ...
  • On the nature of computing 

    Sifakis, Joseph (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Computing is a domain of knowledge. Knowledge is information that embedded into the right network of conceptual interrelations can be used to understand a subject or solve a problem. According to this definition, Physics, ...
  • Rigorous system design 

    Sifakis, Joseph (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Today, the development costs of high confidence systems explode with their size. We are far away from the solution of the so-called, software crisis. In fact, the latter hides another much bigger: the system crisis. n ...
  • Towards convection-resolution climate modeling 

    Schär, Christoph (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Currently comprehensive efforts are underway to refine the horizontal resolution of global and regional climate models to O (1 km), with the intent to represent convective clouds explicitly rather than using semi-empirical ...
  • Resilience design patterns: a structured approach to resilience at extreme scale 

    Hukerikar, Saurabh (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Reliability is a serious concern for future extreme-scale high-performance computing (HPC) systems. Projections based on the current generation of HPC systems and technology roadmaps suggest the prevalence of very high ...
  • Big data applications on flash storage with accelerators 

    Arvind (2017-09-10)
    Accés obert
    Fast content-based searches and complex analytics of the vast amount of data collected via social media, cell phones, ubiquitous smart sensors, and satellites is likely to be the biggest economic driver for the IT industry ...

    Zengxiang Li, Shawn (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In the Big Data era, graph processing has been widely used to represent complex system structure, capture data dependency and uncover relationship insights. Due to the ever-growing graph scale and algorithm complexity, ...
  • Artificial intelligence and big data management: the dynamic duo for moving forward data centric sciences 

    Vargas Solar, Genoveva (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    After vivid discussions led by the emergence of the buzzword “Big Data”, it seems that industry and academia have reached an objective understanding about data properties (volume, velocity, variety, veracity and value), ...
  • Processor paradigms: evolution or disruption 

    Patt, Yale (2017-09-10)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    At HPCA in February, a workshop titled Pioneering Processor Paradigms was held (first one), focused on taking a look at key paradigms of the past to see what we could learn from them. They asked me to give the keynote. ...
