The future of computer architectures

This is a lecture given by John Hennessy and David Patterson at the ACM Turing Award. They offer their vision of addressing Moore’s law slowdown via heterogeneous computer architectures and hardware/software codesign.

Quantum computers are on the same schedule as fusion.

All exponentials eventually end.

‒ Gordon Moore

Titled “A New Golden Age for Computer Architecture: Domain-Specific Hardware/Software Co-Design, Enhanced Security, Open Instruction Sets, and Agile Chip Development,” the talk will cover recent developments and future directions in computer architecture.

Hennessy and Patterson were recognized with the Turing Award for “pioneering a systematic, quantitative approach to the design and evaluation of computer architectures with enduring impact on the microprocessor industry.”
