The talk will be based on my recent essay of the same name (sequel to ”The Free Lunch Is Over”) concerning the turn to mainstream heterogeneous distributed computing and the end of Moore’s Law, with ample time for Q&A and discussion.
Here are the coordinates:
When: Tuesday, March 20 at 1:00 – 3:00 P.M.
Where: Boulevard Brewery, 2501 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, MO, USA 64108
Abstract: In the twilight of Moore’s Law, the transitions to multicore processors, GPU computing, and HaaS cloud computing are not separate trends, but aspects of a single trend – mainstream computers from desktops to ‘smartphones’ are being permanently transformed into heterogeneous supercomputer clusters. Henceforth, a single compute-intensive application will need to harness different kinds of cores, in immense numbers, to get its job done. – The free lunch is over. Now welcome to the hardware jungle.
This is a free lecture; all are invited, but you should register to make sure you’ll have a seat. Note that this talk is live only and is not being recorded or webcast.
I look forward to meeting many of you there in person.
