Title: Future Computing Architectures

Brief abstract: This talk will cover some key platform design issues that we consider critical to solve in modern and future computing systems. Our focus will be on the issues related to the memory system and data access, a critical bottlenecks in the high-performance computing platforms of today. Three key issues we will discuss are: 1) designing fundamentally secure/reliable/safe architectures, 2) enabling data-centric and hence fundamentally energy-efficient architectures, and 3) reducing both latency and energy consumption by tackling the fixed-latency/energy mindset. We will focus on both problems and new solution directions.

Bio: Onur Mutlu is a Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. He is also a faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University, where he previously held the William D. and Nancy W. Strecker Early Career Professorship. His current broader research interests are in computer architecture, systems, and bioinformatics. He is especially interested in interactions across domains and between applications, system software, compilers, and microarchitecture, with a major current focus on memory and storage systems. He obtained his PhD and MS in ECE from the University of Texas at Austin and BS degrees in Computer Engineering and Psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His industrial experience spans starting the Computer Architecture Group at Microsoft Research (2006-2009), and various product and research positions at Intel Corporation, Advanced Micro Devices, VMware, and Google. He received the inaugural IEEE Computer Society Young Computer Architect Award, the inaugural Intel Early Career Faculty Award, faculty partnership awards from various companies, and a healthy number of best paper or "Top Pick" paper recognitions at various computer systems and architecture venues. His computer architecture course lectures and materials are freely available on YouTube, and his research group makes software artifacts freely available online.
