It's Like Deja-Vu All over Again... Again

Dr. José L. Muñoz

Speaker: Dr. José L. Muñoz Deputy Director, National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI) and NSF/ICI senior science advisor, USA

Abstract:

Examine the challenges of using programmable gates to do reconfigurable computing--an attractive approach to meet the high-speed demands that can typically be met only by hardware, and at the same time to satisfy the need for adapting to ever changing demands typically satisfied by software. Yet the many challenges brought about by trying to satisfy these two masters are still largely unmet. What were some of the original goals of reconfigurable computing? What approaches were going to be followed to meet those goals? How successful were they? Are the same goals and opportunities applicable today? How have things changed (or have they)? What have we learned that could be applied to other accelerator approaches such as GPUs?
