The Future of Computing: Domain-Specific Accelerators

Wednesday, November 7, 2018
4:00pm to 5:00pm
Add to Cal
Annenberg 105
William Dally, Chief Scientist and Senior Vice President of Research, NVIDIA Corporation; Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Stanford University,

This talk will explore how the scaling of computing performance has enabled new applications and greater value from computing. Professor Dally will describe some common characteristics of domain-specific accelerators via case studies. Graphics processing units are an ideal platform on which to build domain-specific accelerators. They provide very efficient, high performance communication and memory subsystems.
