The Era of Accelerators: Are they Really the Solution for Post-Moore?

Speaker:  Mohamed Zahran – New York, NY, United States
Topic(s):  Applied Computing


With the stagnation of Dennard scaling and the severe technical and economic problems Moore’s law is facing, we need to be prepared for the post-Moore era. The main solution, so far, is to use accelerators such as GPUs, TPUs, FPGAs, DSPs, neuromorphic chips, etc. Each one of those chips excels in one or few types of applications and achieves excellent performance per watt compared to a traditional multicore. But, are accelerators the final word in post-Moore? What are the challenges we may face in the near future with accelerators? How can we deal with that in the short-term? and in the long-term?
