Title: The Future of Compute: Reliability and Resiliency in the era of Data Transformation
Abstract: The digital transformation continues to gain momentum and is changing the shape of business, industry and consumers around the world. This transformation is characterized by continued strong demand for compute at all points in the network – at the core, the edge, and at the endpoints. Data continues to grow at an exponential rate and not only drives the compute requirements, but also requires efficient solutions for movement and storage of data that is critical for overall performance. From device to cloud, new applications and use cases are continuously emerging. This transformation demands that we adapt our thinking and move from a hardware/program centric to a data/information centric approach, and to embrace new ways to compute. To keep pace in this dynamic environment, Moore’s Law and its impact have become more relevant than ever. The continued dimensional, materials and device scaling drives a renewed focus on the fundamental reliability physics of devices and materials, while novel architecture integration schemes and large-scale system design innovation motivates a more comprehensive understanding of resiliency at all levels of the system.
