|The computer industry is in the midst of a fundamental shift brought on by the coming end of Moore’s Law scaling and the emergence of big data. As the amount and type of data increases due to the proliferation of cyber-physical systems, IoT and automation, the traditional levers used to increase performance in order to keep up with the data deluge are becoming less and less impactful. As such, new architectures are beginning to emerge that are designed to accommodate big data applications by placing data, rather than compute, at the center of the architecture. This talk will introduce one such architecture, called Memory-Driven Computing (MDC). Key elements of the architecture including the fabric, photonic interconnect and persistent memory will be highlighted as will their often unique implications on thermal management. A prototype of the MDC architecture, called the Machine, will be showcased with a discussion of the results achieved to date and implications for future systems and applications.|
