Abstract: 

Phenomenal change is coming to computing architecture.  Persistence is moving closer to the processor, eventually to find its way into caches and registers.  Memory interfaces are being completely reconsidered in order to remove one of the biggest bottlenecks in the system, while cutting energy consumption.  In certain cases the processor is being moved into the memory chip.  Meanwhile new and completely different algorithms, like the broad adoption of AI, are being adopted and these will change the entire way that computers are being used and configured.  This is causing pioneers to create new approaches that combine budding emerging memory technologies like MRAM, ReRAM, and FRAM with in-memory computing algorithms to solve problems in ways never before thought possible.  This session will lay out the path of these changes and will detail the kind of work that must be done in both hardware and software to support these changes.
