21st Century Computer Architecture.

CCC Blog (05/29/12) Erwin Gianchandani

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has released “21st Century Computer Architecture,” a white paper developed by members of the computer architecture research community designed to guide strategic thinking. The paper also aims to complement and synthesize other recent documents. The paper notes that information and communication technology (ICT) is transforming the world, including the fields of healthcare, education, science, commerce, government, defense, and entertainment. Evidence suggests that ICT innovation is accelerating with many compelling visions moving from science fiction toward reality, the paper adds. The combined effect of technology and architecture has provided ICT innovators with exponential performance growth at near constant cost, the paper concludes. In addition, the paper says higher performance has both made more computationally demanding applications feasible and made less demanding applications easier to develop by enabling higher-level programming abstractions. The paper also describes the current inflection point in ICT as well as the opportunities the community has in the years ahead.
