Workshop: MCHPC’19 Keynote Talk: Prospects for Memory
Abstract: The outlook for memory components and systems is at the all-time height of excitement. This talk examines the path we have traversed and the likely future directions we must pursue. We will examine scaling across many parameters, "walls" of all sorts concluding with the one that has emerged as the true wall, the dynamics of heterogeneity in systems and their comprising memories, the need for abstraction (still unsatisfied), options available for processing in or nearer to memory, and the imperative technology redirection that is required to make significant strides forward. Time permitting, a lively question and answer period is anticipated.
