Future Architecture and System Technology for Scalable Computing




Research Tools


For future scalable computing systems, we explore not only processor, memory and IO subsystem architectures but also system hardware and software together. Especially, we aim to prototype our cool concepts with various implementation technologies and demonstrate them with commercial systems although we evaluate them with simulators. We also study various non-conventional computing paradigms, such as bio-inspired and neuromorphic computing to make the computing systems more intelligent, robust and power-efficient.
