Data Centric Computer Architecture, An Update
Following a quick recap of the principles of data centric architecture, this talk delves deeper into a blueprint for application acceleration. An update on technology roadmap of integration of logic and memory from my perspective will be followed by new flavors of data-centric design for NAND Flash memory. I will close by discussing enabling technologies in systems and software.
