Time Presentation
9:50 - 10:00 Opening
10:00 - 10:50 Keynote: “Architecture Specialization for HPC to Extend Technology Scaling”
(John Shalf, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)

The tapering of traditional technology changing has substantially changed requirements for future architectures for large-scale datacenters and HPC systems. Architectural specialization is creating new datacenter requirements such as emerging accelerator technologies for machine learning workloads and rack disaggregation strategies will push the limits of current technologies. This talk provides an updated view of what a 2021-2023 system might look like and the challenges ahead, based on our most recent understanding of technology roadmaps. It also will discuss the tapering of historical improvements in lithography, and how it affects options available to continue scaling of successors to the first exascale machines. Many of these emerging hardware specializations can offer dramatic performance improvements for targeted applications, but will require a reconsideration of how to co-design hardware and algorithms for future generations of systems.
