Abstract:
There is no free lunch anymore! With the stagnation of operation frequencies in microprocessors, your programs will not get sped-up if you wait for the next generation chip. Of course, that chip will give you more cores. But who wants to buy it if there is no benefit to the applications? The fate of electronic and computer industry is at stake if we do not take actions.
In this talk, I will review the challenges we are facing in this revolution, how we may (or may not) be able to win the war, and some possible outcomes and opportunities for us as programmers *and* hardware designers. From a remote echo of the voice by the legendary Dijkstra some 36 years ago, we are urged to "respect the intrinsic limitations of the human mind and approach the task as *doubly* humble programmers."
