Future Technologies

The Future Technologies group performs basic research in core technologies for future generations of high-end computing architectures, including experimental computing systems. Using measurement, modeling, and simulation, we investigate these technologies with the goal of improving the performance, efficiency, reliability, and usability of these architectures for our sponsors. Accordingly, we develop new algorithms and software systems to effectively exploit the specific benefits of each technology.

See our group website for more details on these topics:
