The changing culture of computer science: an interview with Marianne Winslett, part 2

November 2017
Interviewed by Richard T. Snodgrass

Clock speeds of computing chips have leveled off dramatically since 2005, and putting more cores in systems on a chip (SoC) has produced more heat, adding a new ceiling to further advances. Mike Frank and Art Scott represent a new vanguard of this leap-forward. Is the future in reversible, adiabatic computing and simpler architectures using posit arithmetic?
