Abstract:
HPC technological developments in several areas have the potential to impact exascale systems in a very disruptive way. These "weapons" for building exascale systems could lead to viable systems in the 2015-2020 timeframe. In this panel session, we survey four technology areas and explore their potential disruptive impacts: quantum computing; flash storage; cheap and low power optical communications; 3D chip stacking.
