    Talk Title: Computing Performance: N3XT 1,000x

    Abstract: 21st century information technology (IT) must process, understand, classify, and organize vast amount of data in realtime.
    21st century applications will be dominated by memory-centric computing operating on Tbytes of active data with little
    data locality. At the same time, massively redundant sensor arrays sampling the world around us will give humans the perception
    of additional "senses" blurring the boundary between biological, physical, and cyber worlds. Abundant-data processing, which
    comprises real-time big-data analytics and the processing of perceptual data in wearable devices, clearly demands computation
    efficiencies well beyond what can be achieved through business as usual.
    The key elements of a scalable, fast, and energy-efficient computation platform that may provide another 1,000x in computing
    performance (energy-execution time product) for future computing workloads are: massive on-chip memory co-located with highly
    energy-efficient computation, enabled by monolithic 3D integration using ultra-dense and fine-grained massive connectivity. There
    will be multiple layers of analog and digital memories interleaved with computing logic, sensors, and application-specific devices.
    We call this technology platform N3XT - Nanoengineered Computing Systems Technology. N3XT will support computing
    architectures that embrace sparsity, stochasticity, and device variability.
    In this talk, I will give an overview of nanoscale memory and logic technologies for implementing N3XT. I will give examples of
    nanosystems that have been built using these technologies, and provide projections on their eventual performance.

    Biography: H.-S. Philip Wong is the Willard R. and Inez Kerr Bell Professor in the School of
    Engineering. He joined Stanford University as Professor of Electrical Engineering in September,
    2004. From 1988 to 2004, he was with the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center.
    At IBM, he held various positions from Research Staff Member to Manager and Senior Manager.
    While he was Senior Manager, he had the responsibility of shaping and executing IBM's strategy
    on nanoscale science and technology as well as exploratory silicon devices and semiconductor
    Professor Wong's research aims at translating discoveries in science into practical technologies.
    His works have contributed to advancements in nanoscale science and technology, semiconductor
    technology, solid-state devices, and electronic imaging.
