Big Computing: From the Exa-Scale to the Sensor-Scale

SESSION: Big Computing: From the Exa-Scale to the Sensor-Scale


TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Alice Koniges

Panelists:Frederica Darema, James Kahle, Sangtae Kim, Robert Lucas, Burton Smith, Kathy Yelick


The panel will discuss the potential for new opportunities through a vision of additional dimensions to Exascale and Big Data, namely those driven by the emerging ubiquitous instrumentation of systems through multitudes of distributed and heterogeneous collections of sensor- and controller-networks - the next wave of Big Data and Big Computing. Thus far, conquering the Exascale has been considered as having unique challenges for power efficiency at the multicore level, dynamic management of multitudes of such resources, optimized performance, fault tolerance and resilience, and new application algorithms. Ubiquitous instrumentation environments have corresponding requirements for power efficiencies, fault tolerance, etc. Potentially, similar kinds of multicores will be the building blocks of Exascale platforms and of sensors and controllers. Leveraging common technologies is also driven by trends in large application systems. Such considerations entice questions on what new opportunities are created through synergistic advances at the two extreme computing and data scales.
