The Multicore Revolution
Prof. Maurice Herlihy, Brown University, USA – Abstract: Computer architecture is undergoing, if not another revolution, then a vigorous shaking-up. The major chip manufacturers have, for the time being, mostly given up trying to make processors run faster. Instead, they have switched to “multicore” architectures,…
Model Checking and the Curse of Dimensionality
Prof. Edmund M. Clarke, Carnegie Mellon University, USA – Abstract: Model Checking is an automatic verification technique for large state transition systems. It was originally developed for reasoning about finite-state concurrent systems. The technique has been used successfully to debug complex computer hardware and communication…
Symbiotic Autonomy: Robots, Humans, and the Web
Prof. Manuela Veloso, Carnegie Mellon University, USA – Abstract: We envision ubiquitous autonomous mobile robots that coexist and interact with humans while performing assistance tasks. Such robots are still far from common, as our environments offer great challenges to robust autonomous robot perception, cognition, and…
Design reliable electronics in an unreliable world
Prof. Georges Gielen, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium – Abstract: Microelectronics have changed the way of life of every individual person in our society. We use and rely more and more upon electronic systems, from communications to multimedia to biomedical and automotive. However, the use of…
