With Moore's Law coming to an end, architects must find ways to sustain performance growth without technology scaling. The most promising path is to build highly parallel systems that harness thousands of simple and efficient cores. But this approach will require new techniques to make massive parallelism practical, as current multicores fall short of this goal: they squander most of the parallelism available in applications and are too hard to program.
This high-energy event will bring together partners from academia, non-profits, civic leadership, and industry to participate in a conversation about using edge computing and gigabit network technologies to solve challenges in city transportation. We will showcase the latest advances in edge computing platforms and applications that have come out of research at the university and will invite attendees to participate in a dialog that will set the direction for research yet to come.
