Talk Title: "Challenges for Industrial Research Laboratory
in Post-Scaling Age"
This talk will be tar
geted to the graduate students who are interested in working for ind
ustrial research laboratories. The speaker will introduce IBM Resear
ch, its recent achievements, and most importantly its challenges ahead.&n
bsp; IBM Research conducts annual studies on the global technology outlook
and challenges facing the industry in the foreseeable future. The s
ignificant slowdown of the semiconductor technology scaling forces us to se
ek alternative approaches to improve system performances. The advent
of internet-scale datacenters also require new system architectures and so
ftware running on top of it. We cover these technology trends and di
scuss important research topics.
After the talk, the speaker
will provide one-to-one discussion with the students who are interested in
career opportunities at IBM Research. Those who are interested should send
