Computing Without Processors article on ACM Queue


My article on Computing Without Processors is on the ACM Queue page now: http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2000516 

The article explains why it is important for us to learn to program not just regular microprocessors but also many other kinds of computing elements. As we struggle to meet the latency and energy consumption constraints we will inevitably be forced to use heterogeneous architectures which comprise the evolution of today’s GPUs (for data-parallelism) and FPGA (for 2D and 3D spatial computing).

    Wow, for both the technical aspects and as to the ability to describe this in a way that my feebile mind could almost understand this!

    thanks
