Thermodynamic Computing

January 3-5, 2019 · Prince Wakiki Hotel

Thermodynamics has been a historical concern in the engineering of conventional computing systems due to its role in power consumption, scaling, and device performance. Today, we see thermodynamics re-emerging in a new role as an algorithmic technique in areas such as machine learning, annealing, quantum, and neuromorphic systems. Recent theoretical developments in non-equilibrium thermodynamics suggest thermodynamics may become the basis of a new “thermodynamic computing” paradigm. For example, it may lead to computing systems that self-organize in response to external input.

While it has been known for some time that quantum computers could in principle solve problems that are intractable on today’s supercomputers such as breaking public key cryptography and solving hard computational chemistry problems, the field of quantum computing is still at an early stage. Recent progress in realizing small scale quantum computers is encouraging and these devices may scale up further in the near future. However, currently, only very few opportunities exist to bring quantum computing experts together with experts from other computer science fields with much to offer: programming languages, compiler design, computer architecture, and design automation in an exchange of ideas.

A Roadmap for US Robotics

May 21-22, 2009 · CRA/CCC

Over the last two decades, the internet has—in many ways—transformed our daily lives from work routines to social networking. The internet is an impressive media for interconnecting computers. However, almost all these computers are passive devices with no or very limited facilities for interaction with the physical world. Robots—on the other hard—are devices designed to interact intelligently with the environment. Over the next decade or two the prediction is that robotics will impact our daily lives in manners that, at least, matches the way the internet has impacted our life.
