Lecture by Renee James and Wei Li for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE 380). Renee and her co-presenter touch upon Intel's processor direction for multi-core and then dive into its impact to software; parallel programming in the mainstream has different characteristics than in the previous era when it was restricted to high performance computing - the two cover this new paradigm, its challenges and some of the solutions being developed by the software industry.
In this course, Stanford University gives 22 video lectures on the Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium. This course features weekly speakers on current research and developments in computer systems. Topics touch upon all aspects of computer science and engineering including logic design, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, computer applications, public policy, and the social, business, and financial implications of technology. Frequently the Colloquium provides the first public forum for discussion of new products, discoveries, or ideas. This playlist consists of seminar speakers recorded during the 2007-2008 academic year.
The original name of this course is: Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium (2007-2008).
