Funky! Kunle Olukotun, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Stanford University is giving the virtual key note in the virtual auditorium here at the Multicore Virtual Conference. Quite interesting. He is talking about how to regain the free lunch, which Herb Sutter of Microsoft coined a couple of years ago as “being over”
We’ll see. He is referring to transactional memory and some magic how to parallelize software.
I am still a bit distracted. The interesting aspect for me here is the conference itself. Things need getting used to … it is not trivial to find different locations as there are direct shortcuts between the exhibition and the auditorium.
I am still here … meet me at the Multicore Virtual Conference!
