New architectures for better supercomputers

Thomas Sterling is leading the Nasa Gilgamesh project to develop the MIND architecture, a fault tolerant space-borne PIM chip and is an investigator on the DARPA-sponsored Cray Cascade Project to build a Petaflops computer by 2010. Important near term developments are streaming, the Data Vortex network, processor in memory, multithreading, and parcel-driven transaction processing among others.
