The progress in micro-processors performance brings with it multiple challenges. Architectural innovation to enable performance and micro-architectural features to improve single thread performance and efficient interconnect of multiple cores, are just a few of the well-known challenges. The progress, however, brings with it many other challenges that must be addressed by micro-processors products, although little is being talked about them. This talk will focus on a few of these less-spoken-of challenges, such as power issues caused by the progress in performance (other than the classic dynamic power), soft-error-rate challenges, and mitigation of software complexity. The talk will give the industry perspective on these challenges.

Short Bio:
The talk will be given by Ron Gabor, a micro-processor core architect at Intel. Ron has been involved in CPU architecture for 15 years at Intel Israel Design Center, and took part in the architecture specification of multiple CPU generations including those being sold today. Ron holds an MSc in Electrical Engineering from Tel Aviv University. He holds over 25 patents in various aspects of CPU architecture, and teaches computer structure at Tel Aviv University and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The colloquium is jointly organized by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Cyprus.
