Colloquium: The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Future of Nanoelectronics


Monday, May 8, 2017 4:00 PM - 4:50 PM

Sung-Mo “Steve” Kang, Distinguished SoE Chair Professor
University of California, Santa Cruz

Recently the fourth industrial revolution has become main theme worldwide fueled by internet, IoT, cloud computing, big data, machine learning, and AI. The scope and the speed of this revolution are far beyond the three previous revolutions. In this talk we will briefly go over the history of these revolutions and discuss enabling technologies of the fourth industrial revolution, in particular nanoelectronics. In nanoelectronics resistive memories such as phase change memories, nanomechanical memories, magnetoresistive memories, and memristors have received much attention in recent years as the reliability of charge-based memories such as DRAMs become even more volatile with deep submicron technology scaling, and also for much denser on-chip implementation. Also the continuing demand for low power chips and systems calls for low energy signal transfers between memory and processing blocks, and thus the so-called processing-in-memory. Neuro-computing is also much related to the future of machine learning and AI, especially in mimicking how human brain functions. Interesting relevant aspects of memristors will be explained in this talk, along with challenging research and engineering issues.
