Your research should include speculation on where the state-of-the-art will be in the near future for one of the following technologies. Your paper could include a description of the state-of-the-art in your technology, a discussion of where the sources that you read believe the technology is heading in the near future, and a discussion of how this technology will affect the choices you would make if you were making purchase recommendations for a client. Although there is room for personal opinion in your paper, you must justify your conclusions. • Multi-core computing • Symmetric multiprocessing • Distributed computing • Cluster computing • Parallelism, e.g., Massively parallel computing • Cluster computing • Grid computing • Quantum computing • Emerging storage technologies • Peripheral connections and buses • Video display systems • CPU architectures • Very Large Scale Integration systems • Microprocessor advancements • Memory technologies (e.g., non-volatile memory) • Optical technologies • Cache organization and operation • I/O Advancements • Deep Learning accelerators • Data Center advancements • Emerging mobile technologies and tools • Neural circuits • Expanding bandwidth • Computer architecture and energy efficiency • DNA computing • Coupling and Coupling strategies • Pipelining • DMA • SIMD architectures • MIMD architectures • Processor interconnection • Multithreading techniques • Trends in embedded systems • Nanotechnology • Other (with instructor approval.) Note: Most of the listed topics are very broad, so you should narrow your research to some specific technical aspects related to the subject.
