The Next Big Thing in Computers
It’s not a person ... at least not one person ... although
an engineering faculty member is contributing. Peter
M. Kogge, the
Associate Dean for Research and the Ted H. McCourtney Professor of
Computer Science and Engineering, has been named to the Interim Council
for the Community Computing Consortium (CCC).
the Computing Research Association in conjunction with the National Science Foundation
in order to identify major research opportunities and establish grand challenges
for the field of computing, the CCC provides scientific leadership and vision
on issues related to the future of computing and large-scale computing projects.
Many CCC discussions focus on the next big computing ideas — those that
will define the future of computing, galvanize the best and brightest minds of
the next generation of students and researchers, and attract research investment
and public support. Members of the CCC also study computing’s impact on
industry, as well as the nature and role of research.
fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and
an IBM fellow (retired), Kogge has served on many panels, committees,
and workshops addressing the future of computing. He has written two
books on computer architecture and holds 39 patents and patent applications.
An alum (B.S., EE ’68), Kogge returned to the University in 1994.
