Computing architecture, while improved over the last few decades, hasn’t fundamentally changed. What would happen if we took all of our modern advances, and used them to create a new type of architecture? Well, some engineers have done that; “the machine” is a project from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which aims to demonstrate just that sort of thing. How does it work, and how is it different from other computer architectures? In this talk, Keith Packard introduces The Machine, and describes how it differs from other computer architectures in hardware and software.
