About the talk:

We are at a nascent stage of non-volatile memories (NVM) creating significant changes to the memory heirarchy of compute platforms. The talk will cover NVM in the form of NAND memory, from basic operation and reliability physics; system implemtation of NAND into solid state disks and caches and their impact upon computing. Future memory devices and architectures will also be discussed.
