Episode 7 of Computer Architecture Podcast Released! Featuring guest Prof. Sarita Adve

Computer Architecture Podcast: a series of conversations on cutting-edge work in computer architecture and the remarkable people behind it.

Announcing the release of Episode 7: Domain-specific Systems for AR/VR and Extended Reality with Dr. Sarita Adve, who is the Richard T. Cheng Professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her research interests span the system stack, including hardware, programming languages, operating systems, and applications. She co-developed the memory consistency models for the C++ and Java programming languages, based on her early work on data-race-free (DRF) models. Her group recently released the Illinois Extended Reality testbed or ILLIXR, the first fully open source extended reality system to democratize XR systems research and development. She has also made innovative contributions to heterogenous computing, software-driven approaches to resiliency, and approximate computing. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science, IEEE, ACM and a recipient of the ACM SIGARCH Maurice Wilkes award. As ACM SIGARCH chair, she co-founded the CARES movement, and is a winner of the CRA distinguished service award.
