Computer Architecture Today

Informing the broad computing community about current activities, advances and future directions in computer architecture.

Increasing diversity in the broad field of computing is an ongoing challenge.  Although many people are aware of the “google memo”, I don’t think many SIGARCH (and adjacent SIG) members are aware of a rebuttal by John Hennessy, Maria Klawe, and David Patterson in an opinion piece published by WIRED magazine titled “What James Damore Got Wrong About Gender Bias in Computer Science“.  It is worth the read given recent events and when you have future conversations regarding diversity.
