800th Anniversary of Cambridge Univ. talk

It’s widely believed that future improvements in computer power will arrive in the form of chips with vastly more concurrent execution, such as 100-core chips. This belief has caused much more attention to be paid to the abysmal state of our concurrent programming abilities. Despite 40 years of research, most programmers find it very difficult to write programs that are concurrent, correct, and maintainable. This talk will explore how this happened, what the current state really is, and will offer some glimmers of hope for the future.
