11/24/2009 - 18:00 As transistors decrease in size, their reliability also decreases. That decrease may lead to computing applications running incorrectly. While it may be possible to guarantee correct execution at the expense of area, power, or performance, the cost will become prohibitive for future processors. ECE Assistant Professor Rakesh Kumar is working to solve the problem of computing in the face of errors that future transistors may produce.
