NSCI Seminar: Progress in Superconducting Computing

 Since the 1950s, there have been several efforts to develop a computer based on superconducting logic. Each was abandoned due to technical limitations and to overwhelming competition from the semiconductor industry. The end of Moore's Law related improvements for CMOS coupled with the requirement to develop computers at the exascale has motivated the search for viable post-Moore technologies, suggesting another look at superconducting technology. The talk will discuss the IARPA Cryogenic Computing Technology program to develop a prototype superconducting computer, and related developments around the world.
