This Ted Talk style panel addresses topics in semiconductor research over the last 40 years. Panelists from industry and academia answered questions from what low-power computing will look like in the future to what the most compelling research areas are for current students. Students asked questions about ideal materials for cryogenic computing and photonics. The general consensus of this panel revolved around the growing demand for a paradigm shift in how we think about memory. Limitations inherent in the current 2D chip standard, the rising demand for silicon that far outstrips available supply, and even the way software developers think about memory will all need to be addressed within the next decade to meet the market demand for faster, smaller, cheaper devices for the future. Panelists described what their companies/universities are working on to address these challenges, including reducing defect density in quantum cubits, molecular/DNA data storage, and heterogeneous integration packaging.
