DAVE ALBONESI: Smartphones have become
widely popular around the world. We use them to communicate, to organize
our lives, to find information, even to entertain ourselves. All this is possible
because a smartphone contains an amazingly
powerful little computer. And the workings of that little
computer are the subject of this course. We’ll start by covering the fundamental
layers of computing technology, starting with binary numbers and moving
step by step all the way up to apps. Now, at this point in the course, you’ll
be able to design a working computer. Then we’ll learn advanced techniques,
such as pipelining, multithreading, and multicore, and
how they work together to make your smartphone
so incredibly fast. I’m Dave Albonesi. And I invite you to join me in
exploring the inner workings of this amazing little computer.
