The Rogues Gallery is a new concept focused on developing our understanding of next-generation hardware with a focus on unorthodox and uncommon technologies. This project, initiated by Georgia Tech’s Center for Research into Novel Computing Hierarchies (CRNCH), will acquire new and unique hardware (ie, the aforementioned “rogues”) from vendors, research labs, and startups and make this hardware available to students, faculty, and industry collaborators within a managed data center environment. By exposing students and researchers to this set of unique hardware, we hope to foster cross-cutting discussions about hardware designs that will drive future performance improvements in computing long after the Moore’s Law era of “cheap transistors” ends.

NSF CCRI and CCRI-VO
The Rogues Gallery is funded in part by the NSF CISE Community Research Infrastructure (CCRI) program under Grant #2016701, “CCRI: Medium: Rogues Gallery: A Community Research Infrastructure for Post-Moore Computing” and is part of the larger CCRI Virtual Organization (CCRI-VO) effort. Please see their site at ccrivo.org for other CCRI-funded infrastructures.
