Only 75 years ago ENIAC was one of the first state-of-the-art computers, a 100-foot long monstrosity with 17,000 vacuum tubes that could carry out 5000 additions per second. Since then, we have seen explosive growth in computer technology that has come to encompass nearly every aspect of daily life. Modern research in computer architecture and embedded systems continues to expand these frontiers. Here at UK, faculty in ECE do research in embedded systems, supercomputing, and quantum computing technologies.
