What Is Parallelism and Why Should We Care?

Charles Leiserson talks about the need to get rid of bloat and inefficiency, build scalable systems, and work on making our computer systems better behaved as he accepts the ACM and IEEE Computer Society 2014 Ken Kennedy Award for his influence on parallel computing systems and their adoption into mainstream use through scholarly research and development. 
The Ken Kennedy Award recognizes contributions to programmability or productivity in high-performance computing together with significant community service or mentoring contributions. Dr. Leiserson accepted his award at SC14 Conference on 18 November 2014 in New Orleans, LA.
Charles Leiserson is the head of the Supertech research group in the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). His research focuses on the theory of parallel computing, especially as it relates to engineering reality.
