Computer systems are evolving away from the conventional Von Neumann model of one CPU plus one RAM . Besides long-established distributed architectures we have a rapid expansion of GPU -based general-purpose computing and the emergence of FPGA -based reconfigurable computing. Increasingly, access to the computational platform is not physical but remote, “in the cloud”. Along with new platforms, a plethora of new special-purpose languages and dialects are being introduced. Is platform-dependent programming throwing us back to the times of machine-dependent programming? Is there any hope for general-purpose architecture-independent programming languages? My research is about giving a positive answer to the second question.
