Memory efficient applications

There is a trend for CPU performance to increase at a faster rate than memory buses, which is creating a big problem of data starvation in current CPUs. This has a lot of implications on how the computing applications should handle the data in order to achieve optimal performance, In my talk I'll describe several techniques to cope with this problem. We will also see how, curiously enough, compressing data can help computations go faster. Finally, and based on the above, I'll show some implementations of efficient data containers for hosting Big Data.
