Professor Anant Agarwal has a tendency to think big. One recent piece of work has just been donated to the MIT Museum after being documented in the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records as the largest microphone array on the planet – and that was just one component of a larger project. But while Agarwal is capable of thinking on a grand scale, he is also preoccupied with the challenge of how to make large things small, scalable, and revolutionary. The two paradigms intersect in the thorny, potentially very fruitful problem of multicore processing.
