The SEI helps advance software engineering principles and practices and serves as a national resource in software engineering, computer security, and process improvement. The SEI works closely with defense and government organizations, industry, and academia to continually improve software-intensive systems. Its core purpose is to help organizations improve their software engineering capabilities and develop or acquire the right software, defect free, within budget and on time, every time.
"I think as we look at the curve of technology, graphical processing units (GPU's) are only the start. People are building systems that have multiple GPUs in the same system. If you look at recent mobile phone releases, not only do you have a CPU and a GPU, but you have extra processing units—auxiliary processing units that might do special purpose stuff, for example, understanding motion sensors inside of a phone."
