Don Dea's curator insight, March 29, 2013 3:05 AM

The rates of change vary greatly among different technologies, the team found. 

“Information technologies improve the fastest,” Trancik says, “but you also see the sustained exponential improvement in many energy technologies. Photovoltaics improve very quickly. … One of our main interests is in examining the data to gain insight into how we can accelerate the improvement of technology.”

IBM rethinks the transistor to keep scaling compute power | GigaOM Tech News

IBM rethinks the transistor to keep scaling compute power | GigaOM Tech News | Tech articles for school | Scoop.it

IBM has come up with a model for a new transistor, the device that’s at the heart of every chip and the foundation of our tech-heavy society. The potential IBM breakthrough is a new coating for the transistor that allows the device to read ionic signals as opposed to electric ones. This is important because it could help enable chipmakers to put more transistors on a chip.

 

The tech giant hasn’t actually built a chip with the new transistor; instead, it has demonstrated a rough circuit. IBM expects the technology to leave the lab within the next five to seven years, and assuming that happens it can actually be produced using the same processes used today.

 

The benefit to this fundamental shift is that we can continue to make smaller chips with more processing power and keep to the schedule set by Moore’s Law. That “law” dictates that we double the number of transistors on a chip every 18 months (or two years). However this doubling has pressed the chip industry to the limits — packing those transistors onto small chips is like cramming a bunch of angsty teenagers into a small space.

Netflix: System Architectures for Personalization and Recommendation

Netflix: System Architectures for Personalization and Recommendation | Tech articles for school | Scoop.it

In our previous posts about Netflix personalization, we highlighted the importance of using both data and algorithms to create the best possible experience for Netflix members. We also talked about the importance of enriching the interaction and engaging the user with the recommendation system. Today we're exploring another important piece of the puzzle: how to create a software architecture that can deliver this experience and support rapid innovation. Coming up with a software architecture that handles large volumes of existing data, is responsive to user interactions, and makes it easy to experiment with new recommendation approaches is not a trivial task. In this post we will describe how we address some of these challenges at Netflix.
