Why Computing Won't Be Limited By Moore's Law. Ever

Why Computing Won't Be Limited By Moore's Law. Ever | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it
Silicon-based computing is reaching its limits. But a new technology that emulates the way our brains process information could sidestep those in a clever and profoundly important way.
Pierre Levy's insight:

The implications are clear. Assuming this technology can be refined and actually manufactured for use in processors and memory, it could form the basis of an entirely whole new class of electronic devices that would barely sip at power. Imagine a smartphone with that kind of technology. The screen, speakers and radios would still need power, but the processor and memory hardware would barely touch the battery.

Paolo Magrassi " :)) Watch out, the author misunderstands the subject completely. (+) Metal-oxide semiconductors, or MOS, are used in chips since decades; (+) We already have, and use everyday, permanent-state memories; (+) The correlation between this new technology and Moore's Law is weak: the potential lies in power consumption -a separate problem; (+) In smartphones, most power is consumed by radios and screens -forget memories; (+) The real IBM-promised innovation lies in the use of microfluidics instead of electrical currents in chips (hence, less power -mayb"
