Computer Technology

Laser boosted femtomagnetism could enable hard drives that are ten
thousand times faster:


"Researchers have been using laser pulses to directly modify the amount of the
interaction among the atoms to increase the exchange energy without
necessarily altering the magnetic structure of the material.

Remarkably, this happens in a time interval well below the nanosecond, as the
material response is almost entirely exhausted within the duration of the laser
pulse, less than 100 femtoseconds in the experiment (1 femtosecond is one
millionth of one billionth of a second ).

At the moment it’s all very theoretical, a “proof of principle” obtained in a lab,
making use of expensive and relatively bulky lasers, but if the past is any
indication, miniaturization will follow and these kind of applications will sooner or
later find their way to the market, as it has already happened with the ultra-
compact lasers with which we now read DVDs.

This demonstrates a new route to circumvent the hindrances of the current
magnetic storage technology, to reach writing and reading speeds up to ten
thousand times faster than those currently available."

Currently Quantum computers might be where Rockets were at
the time of Robert Goddard:


"If quantum computing is at the Goddard level that would be a good thing for
quantum computing. This means that the major fundamental breakthrough that
would put them over the top was in hand and merely a lot of investment,
engineering and scaling was needed."

So...faster Porn?

Seriously though, this is an amazing breakthrough. We certainly seem to be on the precipice of another technological revolution.

We already have animated hentai e-doujins.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Intel and Micron have new class of non-volatile memory that is 1000
times faster and 10 times denser than NAND Flash memory:


"Intel Corporation and Micron Technology, Inc. today unveiled 3D XPoint™
technology, a non-volatile memory that has the potential to revolutionize any
device, application or service that benefits from fast access to large sets of data.
Now in production, 3D XPoint technology is a major breakthrough in memory
process technology and the first new memory category since the introduction of
NAND flash in 1989.

The explosion of connected devices and digital services is generating massive
amounts of new data. To make this data useful, it must be stored and analyzed
very quickly, creating challenges for service providers and system builders who
must balance cost, power and performance trade-offs when they design memory
and storage solutions. 3D XPoint technology combines the performance, density,
power, non-volatility and cost advantages of all available memory technologies on
the market today. The technology is up to 1,000 times faster and has up to 1,000
times greater endurance than NAND, and is 10 times denser than conventional
memory."

Improved Computer Memory Management can enable chips
with thousands of cores:


"In a 128-core chip, that means that the new technique would require
only one-third as much memory as its predecessor. With Intel set to
release a 72-core high-performance chip in the near future, that’s a
more than hypothetical advantage. But with a 256-core chip, the space
savings rises to 80 percent, and with a 1,000-core chip, 96 percent."

3D Carbon nanotube chips with processing and memory
interwoven in layers can achieve over 1000 times compute
speed and they have a demo chip:


"The 3D design enables scientists to interweave memory, which stores
data, and the number-crunching processors in the same tiny space, said
Max Shulaker, one of the designers of the chip, and a doctoral candidate
in electrical engineering at Stanford University in California."

Advanced memristors are a pathway to affordable human
scale neuromorphic artificial general intelligence:


"It may be possible to create neuromorphic human-level Artificial General
Intelligence within 5 to 15 years for 30 to 100 thousand dollars, of marginal
cost using memristors."

Optical memory success which combined with photonic
logic will enable computers 100 times faster than today:


"Researchers have developed the first non-volatile all-optical chip
memory based on phase change material. The technology needed to
commercialize this solution already exists and pairing their solution with
photonic logic chips will lead to computers that are 100 times faster than
currently available machines."

say what you want about porn, its still a very good driving factor for alot of the technology we have today. Porn help push the in the dvd age as well as the current blue ray's cause comm'on we all want to watch it in HD.

The Search for the God Algorithm:

"All knowledge—past, present, and future—can be derived from data
by a single, universal learning algorithm.

Domingos is not talking about creating “revolutionary” and “disruptive”
new apps for efficiently ordering pizza or rapidly locating purveyors of
craft beer. If his master algorithm is discovered, the hyperbolic
vocabulary of tech-industry cheerleading would actually become
justified. He predicts that this algorithm would a) Cure cancer b)
Eliminate all jobs, freeing everyone to enjoy a life of leisure and
making employment just another vestige of humanity’s primitive past,
and c) Invent everything that can be invented.

Whether this is attainable is an open question."

Scientists can now “squeeze” light, a breakthrough that
could make computers millions of times faster:


"Have you ever wondered why we don’t use light to transmit
messages? Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, but while
we use light to carry signals along fiber optic cables, we use electrons
to process sound and information in our phones and computers. The
reason has always been because light particles–photons—are
extremely difficult to manipulate, whereas electrons can be
manipulated relatively easily.

But now a group of Harvard physicists has taken a major step toward
solving that puzzle, and have brought us one step closer to ultra-fast,
light-based computers.

The physicists, led by Professor Eric Mazur, have created a material
where the phase velocity of light is infinite. Their results were
published in Nature Photonics on Oct. 19th.

“The phase speed is infinite—much larger, infinitely larger than the
speed of light,” Mazur tells Quartz."

Skyscraper computers chips outperform conventional
by 1000 times:


"In Rebooting Computing, a special issue of the IEEE Computer journal,
the team describes its new approach as Nano-Engineered Computing
Systems Technology, or N3XT.

N3XT will break data bottlenecks by integrating processors and memory
like floors in a skyscraper and by connecting these components with
millions of "vias," which play the role of tiny electronic elevators. The
N3XT high-rise approach will move more data, much faster, using far less
energy, than would be possible using low-rise circuits."

Many accurate enough chips will use software for
correction to achieve up to 10,000 times higher
speed and lower power usage:


"Interested in solving tasks that benefit from floating point (“fp”),
but IEEE floating point unit takes over 500,000 transistors

• Could less accurate fp arith unit (eg, 1% error) be very small?
• Yes: at least 100x smaller - O(5000) transistors - will sketch
• If errors can be compensated in application software, can get
10,000x better speed, power than CPU (100x GPU)

DARPA funded the creation of Joseph Bates Singular Computing LLC’s
chip because fuzziness can be an asset when it comes to some of the
hardest problems for computers, such as making sense of video or
other messy real-world data. “Just because the hardware is sucky
doesn’t mean the software’s result has to be,” says Bates."

Fujitsu now making DRAM killer with 1,000x
performance boost:


"Fujistu Semiconductor Ltd. has become the first manufacturer to
announce it is mass producing a new RAM that boasts 1,000 times the
performance of DRAM but stores data like NAND flash memory.

The new non-volatile memory known as Nano-RAM (NRAM) was first
announced last year and is based on carbon nanotube technology."
