For Lack of a Better Civilization: The Future

  1. RE your comments on future role of computers:
    From Scientific American Feb 2015 p.57; article JUST ADD MEMORY
    “Modern computers all use a unit that does calculations and a separate memory unit that holds programs and data. Shuttling information back and forth between them takes lots of energy and time.
    “A new idea, MEMOCOMPUTING works differently, in a way similar to the neurons in a human brain, which include both computing and memory storage in the same unit. This could mean giant leaps in computer speed and efficiency, as well as new computing architectures.”
