Video: Former IBMer Dave Turek Explains DNA-based Storage and its Place in the Compute Landscape to Come

New compute architectures, with the potential to propel systems power forward even as Moore’s Law winds down, are emerging — a phenomenon sometimes referred to as “technology disaggregation.” Hence the explosive growth of accelerated CPU/GPU-based computing within the von Neumann domain and the intensive activity and investment in quantum. While classical von Neumann computing will […]
