End of Moore’s Law (?)
I have been thinking of the implications of the possible “End of Moore’s Law”. Read a related article, Is Moore’s Party Over?, in Comm of ACM.
Whether the end of Moore’s law is near is a topic of active debate, so I don’t want to delve into that. But most people will agree that things are slowing down when it comes to computing.
If Moore’s law is over, will even the number of cores be flattened? What would that mean to computer scientists, engineers, programmers, students, and teachers? Where will big innovations be made if it’s not in exponential performance growth?
