EEs Explore Life After CMOS
By Rick Merritt

“Moore’s Law is not dead, but it has clearly reached old age, and no fundamental technology has emerged to replace it. Whatever comes next is likely to challenge old assumptions both for technologists and society at large.”

TTM 2014: Future of Health Care
By Roberto Saracco

“There is a lot going on in the health care space although, unfortunately, most of it is just noise with start ups looking at selling themselves rather than creating a sellable product. Examples of absurd data and absurd computation abounds with apps measuring your exercising rate by using GPS coordinates without even checking if you have been walking or using a car to go from A to B.”

TTM 2014: Future of Processing
By Roberto Saracco

“The evolution of processing has been driven by the continuous scaling of transistors. This is still continuing but for the first time we are seeing that the scaling does not go hand in hand with the decrease of price, actually the price is starting to increase exponentially as we try to scale down any further. We have reached 14nm and the 7 nm are expected by the end of this decade. The ultimate performances are limited by the power dissipation. Eventually, we will have to move to non-FET (Field Effect Transistors) transistors and alternative computation models.”

Does it make sense looking into the Future?
By Roberto Saracco

“Here I am in San Jose, getting ready for an exciting two days of discussion on the Future that technology can make possible.

I will report part of the discussion in the following posts. Here I am sharing a few ideas I’ll use to open the Symposium.”

Technology Time Machine Looks Far Ahead at Future of Processing
By Tom Conte and Elie Track

“The IEEE Technology Time Machine (TTM) is going further into the future.

Now in its third year, the annual two-day IEEE meeting is mixing things up a little in terms of format and topics. Rather than just looking at how some technologies might evolve in the next decade, experts and visionaries are going to look out to 2035 and beyond.”

IEEE Technology Time Machine Takes on the Future of Health
By Bruce Wheeler

“Innovation is driving a seemingly exponential growth of health-monitoring devices, many aimed at consumers with accuracy and reliability that falls far short of what is needed in the highly regulated healthcare market. Innovators need to be dedicated in the long term to providing value to patients.”

Inside the Technology Time Machine
By Ivan Berger

IEEE conference predicts innovations beyond 2035

“While many conferences focus on present-day research and technologies, the IEEE Future Directions Committee (FDC)—the organization’s R&D arm—has something else in mind. It wants to explore how today’s developments will influence the direction of technology, and the world we live in, a generation out—into the year 2035 and beyond.”
