Exascale computing

In this podcast, Peter Kogge explains what it would take to increase our computing capacity by a factor of 1000. We can’t just do more of what we’re doing now and scale linearly. For example, one limitation is power consumption. Data centers now consume 1.5% of the electricity on the U.S. power grid. Nevertheless, Kogge outlines ways we could achieve a 1000-fold increase in computing capacity by 2015.
