From Appendix A of "Rebooting the IT Revolution: A Call to Action"
In a recent blog entry ( Predicting the Future: The Steamrollers and Machine Learning) I pointed out the current limits on the use of silicon for computing. Even though the predictions show the substantial impact of computing on power generation, there is only a scattered set of initiatives or technology development that are looking into this issue.
This was reinforced when we, at LighOn, recently filled a form to join Optics Valley, a non-profit group representing the interest of the Optics industry here in France.. Many of our answers fell into the "Other" category. That feeling was very much reinforced last night when I watched the IEEE rebooting computing video that features a set of initiatives that aims at solving this exact problem. But if you watch the short video, you'll probably notice that our technology also falls in the "Others" category.
