IEEE CASS RS Talks 2020
Abstract: Many scientists states that Moore's Law is close to its end. One of the main reasons is the physical limit of silicon transistors miniaturization. There is not yet an obvious successor technology to the currently CMOS logic, but some possible alternatives have been investigated. In this talk we will discuss in details the historical evolution of computer machines until the end of the golden era where software, architecture, implementation and devices could be developed independently. So a question comes to mind: do we need to continue controlling the electric current to perform computation?
We will discuss some possible alternatives that will allow the development of low energy systems, breaking physical limits of computation and allowing future learning systems.
