We are entering a new era of computing, characterized by the need to handle over one zettabyte (1021 bytes, or ZB) of data. The world’s capacities to sense, transmit, store, and process information need to grow three orders of magnitude, while maintain an energy consumption level similar to that of the year 2010. In other words, we need to produce thousand-fold improvement in performance per watt. To face this challenge, in 2012 the Chinese Academy of Sciences launched a 10-year strategic… CONTINUE READING
