Tweakfest - Future Life

Walter Hehl, IBM Research Center Ruschlikon

Gives a broad overview on the progression of computer processing power and storage and how this influences “pervasive” computing.

Interesting points:

“What was once private is now public”, “what was once hard to copy, is now trivial to duplicate” and “what was once easily forgotten, is now stored forever.” (Ron Rivest)

IBM sees the nexus of “intelligence” in a household in the various incarnations of PlayStations, X-Boxes. Supposedly they started 5-6 years ago to design the (cell)processors that power or will power these devices.
