PostSubject: Moores law breaking down   Wed Jun 27, 2012 11:31 pm

I found something weird while looking through videos on youtube from Michio Kaku and found this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bm6ScvNygUU
The video stood out among the others (bigthink's channel posts a lot) it's an end to the silicon era. Moores law will slow down and stop eventually, could we possibly make this happen to civilizations with computers and force them to improvise with dna, biological, and quantum computers? It would certainly be interesting and add real diversity to technology, where do we stand on this idea?

I'm standing on the border of "has not done enough research" and "Hey sensible theory," and thumbing my nose at the border patrol. We do have a fusion of biotech in the game, but in the end, phones and computers don't need to get smaller. No one needs a touch screen the size of their thumb.

Theory also dovetails well with my theory about arriving at the technological and economic carrying capacity of the planet for the human species, which I won't go into here, except to say that economic and technological growth has to decelerate rapidly very soon, or there's going to be an extremely huge crash as we overshoot the natural limits on the human population. Unless that has already occurred, which, there is some evidence towards. /radical environmental scientist

As far as gameplay, I see no opposition to bio and microtech. Not certain what you'd do to DNA to make it mimic a computer (Then again, we don't have enough working knowledge of a neuron to be certain of how it and others store a memory, kind of like knowing the programming for a computer without having any idea of what binary is...) but since we already have FTL in the future tech tree, I vote yes. I further vote, worry about it when we've reached that stage in development.

This seems interesting, but there's no need to slow down Moore's law.

Firstly, phones and computers do need to get smaller. Right now (with current technology), the GGR (galactic governing robot) could have to be about the size of a city, considering the amount of data storage and processing needed. Clearly, minatureisation would help here. In addition, personal phones and computers could benefit, because two neurochips taking up the same space as one is clearly better.

Furthermore, I believe that Moore's law will not slow down any time soon. In fact, it is of my opinion that there will occur another paradigm shift, where a new technology allowing the continuation of Moore's law is discovered, similar to the transition from electromechanical to vacuum tubes.
