More of What to Know as Moore's Law Turns 50

More of What to Know as Moore's Law Turns 50

A special lecture and a snapshot of some of the research pertaining to advances in computer chip technology acknowledge this month's 50th anniversary of Moore's Law.

The anniversary has already provided us a chance to highlight some of the work of UT Austin researchers to address the so-called "dark side" of this observation, which relates to exponential advances in computing technology.

This afternoon, the Department of Computer Sciences will host a lecture by Turing Award Recipient Chuck Thacker, discussing "Computing After Moore's Law." The lecture, in POB 2.302 at 1:30 p.m., is open to the public.

You can also get up to speed on key facts about Moore's Law and related work by College of Natural Sciences, with this new infographic courtesy of graphic designer Jenna Luecke:
