Science of Performance Curves, an EDU Workshop
presently in the planning stage. Would you like to sponsor or
volunteer to help us produce this?
explains the differential rates of acceleration in our technology
performance curves (computing, storage, bandwidth, energy production,
etc.) as documented in Performance
- The greatest gains occur in technologies where the rates of
miniaturization and virtualization
are the fastest. Why is this curious fact so little-known? What
are its business, policy, and social implications?
- Can we develop better predictive theories for the growth and
future of technology performance curves?
EDU is an
of scholars exploring evolutionary and developmental processes
in the universe and its subsystems. Interested in learning and
advancing the science and systems theory relevant to acceleration
studies? What is predictable in complex systems? What is accelerating
change? How do we differentiate between predictable and unpredictable
processes in the universe and its subsystems? Join us to discuss
these future-important questions.
