TitleHardware, wetware, software: many MIPS and what we'll do with them
PublisherUniversity Video Communications
DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"Hardware capacity and performance continue to grow at a high rate, typically 4X every three years for major technologies. This kind of growth rate has not been common to the experience of human beings, often called "wetware." The basic characteristics of wetware is unlikely to change very quickly, requiring less-predictable leaps in software to bridge the gap between hardware and wetware. This talk reviews performance, latency, and bandwidths trends for hardware and wet-ware, then illustrates the kinds of leading-edge software that have been used to help wetwares interact more effectively with their hardware."
