  • CACM Aug. 2017 - Turing's Pre-War Analog Computers: The Fatherhood of the Modern Computer Revisited
    Alan Turing is often praised as the foremost figure in the historical process that led to the rise of the modern electronic computer. Turing’s famous 1936 paper on an “ideal machine” that could use simple rules to solve any problem is often cited as the origin of the automatic calculating machines developed in the 1940s. Computing Historian Leo Corry, however, contends that no such line can be dr...

    The 50-year reign of Moore’s Law, which delivered a billion-fold increase in transistors per chip, is finally over. Given that transistors are no longer getting much better, that the power budgets of microprocessors are not increasing, and that we’ve already replaced the single power-hungry processor with several energy-efficient ones, the only path to improve energy-performance-cost is specialize...
