Extreme and green: what science needs from computing



Leading scientists from neuroscience, nanoscience, astrophysics, computer science and engineering are gathering to discuss this question in Tromso, Norway, continuing a dialogue that began at last year’s Kavli Futures Symposium.

Ahead of this next symposium, four participants share some of the key ideas expected to be raised – in particular, the possibility of extremely energy-efficient computing technologies that might mirror the efficiency of the human brain. They also discuss the current impact of recent advances in computing. As noted by one of these scientists, \”We’re in the middle of a revolution right now in the brain sciences and in many other sciences… We’re entering an era now where computers have finally become fast enough to allow us to make rapid progress over the next decade.\”
