From the historical perspective YES. When I worked on an array processor the 30MIPs capacity was quite high at the time ($250K) with today's basic laptops running at 3Ghz with Floating Point units and GPUs would blow right past that with ease.. Someday in the near future people will laugh at the "slow old" computers like this. I can only hope to see it!
This will be a very strong computer knowing it will have a 16 cores processor.
Will supercomputer today become a general device like PC at home in the future? From different articles, it seems many companies are putting more effort to boost the computing ability not only in the level of the core but the system architecture of supercomputing. Is it a gold mine as well?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
