The 10-10-10 hypothesis

"If we can get [power] consumption down by a factor of 10, compute performance up by a factor of 10, we can get cost factor down by a factor of 10, we can ship 10 times as many units. This will be key to differentiation and opportunity for this industry."

Well stated, and quite likely a prediction that will be borne out. Those "ifs" are pretty big though.

IoT definitely is a bowl of ample opportunities for everyone involved in the electronics industry. Imagine everything in your home is on internet and can be monitored and controlled from any part of the world. It will be a boon for people who keeps traveling, for mothers who always need that extra time for themselves. It will revolutionize the humanity as whole.

Yes, he did not mention exactly how power onsumption was to go down by a factor of 10, nor compute performance yp by a factor of 10. If that happens, the possibilities are quite enticing.

Do you think this is a realistic hypothesis? One analyst I spoke with called rules of ten "generalized" and added that, in reality, those relationships don't hold well.

Yes IoT if we think of implementing in present day things, it is very much possible using the devices and readily available protocol stack, but what the technology will demand is power efficient and reliable implementation now this will be an challenging opportunity for the chip giants.

The deployment of IPv6 has to really take off for IoT to succeed.

I have a feeling the 10-10-10 hypothesis is a bit generalised as well. It's sounds more like rhetoric than research. The take away, I suppose is more of an appreciation of how mitigating the constraints can improve shipments.

That's a completely realistic hypothesis, provided you choose the correct number base.  A factor of 10 base 2 might be doable, but I think I'll put my money on base 1.618 :-)
