The End of Moore’s Law

An educational (and detailed) essay (from all the way back, February 2017) by Robotics pioneer & founder of Rethink Robotics, Rodney Brooks on why the end of Moore’s Law isn’t necessarily bad news.

…the end of Moore’s Law, as I have defined the end, will bring about a golden new era of computer architecture. No longer will architects need to cower at the relentless improvements that they know others will get due to Moore’s Law. They will be able to take the time to try new ideas out in silicon, now safe in the knowledge that a conventional computer architecture will not be able to do the same thing in just two or four years in software.
