I remember the time when everyone had an obsession with 'in before........' and with cats, then there was the obsession with sparta.

This place has more social trends than an american high school.
2012 grows near, MUHAAHAHAHAH*cough* lol.

OK, ummm something ontopic now....

I agree. w/ this much computing power it should substantially help the medical fields.

As if UK high schools don't have social trends. This place has as many trends as a message board populated by young males usually does.



An exaflop could do so many things that we can't even imagine computers doing. Don't just think about how they could improve speeds on existing computer uses: think of how computers could completely change the world we currently live in.

That being said, we'd need a network equally capable to make that computer much use.

At some point, much beyond our own means, the world will continue to develop without us, as we lay in the ground, underneath a vastly changed civilization long after we're gone. As much as distemper and contempt in being unchangeable generally stops most of us from civility and general peace with one another, we're just hugging the crutches of chaotic and constantly changing lives that are destined to be ruled by strife and only those with the highest amount of authority and disregard for us(society) as an essence whole.

As technology paces itself into being redeveloped, so does the need for anything statistical, and concurrent modernized figures keep up with the growing need. A petaflop is extraordinary. An exaflop is preposterous to current technology. But again, as I'm saying, the machines are what are necessary. It seems a bit grandiose to give that much potential calculation free range to subderive anything under the sun. Thank God for programming limitations. It would be like giving a neural impulse to a machine and adding the reflexes of a highly intelligent certifiable genius to the reigns.

But it is what it is.... be it Skynet or the Matrix, it'll probably change the way we strive to live, to at least the ones concerned with it.

dont they take these machines and use them to calculate and design how to build faster machines and such?

like use blue gene to help design the core 2 duo type stuff.. thats what i always thought they did with those beasts.. took a bunch of wimpy chips and made a giant package that was fast. to design a tiny package thats buff as can be further repeating the process over and over..

start a thread 10 years ago about having a teraflop computing power in a $1500 PC and it will bring up the same discussion about skynet, or whatever people call it back then. Times change.
