    AND, according to the link, also 200 times more energy efficient!
    Makes me wonder what can be achieved with this if combined with both neural network circuitry and spintronics that would collectively increase speed and energy efficiency by at least another 100 fold if not 1000 fold!

    We will be in a far different computational world by 2040. Spintronics has the potential to be 100,000 X more energy efficient when they finally get their act together to make actual working circuits.

    maybe they will soon be able to sequence my DNA and store it for future resurrection

    The NSF is working on something quite similar.

    How are you doing?

    Pretty good. Just trudging along.

    Same with my wife, been in hospital 6 times in the last year and now an affliction they can't figure out. Maybe getting better though. She was in excruciating pain for months. That can really drag you down in so many ways.
