Meg Whitman and Martin Fink from HP tell about their vision of the future. This is one of those ‘must watch’ talks. They describe memristor and answer how it will maintain Moore’s law, in the process within the next several years overhauling computer architectures!

Any one byte in a rack of 160 petabytes can be addressed in under 250 nanoseconds. We are getting to about 6 terabits per second on a fiber. We can go to 3-dimensional memory with photonic cables, we do not have design restrictions as with copper anymore.
