What innovations are possible with ultra-efficient sensors?

What innovations are possible with ultra-efficient sensors?

If you think we're in the age of Big Data now, just wait: It's only just begun. On stage at VERGE DC this morning, Jon Koomey walked through the steady progression of energy efficiency in computing devices -- the energy corollary to Moore's Law -- and what it means for innovations in how we use IT for sustainability. Koomey, a consulting professor at Stanford University and one of the leading researchers on energy-efficient computing (and author of a recent book on energy and climate innovation ), explained the widespread understanding of Moore's Law, namely that the performance of microprocessors is doubling every 1.5 years. "One thing people don't know about is that the efficiency of computing in that same period, from 1975 to today, has also doubled every 1.5 years," Koomey said. "And that trend started in the 1940s, it started in the era of vacuum tubes, before the mic...
