'Momentum Computing' Pushes Technology's Thermodynamic Limits

Professor Jim Crutchfield (left) and Graduate Student Kyle Ray (right)Professor Jim Crutchfield and his graduate student Kyle Ray were featured in an article in Scientific American on "Momentum Computing." Momentum Computing would allow computers of the future to produce much less heat than they do today. From the article:

"Physicist James Crutchfield of the University of California, Davis, and his graduate student Kyle Ray have proposed a new way to carry out computation that would dissipate only a small fraction of the heat produced by conventional circuits. In fact, their approach, described in a recent preprint paper, could bring heat dissipation below even the theoretical minimum that the laws of physics impose on today’s computers."
