Dave Thomas, software engineering veteran and adjunct research professor at Carleton University, delivered the Technology Innovation Management (TIM) Lecture on March 8. His talk centered on the advent of massive memory storage and how it will affect the computer industry.
“Nowadays, it’s impossible to buy a machine with less than 128GB of memory, maybe even 256GB,” said Thomas. “By 2018, if not earlier, I think we’ll see a laptop with 10 terabytes of memory for under $1,000.”
