May you live in interesting times, cautions the age-old proverb. As computing chips face the fundamental limitations of miniaturization, it is sure to be interesting times, indeed. One of the most pressing issues facing the scientific community is the inability of today’s best computers to process the large-scale simulations needed for understanding complex physical systems.
Is capital allocation in Banking a Physical System? Just get the cycles, pump up the volume, … and next time don’t worry too much about the new processing paradigms. Remember how that worked out for the London Whale?
