There are several schools of thought each one with a point of view about how to get at the truth of the things we observe. The question is do any of these approaches help us understand the world more accurately?< Less

More > of an instruction-set architecture, once considered an art, has been transformed into one of the most quantitative branches of computer technology. At the same time, better understanding of various forms of concurrency, from standard pipelining to massive parallelism, and invention of architectural structures to support a reasonably efficient and user-friendly programming model for such systems, has allowed hardware performance to continue its exponential growth. This trend is expected to continue in the near future.< Less
