Information Storage and Nanotechnology

The slowdown in areal density increases that have been observed in
engineered systems such as magnetic hard disk drives may lead some
to believe that we are approaching the end of further significant
improvements in information storage technology. In this
presentation, I will argue that not only is this not the case it is
in fact more likely that new paradigms that exploit nanotechnology,
namely, the ability to manipulate materials and devices at the
nanoscale in a deterministic manner will allow for many orders of
magnitude increases in information storage densities. In addition
the integration of information storage and processing will allow
for new IT architectures that will make possible applications and
have societal impacts that we can only begin to imagine today.
