(GIGAOM): We are moving from the information age to the insight age, where it’s not just data that matters, but finding ways to use it. These are uncharted waters, and the needs of the computing systems that will discover these insights are remarkably different from the computing systems we use today. It is not a surprise that the computer industry is building chip with more cores to keep up with influx of data and the need to process it faster. Adding cores is a way to boost the number of processors and make a chip perform better without trying to increase the clock speed. And with more cores, we need to think differently about programming. And in this lies a big challenge and big opportunity. Full Article
