Tecnología verde: supercomputadora de USD 100

Con la convergencia de toda la información hacia el formato digital, las aplicaciones que implican análisis numéricos (simulaciones, estadísticas, biotecnología, inteligencia artificial, realidad virtual, realidad aumentada, big data , etc), las aplicaciones de uso masivo (redes sociales, startups globales, etc) y la cantidad de operaciones de punto flotante por segundo (FLOP) que se necesitan para nuestro mundo digital van en aumento.

Para procesar todo ese contenido y esas operaciones complejas se usan procesadores que consumen bastante energía (hasta 400W por procesador, imagine 4 de las antiguas bombillas incandescentes) entonces una forma de ayudar es mejorar la relación capacidad de procesamiento / consumo de energía.

Una compañia llamada Adapteva hace poco publicó una iniciativa para reunir fondos para desarrollar computadoras de USD 100 con capacidad de unos 45 Ghz (recuerde que actualemente las computadoras de escritorio usan procesadores de menos de 10 Ghz con menos de 4 núcleos de procesamiento) a través de 64 núcleos de procesamiento consumiento tan solo 5W de potencia (menos que una bombilla ahorrdora común).

Es interesante que el financimiento del proyecto provino de la comunidad (reunieron más de USD 750.000 incialmente) a través de crowdfunding donde cualquiera podia donar algunos dólares y recibir a cambio desde camisetas hasta clusters (varias computadoras configuradas para trabajar como una sola aumentando su rendimiento) listos para ser usados. Las fechas de presentación del producto están planeadas para mayo de 2013, es ultraemocionante pensar que se puede acceder a toda esa capacidad de procesamiento por un costo tan asequible y con un consumo de energía tan bajo.
