Subject Computer technologies will change in the near future. The exponential growth of conventional technologies (according to Moore’s Law) will come to a halt, since physical boundaries will be reached soon. As a consequence, researchers and engineers are currently considering alternative (emerging) computer technologies which work differently to established (conventional) computation paradigms. Examples include quantum computation, reversible circuits, biochips, optical circuits, and more. This lecture provides an overview of these technologies and the corresponding computing paradigms. This covers an introduction of the respectively assumed models as well as possible applications. Finally, questions of how to efficiently design corresponding circuits for these technologies are shown.
