Renewable sources make up an increasing share of the energy supply, and they get cheaper every year. Countries are also setting new emissions reduction targets and unprecedented public investments that could usher in more technological advancements.
So despite what may sound like a flurry of bad news, there’s at least some reason to be hopeful. Read full story.
These simple design rules could turn the chip industry upside down
Since the invention of computers, humans have devised many programming languages to command them to do our commands. In order for the chip to execute your code, the software must translate that code into instructions that the chip can use. So engineers specify specific binary strings to prompt the hardware to perform certain actions, known as computer instructions.
