The IBM Superfast Computer's Amazing Flop.
"By breaking the petaflop barrier sooner than was generally expected, the U.S. supercomputer industry has been able to sustain a pace of continuous performance increases, improving a thousandfold in processing power in 11 years. The next thousandfold goal is the exaflop, which is a quintillion calculations per second, followed by the zettaflop, the yottaflop and the xeraflop."(Here.)But what about the Fosbury flop? (Here.) No word in the story either about solving the garbage in, garbage out problem.
