PART 2 Based on the numbers above I believe that consumers will be able to buy a 100 TB hard drive in the years 2020 to 2030. How I came to those years is right now in 2013 we are able to buy a 5 TB hard drive and the number is increasing rapidly year by year so with those numbers that is my prediction. As of right now for a hundred dollars you can purchase 8 GB’s of RAM, ten years ago you could purchase 1 GB of RAM for around two hundred dollars, so if you were going to predict how much RAM you could buy in ten years for a hundred dollars you could predict around 16 GB’s of RAM based on previous prices on RAM. Also as of right now you can purchase a 1 TB hard drive for around a hundred dollars depending on the make and model, so in ten years I say we will also have or about to have a 100 TB hard drive. So in ten years I believe based on prices on hard drives within the past that for a hundred dollars you will be able to buy a 50 TB hard…...

Memory

...MEMORY Memory is one of the most important concepts in learning; if things are not remembered, no learning can take place. Futhermore, memory has served as a battleground for opposing theories and paradigms of learning (e.g., Adams, 1967; Ashcraft, 1989; Bartlett, 1932; Klatzky, 1980; Loftus & Loftus, 1976; Tulving & Donaldson, 1972). Some of the major issues include recall versus recognition, the nature of forgetting (i.e., interference versus decay), the structure of memory, and intentional versus incidental learning. According to the early behaviorist theories (e.g., Thorndike, Guthrie, Hull), remembering was a function of S-R pairings which acquired strength due to contiguity or reinforcement. Stimulus sampling theory explained many memory phenomenon on the basis of statistical outcomes. On the other hand, cognitive theories (e.g., Tolman) insisted that meaning (i.e., semantic factors) played an important role in remembering. In particular, Miller suggested that information was organized into "chunks" according to some commonality. The idea that memory is always an active reconstruction of existing knowledge was championed by Bruner and is found in the theories of Ausubel and Schank. Some theories of memory have concerned themselves with the nature of the processing. Paivio suggests a dual coding scheme for verbal and visual information. Craik & Lockhart proposed that information can be processed to different levels of understanding. Rumelhart & Norman describe three...

Using your hard drive as memory causes a serious performance hit, as hard drives are slower than RAM. You must have enough memory, adding more does not help if you are not doing anything that needs more memory. Today, a modern PC and a modern OS need about 4 gigs to achieve this for most standard users. You want enough RAM so the OS doesn't start using the hard drive as memory. 2. The user with the three 200 GB hard disks has the advantage, because he can utilize all three disks simultaneously, while the other one can only use that single disk. The user with the three disks will probably be able to do more, faster. 3.

Memory

...Memory Carmela Briggs Psychology111 9/24/13   Memory Long-Term Memory is what stores events, skills, and things that we need for functioning in everyday life. It is how we remember our names and the names of our friends, family, and the people we are often in close contact with. It is vital to remember skills such as how to brush our teeth, get dressed, cook food, ride a bike, drive a car, and learn in our educational system. Without it, we would need assistance just to get through everyday life. On the other hand, short-term memory only briefly stores information. When dealing with short term memory, you may hear something one moment and within a few seconds not be able to recall what you just heard. To go back a day later and try to recall that information may be challenging because the information is no longer there. In knowing this when it comes to studying its best to do it in a repetitive manner. The more you read and look over something, the better chance you have of getting it stored in your long-term memory. So when it is necessary to retrieve the information it is there. Looking over some material only once may serve no purpose when test time comes. The information may be placed in your short- term memory and may be gone moments after reading. So, for best results when trying to retain information at a later date it is always best to do it with the long term memory in mind. Attention Giving focused attention to what is being read helps to make better sense......

Memories

...“No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories.” ― Haruki Murakami I had a lot of memories and for me every single memory is special and I wouldn't change it even if I had a chance. Some are filled with joy, some with sorrow, some taught me some lessons and some made me regret. But no matter how good or bad these memories are, they are my roots which moulded me into what I am today. Memories are the one thing that people cannot rob us of. They are like wisps. So many years, so many days, so many thoughts, so much time. It fits together like a puzzle and yet there are pieces are missing here and there like a person's childhood. Childhood is probably one of the most interesting pieces of their life even though it has more than its fair share of gaps and confusions. There are times, we always look back to our lives, to happy days when our young hearts were free from the stress and the anxieties of our more mature years. Memories leads us back to our childhood home, the happiest hours, when we were young and free from remorse and the clouds of sin. Memories is the diary of our souls, where all the pleasures, pains, stress and troubles of childhood, youth, maturity, and riper years is printed; where a chart on which our track is marked, pointing out all the dangers we have safely travelled through on our voyage to eternity....

Nt1110 Analysis 1: Memory Cost

...Memory Cost By Frank Bolton Phillips NT1110 Friday 6p.m. This is to help me discover and appreciate the difference in the cost of RAM and ROM in today’s market as well as where is where it came from and where it is going. It is easy to find information on this subject as everyone seems to want in on the computer boom and profit from the ever growing demand for faster computers with huge memory. Ten years ago you would have found yourself spending over $2,000 to get just 1GB of RAM. As computer manufacturers recoup cost of R&D, the prices start to drop. Today it would only cost around $20 to purchase the same 1GB of DDR3 providing considerable savings over a decade ago. What appears to be the best deal for the money is 2GB on RAM which runs around $40 and slows enough memory to run most applications. There are other types of memory available to all of us if you’re willing to pay the price of admission. For example, some of the more exotic types of RAM can still run hundreds, even thousands of dollars. For instance, I found Super Talent 1TB STT RAID DRIVE GS RAID0 for $4,815.00 on Memory Suppliers.com. They also offer iRam 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 SDRAM PC2-5300 667MHz for $119.00. I find this is a very nice web site that is easy to navigate through and find and compare the memory you’re looking for. The following table I got from Archive Builders web site. It shows the growth to cost difference for 32 years. This was determined by the increase of the density of disks...

Memory

...The Power of Memory It never seizes to amaze me how different colors, tastes, smells, and sounds can take us back to an event in our lives long forgotten. Its astounding how we can recall events with such clarity, though sometimes our memories are tainted with the hue of the dominant emotion we may have felt at the time. We look at our present through the memories of our past experiences. Scanning through different stations on the radio, it seems like all the stations are playing the same songs. A particular tune catches my attention and I wait to hear the lyrics. Its Barbara Striesand singing one of her hits from the seventies, the song’s title is ‘memories’. Speaking of which, my mind drifts off to the time when I was four years old and unable to sleep at night, I had sneaked out of my room to see whether anyone was up, to find my parents sitting with dimmed lights, listening to this same song. I remember thinking then that they were being romantic, and I was not supposed to be there. Feeling left out; I quickly started to complain of a fake stomachache and how I needed someone to read me a story to be able to sleep. It was a fruitless endeavor, I was sent to bed - no story - just a lecture on how all the good children must be asleep and I was still up. I relate the story to my brother, who is complaining about why I’m listening to such ancient music and should put his ‘hip hop’ station on. He changes the station. My thoughts are rudely interrupted by a......

Memory

...Memory 1. Describe STM and give an example Short-term memory, also known as primary or active memory, is the information we are currently aware of or thinking about. In Freudian psychology, this memory would be referred to as the conscious mind. The information found in short term memory comes from paying attention to sensory memories. A good example would be to write down a spoken telephone number before it is forgotten. 2. Describe and give an example of LTM Long-term memory refers to the continuing storage of information. In Freudian psychology, long-term memory would be call the preconscious and unconscious. This information is largely outside of our awareness, but can be called into working memory to be used when needed. Some of this information is fairly easy to recall, while other memories are much more difficult to access. A good example would be recalling the date of your wedding anniversary or families birthdays’. 3. Describe the multi-store model of memory Multi-store Model of Memory: Atkinson & Shiffrin (1968) This model builds on the idea of three memory stores and tries to explain how they work together. Components Sensory Memory stores the incoming information from the senses. The model assumes that these are modality specific that is there is a separate store for each of the five senses. The store is very brief and the vast majority of information is lost here. Only information that is relevant or important is attended to and......

Memory

...Memory Summary There are three stages of memory. Encoding, storage, and retrieval. Encoding can be done in three ways: visual, sound, and the meaning of something. It refers to the process of transforming information into a form that can be entered and retained by the memory system. Encoding allows information that is from the outside world to reach our senses in the forms of chemical and physical stimuli. For example, to memorize the definition of a key term that appears on a textbook page, you would visually encode the patterns of lines and dots on the page as meaningful words that could be retained by your memory. Storage has to deal with how long information is retained, where it’s stored and how much can be retained. It’s the process of retaining information in memory so that it can be used at a later time. Retrieval involves recovering the stored information so that we are consciously aware of it. Although, some retrieval attempts may be effortless due to the type of information being retained. It’s getting the information out. It also has to deal with STM and LTM. STM is stored and retrieved sequentially. LTM is stored and retrieved by association. Understanding how your memory works can help you learn by knowing which type of learning makes the things you have learned stick in your mind. Once you know this you can continue learning the way you feel helps you remember it. Psychologist have come up with thirteen steps in order to enhance your memory to retain more......

Memory Cost

...The price and capacities of RAM and hard drive storage have come a long way in the past 30 years. Take for instance, in 1981 an 18MB hard drive cost $2500, today a 1TB hard drive costs $150. In 1990 RAM costs were $50 per MB and today one can purchase 2GB RAM for approximately $50. that there is a strong exponential correlation in the capacity vs cost ratio, where r=0.9916. During the last 30 years the capacity per unit cost ratio has nearly doubled approximately every 14 months. The regression equation is given by: Many TB+ drives have become available which recently broken the $0.10/GB boundary, whilst the next milestone being $0.01/GB or $10/TB. If historical trends continue, then 10 years from now the cost per GB of hard drive capacity will become $0.0000351 per GB or $0.0351 per TB. For $100, one could purchase a 2,849TB drive 10 years from now, based on the analysis of historical trends. Although 120 PB drives are currently available in the server and super computing market, consumer grade hard drives aren’t available in these sizes, as the physical size and cost per PB is too great for the marketability in the consumer market. Based on historical trends, one could forecast the availability of a consumer level 100TB hard drive in the next five years. It must be noted all figures pertain to magnetic storage, solid state storage has been omitted for the sake of brevity....

The cost of hard drive space in 1980 was around 286 dollars per bit and today it is also just a very small fraction of a penny. According to Moore’s law the number of components in integrated circuits will double every year and a half since the invention of integrated circuits in 1958. In 2010 the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors believed that growth would slow down by the end of 2013 which would put the growth to doubling every three years instead of every year and a half.

Memory

...Learning and Memory Humans are continually learning, storing and coding raw information that is sent to us from our sensory registers from the outside world. Because of such an overload of stimuli thrown at us, it is vital and necessary to learn as infants and throughout our lives how to store and process this information. We learn to pay attention to some material, while other data is filtered out immediately. Researchers have spent enormous amounts of time studying the different types of memory: short-term memory, long-term memory, procedural memory and declarative memory. Because the only way we survive, evolve and learn new skills and talents is by developing our minds and adapting to the ever changing demands of life. What scientists have discovered is that learning requires attention, coding and storing of past memories and experiences. In order to live healthy and happy lives, we can stimulate and encourage learning throughout our entire lifetime from infancy to late adulthood providing that our brain is biologically healthy and intact. Most important, scientists are now studying what simple changes can be made to stave off such diseases such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s. The only kind of memory that the world has ever been able to agree on is that one which saves occurrences from the past. Even more limiting is a methodical notion in which the procedure that creates memory (learning) is identified by the modification of the actions of an individual who...
