Target: IBM’s Nanophotonic Technology
Target Cue: Describe the most important aspects of IBM’s nanophotonics technology, including its most significant known problem and a patentable solution, which is unknown to them–current time.
Monitor: Jerry Harthcock
I was blind to the target and the cue. The monitor (Jerry) was semi-frontloaded: He chose the target and created the cue.
IBM is developing a new technology, called nanophotonics, that combines optical communications with integrated circuits. This technology could revolutionize supercomputers and how they interconnect with memory and processors.
In this session, I perceive a technology that is capable of running at very high speeds. This technology felt so “revved up” that I began to feel a little nauseous. I perceived components that were linked together and gave off a sparkly, glowing illumination. This sparkling light seemed to act as a fuel source that was very clean as it moved through the system.
I received the following information: This specific technology is being tested for its capacity potential, despite the fact that the manufacturer knows that its capacity is limited. They realize that this type of technology could be considered primitive relative to the technology they are trying to create. Nevertheless, they are pushing this technology to its breaking point or trying to find the breaking point.
I was then tasked to find the chief obstacle and a solution to the capacity issue. In this movement, I perceived a power source that I could only describe as “tumbling” energy. This tumbling energy is “freeform,” whereas a unidirectional energy was perceived as being “like a fire hose”.
