Question details

At a recent seminar, you learn that your colleagues in the astronomy department have gained access to new radio telescopes that will drastically increase the amount of data they can collect. In this seminar, these scientists are excited about how this data wil significantly improve their predictive models. You politely ask a question about their ability to process all of this new data, and they assure you that they have made all of the necessary hardware improvements to accommodate this new technology. In a short email, help your colleagues understand that faster processors and more hard drives cannot make up for inefficient algorithms and data structures. Try and convince them of the value of asymptotic analysis, and how based on the result of that analysis they may need to also improve their algorthms and data structures.
