## TL;DR

- about
**half**of algorithm families had YoY improvements that were**equal to or larger**than the much-touted gains from**Mooreâ€™s Law** - The single biggest change that the authors observed came when an algorithm family transitioned from
**exponential**to**polynomial**complexity. - Hardware improvement from Mooreâ€™s Law happens
**smoothly**over time, and for algorithms the gains come in**steps**that are usually large but infrequent.
