Thermodynamics of computation: A quest to find the cost of running a Turing machine

Turing machines are widely believed to be universal, in the sense that any computation done by any system can also be done by a Turing machine. In a new paper, researchers present their work exploring the energetic costs of computation within the context of Turing machines.
