Randomness and uncertainty are rearing their heads in surprising and contradictory ways in nanometer technologies. On the one hand, uncertainty and variability is becoming a dominant factor in the design of integrated circuits, and on the other hand, algorithms based on randomness are beginning to show great promise in solving large scale problems. This paper overviews both aspects of this issue.
