3 Tech Advances That Will Change Pcs Forever
Great mathematicians and logicians of the olden times have brought brilliant advances to computing. Modern computer technology has replaced humans in arduous tasks and eliminated the possibility of error. Computers can perform operations with great precision and at very high speeds. With this advance in technology for the elderly also comes the bitter taste that perhaps these technologies will only create further divide between the generations — outsourcing love and care to a machine.
Simultaneously, multipurpose artificial intelligence and machine learning technology may dramatically alter or make redundant a wide range of white collar jobs. A number of researchers have attempted to quantify the extent to which these new advancements might impact the future of work. On the other hand, others have argued that the risk these technologies pose to human employment is overblown and that they will not impact jobs in large numbers for many years, if ever. Computers can already perform individual operations orders of magnitude faster than humans can, Farmer said; meanwhile, the human brain remains far superior at parallel processing, or performing multiple operations at once. For most of the past half-century, engineers made computers faster by increasing the number of transistors in their processors, but they only recently began “parallelizing” computer processors.
The idea of the proliferation of cyborgs, hybrids of humans and machines, has never been so alive as it is today. Always having the cell phone next to us in our hands, as a complement to the arm, in the pocket, and even under the pillow at bedtime is a strong indication that we have become accustomed to having a much more intimate relationship with machines. What can still represent taboos is the level of intimacy and the emotions we share with machines. What quantum computers need in order to realize their full potential is not just smart scientists who are capable of programming them, but also strategic business leaders who are capable of envisioning the brilliant use cases where they can add value. Like autonomous vehicles, delivery drones, self-learning robots and nanoscale sensors, quantum computing is the kind of technology that sounds like it belongs in the world of tomorrow. We can choose the molecular design of our fruits and vegetables, travel faster and farther and stave off life-threatening diseases with personalized medical care.
In 2019, Google declared Sycamore quantum computer with a 53-qubit processor was able to solve a problem that a regular computer could handle in ten thousand years. Intel has installed a quantum processor on a silicon chip, and the IBM quantum processor cloud platform is getting available to developers and programmers. It’s clear to me that quantum computing can serve the greater good through an open-source, collaborative research and development approach that I believe will prevail once wider access to this technology is available. I’m confident crowd-sourcing quantum computing applications for the greater good will win.
With a quantum-powered internet, a user can share a pair of particles to send a quantum message. This connection is so secure that the message can’t be copied or traced. In fact, according to Wired Magazine, if someone tries to intercept the message, it gets destroyed before anyone has a chance to access it. The data transfer dynamic we know today is different from the one in quantum technology.
