computing

The aspect of the future has always been something extremely fascinating to a vast majority of us out there. After all, we are eager to see what it will hold for us in particular when it comes down to our needs and wants in general. Then again, Moore’s law has stated that the sheer computing power of a microprocessor will end up doubling every two years. Since 2000, there have been enough studies detailing the potential of the increase of small and fast silicon technology on the whole. With every passing year, the industry keeps on finding more ways to pack more power into tinier chips.

Having said that, the overall future continues to be the substantial growth of computing services that will keep finding ways to redefine computing itself. And with amazing strides in technology in general, one can be sure that this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes down to sheer capability with regard to modern computers. Here are the top four emerging technologies that will certainly keep computing performances at an all-time high:-

  • In-memory computing: The slowest part of processing has always been extracting the data from the hard disks to be stored to RAM. There is a lot of processor power wasted by waiting for the data to arrive. With in-memory computing, there is no such problem for anyone to be worried about.

    With in-memory computing, massive amounts of data are put into RAM, making it easier to be processed immediately. This will lead to the overall improvement of both costs and performance all across the board.

  • Graphene-based microchips: Being thicker and a lot more conductive than any other material out there, it has the unique capability to move electrons faster in a small space. By rolling Graphene up into tiny tubes or combining it with other materials, this will enable Moore’s Law to be extended for a couple of years. The entire realm of microchipping has already been undergoing a partial renaissance as of late.
  • Quantum computing: With conventional computing, a one or a zero is attached to every bit. Since quantum computing uses quantum bits, it will be able to solve highly complex problems with relative ease on the whole. Theoretically, this means that a quantum computer should be able to solve most problems, millions of times faster than currently possible. However, as of now, the main advancement has been the fact that a lot of the tech giants out there are being able to detect and protect themselves against errors.
  • Neuromorphic computing: This is basically the creation of a computer that is like the human brain, with the ability to process and learn from all the data as quickly as it is generated. As of now, there has been a step in the right direction with the development of certain chips that execute and train neural networks for deep learning. Although this will take some time until it becomes exactly like the vision most scientists have in mind.

All in all, one needs to understand that even though there are limits to exponential levels of growth in computing, this, by itself, does not mean that the end of computing is near. It will end up being much more further into the future than a lot of us realise today. No matter what your opinion of the topic may be, there are no two ways about this fact, whatsoever.

Finally, one needs to realise that although we may very well have approached the sheer limit of what silicon chips are able to achieve, the technology will certainly not stop accelerating. As far as being one of the driving forces of modern day living, that is unlikely to change anytime soon. With the emergence of new and more cutting-edge computing technologies related to artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology and virtual reality, its influences will only increase as all of those aspects push the limits of living itself.
