Computers 100 years from now
Transcript of Computers 100 years from now
stated that the number of transistors
on a chip will double approx.
every two years Discussion Questions What do you think computers will be capable of 100 years from now?
What advances do you expect to see or hope to see in your lifetime? Humble Beginnings What lies in store? Computers 100 years from now A transistor is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals and electrical power. Quantum Mechanics Computers Cons Pros Scientists at ETH Zurich created a optical transistor one
molecule in size Must be 1 degree Kelvin to ensure system works Not practical Able to fit much more transistors, increasing speed Less heat than traditional transistors Computers that use the theory of quantum mechanics to perform big problems faster than a traditional computer Pros Cons Able to perform large problems
faster than traditional
computers Need to be kept at low temperatures
like the optic transistors DNA Computers Computers that use DNA to process information.
However, this is still under development Oh the good 'ol days! People who built computers
that took up whole buildings
and weighed more than
elephants would not have
imagined the technology
we have today, so who knows
whats in store? Any predictions? Supercomputers in
our bloodstream? Computers
everywhere? Skynet? Who knows, we'll just
have to wait and see! Ubiquitous Computing = Computers Everywhere Sci-Fi or real life? Video: http://computer.howstuffworks.com/computer-evolution.htm www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Cf7IL_eZ38 Based on the video,
you should definitely
invest in surface cleaners
