Introduction



In our power point we will cover the future of computers and
computer technology. We will also cover
Moore’s Law,
Artificial Intelligence, DNA computers, Quantum
computers, and Optical computers.



The Future

In the future there will be flying cars, cool new laptops, and new portable
computers. There will also be new versions of the ipod.

Moore’s Law


Moore’s law was adopted after Gordon Moore observed it in
1965. Gordon Moore was a co
-
founder of Intel. The observation was the
number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled
every year since the integrated circuit was invented. This trend would
continue for the future is what Gordon Moore predicted. The pace slowed
down in the next couple years. Approximately 18 months data doubles.
This is the definition Moore’s law currently. Moore’s law is supposed to
hold for at least 2 decades.


Artificial Intelligence




Artificial Intelligence is a scientific branch. It helps machines
find solutions to very hard problems in a human
-
like way. This branch
involves borrowing human intelligence characteristics. Then applying
them in a computer friendly way as algorithms. .Artificial Intelligence is
also know as Al. Al is associated with Computer Science. Also it has
important links such as Biology, Maths, Psychology, Cognition,
Philosophy, and more.


DNA

Computers


A DNA computer is a molecular computer. It works
biochemically. DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid

. DNA
computer use DNA strands to compute. This causes chain
reactions. These chain reactions are a kind of simultaneous
computing or parallel processing. They correct any problem they
are given. They go threw the possible solutions and find the right
solution.

Quantum Computers



Quantum computers involve quantum particles as a
replacement for the bit of today's computers.

A theory of quantum
began 20 years go. The man’s name was Paul Benioff. He was a
physicist at the Argonne National Laboratory. He used the concept
of the turning machines as a model for the quantum computer.

Optical Computers



An Optical computer is a computer that uses
holograms for compact data storage and laser beams for
connections. An Optical computers is also called a
photonic computer. These computers also use light beams.
Optical computers allow light to be used to do
computations.
An
Optical computer is faster than a regular
computer. Computers that use light are also cheaper.
These computers, by not using magnetic parts do not have
as much electromagnetic interference. Finally, optical
computers have superior storage ability.




Conclusion


In conclusion, the future will have more technology, and
everything will be more high tech. Scientists are still working on the
Artificial Intelligence, DNA computers, Quantum computers, and
Optical computers. Some time in the future we will have this
technology and life as we know it will be changed forever.
