Ubiquitous computing has triggered an avalanche of knowledge that’s past human processing capabilities. AI applied sciences have emerged as the one viable option to flip this knowledge into info. As extra computing produces extra knowledge, extra computing energy is required to energy AI. Next era AI will quickly look to planetary-scale computing techniques to additional gasoline AI’s computational necessities. We’ll study a number of the applied sciences, resembling neuromorphic and quantum computing, that may unlock the subsequent step in efficiency that’s intractable with present computing techniques.
