Ubiquitous computing has triggered an avalanche of data that is beyond human processing capabilities. AI technologies have emerged as the only viable way to turn this data into information. As more computing produces more data, more computing power is needed to power AI. Next generation AI will soon look to planetary-scale computing systems to further fuel AI’s computational requirements. We’ll examine some of the technologies, such as neuromorphic and quantum computing, that will unlock the next step in performance that is intractable with current computing systems.
