Brain power in a computer

Brain power in a computer

The processing power of computers is reahing that of the human brain.

estimates, among other predictions, that “in 2025, $1,000 should buy you a computer able to calculate at 10^16 cycles per second (10,000 trillion cycles per second), the equivalent processing speed of the human brain”.

Where will that, together with the pervasive connectivity, take us?
