Michio Kaku on the future of computing


Back in 1960, a state of the art computer cost millions of dollars, weighed thousands of pounds, and was slower (by an order of magnitude) than an average chip in today’s cellphones. Physicist and science popularizer Michio Kaku (whose BBC series “Visions of the Future” is awesome, btw) breaks down where computing is going in the next ten years. Computers will be ubiquitous, mostly invisible, and profoundly shaping and transforming our civilization. Sounds good to me.
