How does science work? And what's all this about quantum mechanics?

Where is computing headed?

Post by Philosophy Explorer »

As you may know, Moore's Law is slowing down (where the number of transistors you can pack onto a chip is running into a roadblock). However the age of quantum computing is about to take off (i.e. quantum supremacy) and it will only accelerate, as per stories and articles (google quantum computing to learn more about this exciting field).

Do you have any expectations?

Well, since we squander the computing power we now have on bullshit, I'm not too optimistic about our future. It'll probably just end up with us getting more tweets from Trump.
