Our Future Is Now - The Future of Computing


Published on

The evolution of computing platforms, with the interaction of hardware, software, and interfaces, is extending the reach of the original formulation of Moore's law. 3D chips, quantum computing, speech recognition, gesture recognition, conversational interfaces are appearing, and create a necessary premise to the next generation of smart objects constituting the Internet of Things.

This presentation was delivered on May 3, 2012, in Milan, at the "Our Future Is Now" conference held by the Singularity University, with the organization and sponsorship of Intesa Sanpaolo.
