Silicon Nanophotonics = speedy chips


Hat’s off to IBM for what could be a milestone in building faster computers.  They are making great progress with Silicon Nanophotonics – moving data using light pulses.   This technology could speed up current wired chips by a factor of 100, bringing supercomputer power to your … desktop computer.

Kurzweil is smiling about this, and this is yet another indication we are likely to have conscious computers by about 2020.   Then, everything is going to change in ways we cannot even imagine.
