Comment Nice but... (Score 0, Redundant) 55

....the digital revolution is coming to and end. Moores Law has ended already and as a corollary the processing power of digital computers will be incremental. This is a big deal, because it throws future developments into doubt. Will we ever be able to handle the ever increasing processor needs of applications? A lot of people are depending on seemingly infinite processing power to get real AI. Is this ever going to be possible? It seems unlikely since we are seeing only processor improvements of 30% per generation at this point. Eventually those improvements are going to be even less as we hit the physical limitations of producing digital logic gates at ever smaller sizes. Too bad, but it was nice while it lasted!
