Computing, Data, and Intelligence

Contemporary breakthroughs in science and technology are making possible a whole range of unconventional computing concepts that were previously unfeasible. Enabling technologies such as miniaturization, nanotechnology, and genetic engineering are opening the doors to unusual computing paradigms that many may find surprising. This chapter explores some alternative types of computing and then delves into the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

Quantum Computing

The Dawn of Q

At its core, modern computing is built on binary code: complex combinations of ones and zeros that code into almost all of the digital data that exists today. The age of digital computing dawned with the development of metal–oxide–silicon ...
