New ways of computing, not based on the further micro-miniaturisation of silicon circuits, are emerging as practical realities. The arrival of quantum computing is now a practical consideration for large companies and national and international bodies; and looking a little further ahead, data storage and processing based on the biological properties of DNA have been demonstrated in the laboratory.
Quantum computing is the new buzzword -- Richard Pinch has been looking into what computers will look like after quantum tech arrives and what newer ideas are still on the drawing board. Mathematics -- old, new and as yet unknown -- will be the key to developing and exploiting these new technologies.
