We easily get excited by the "quantum buzz". The following article reminds us how classical computing evolution continues to be strong (something we touched on at the latest Quantum London Stammtisch).
We already hear of experiments where the two technologies are used together to efficiently solve different aspects of the same problem.
Will we ultimately see a converge of the two "worlds"?
Exciting times ahead!
Calling the end of Moore’s Law for classical computing is a bit of a tradition ... but to date, prophets of doom have been premature... ...with some clever tweaks “we could get chips that are a hundred times faster in 10 years.” These technologies (including reduction in scale, 3D architectures, new transistor designs, software tweaks) are an evolution of the same general technology in use today. That is, we don’t need quantum computing or nanotube transistors to augment or replace silicon chips yet...
