    Is this still about "outdating computers", or I'm imagining things...

Much development of this 'wonder' material has been done since the award to the two scientists from the University of Manchester, with the Nobel Peace prize in Physics in 2010. Now in 2013 a billion euros has been awarded by the European Union to researchers led by a Swedish professor. I believe it will have many uses in computer hardware design in the very near future.

    That's what I'm talking about - New materials for new science, is what will make puters go faster.

    A Computer can do basic math functions many times faster than we can do them in our heads, except for some Rain-Men, but a computer basically cannot THINK as fast as a human being can, and cannot think in the same way a human can. In a way, computers are not even as intelligent as Insects. It would take an unprecedented array of processors connected in parallel to get a computer to pass the Turing test.

    Voyager introduced this idea of "Bio-Neural BrainGel Packs" that allowed data to move as fast as it does in a biological entity. The Enterprise D's main computer gave birth to an Emergent Intelligence, using the whole ship to make itself.

    I believe these are things that can happen if we ever develop the technology.

    Yes.
    Has to be it, best conductivity at the thinnest level.

    Comon - Don't get religious about it hahaha.

    I saw a post that appeared to be one of those nonsense jokes and I just had to go for it.

    Actually, I was thinking in terms of half a duck. Kind of like biting into an apple and finding half a worm hahahaha

    OK Im done.

    Yah Graphene seems to be a good idea now we'll see if anything gets developed. It always takes years and years if at all for a new discovery to start showing up in products. Sometimes, Never - Did anyone ever see a commercial product utilising the Original Digital Element of the 50's - The Selectron Tube? Nope, cos they were HUGE, and a computer using them, could have eventually ended up being powerful, but using Power Tubes it would have been the size of the world to be useful.

    I have an article about them I saved from a 1947 Astounding.

    You're right.

    This time I guess they got the size-issue covered. Hopefully they don't find other reasons to let this fade away. Research still continues.

    So far, we've managed to live without Graphene computers.

    7 Days - But they can do 4 times as much as ONE ship. Carry more people, have more swimming pools, or collect more money from people on World Cruises. Concept is the same.
    Exactly my point for more cores and threads using them. That's mostly how and why supercomputers have hundreds and thousands of processors and cores but also have OS and programs that can make use of them. Neural networks with their intricate and intelligent job sharing can also play that game.

    That's why the human brain can't be duplicated, at least in size - The whole thing runs is parallel, and has more "cores" than any mechanical thinking machine can have at this point. What is the largest amount of cores and CPUS with multi cores that ever have been connected together at once - Hundreds? The Brain has Billions.

    I know there are currently experiments that allow people who are participating to connect their computers into a huge network that creates a vast parallel environment - Seti has something like this, the more computers in the network, the more work the telescope array can do. I used to do that, I had it turned on at night. But I havent done it ion a while.

    That may be how Intelligence will come to computers - "Skynet" could be in fact all of our home computers connected together all just running a few bits of code, the whole network becomes the intelligence. Throw a few Cray's into the network and it'll get smart.
