Cloud computing and big data analysis will require the development of ever more performant computing systems. We can imagine what these high-performance computers might look like as early as 2035.
Today, our phones are already perfectly capable of running any app or mobile game, and of streaming video. Our laptops perfectly support us at work or at home. Will we need ever more-powerful computer chips 10-20 years from now? Yes! The need for high-performance computing will continue to increase.
In 2035, we will still produce massive amounts of data, without deleting any. Think of pictures and videos posted on social media – in whatever form – and the huge amount of data processed by companies such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon. Wearables and ingestibles will continuously monitor our health, and combine the data with our genetic imprint. Add to this the large amount of data generated by emerging IoT applications such as autonomous cars, smart buildings and smart cities. Most of this data will be processed and stored in the cloud. This can only be sustained through increasingly more performant computing and memory solutions.
