Today, with the rapid development of computer technology, if someone asks you what will happen to your future PC? I believe that everyone can easily point out a few points, for example, the processing speed of computers will become faster, the functions of computers will become more powerful and perfect, of course, today, with the development of network technology, computers support wireless broadband. Network technology is also essential. However, as long as we observe it carefully, it is not difficult to find out that in fact, in the past more than 20 years, several well-known PC manufacturers around the world, such as DELL, IBM, Apple, etc., can be said to be innovative in PC. No progress.
To say that, the most obvious change is that the size of the PC has become more and more petite, and the processing power of the CPU has become stronger and stronger. Other aspects, such as computer architecture and design methodology, have not changed at all, almost the same as the PC architecture of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs in the past, without any substantial progress. In addition, the application of PCs is still limited to a few limited aspects such as “word processing”, “form production” and “graphic design”. The only change worth mentioning is the use of “email” and “timely information” brought about by the emergence and advancement of network technology.
However, with the advent of the information age, people’s requirements for computer performance are increasing day by day, and the above situation may be over. Experts predict that PC technology will undergo revolutionary changes in the next 10 years. Especially with the rapid development of network technology, some tasks traditionally handled by PCs will be transferred to the network for processing, which also puts higher requirements on computer technology.
However, “technical bottlenecks” have become the main difficulties currently facing PC manufacturers, such as a new type of personal computing methods. So in a sense, if you want to break these technical barriers, these manufacturers must develop more advanced micro-processing technology and more advanced computer storage technology. To this end, computer research and development personnel in various countries are stepping up the development of new types of computers. The computer will produce a quantitative or qualitative leap from the transformation of the architecture to the device and technological revolution. In the near future, new types of quantum computers, photonic computers, biological computers, and nano-computers will enter our lives in the 21st century and will spread throughout society.
First, The Development Of Computer Technology
Since the birth of the world’s first electronic computer in 1946, the development of electronic computer technology has gone through more than half a century. From the first generation of tube computers to the sixth generation of neural network computers that are being developed, the size of computers is getting smaller, but performance, speed and storage are constantly improving. However, human pursuits are endless, and scientists have not stopped studying better, faster, and more powerful computers. From the current research direction, the future computer will develop in the following aspects.
(1) Specialization in work. People who have used computers know that not every work needs a high-performance PC to complete, and sometimes even using a high-performance computer to do a simple thing can cause trouble. Because high performance will bring adverse effects such as high energy consumption and high heat generation. Therefore, it can be predicted that the future computer will be very different in performance and appearance depending on the work that everyone is engaged in. Specially-designed PCs will have dedicated equipment to increase our productivity. In fact, if you pay close attention to it now, this change is happening around us.
For example, cash registers in large supermarkets, PCs selling lottery tickets, and bank terminals, etc., are all gradually developed from general-purpose PCs in order to improve the efficiency and cost of a certain job. Perhaps in the near future, such a trend will appear in our family life, such as using the “family smart computer” as the home appliance control center, for us to control the home’s lights, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, etc. Our home has become a smart home.
(2) The system is intelligent. With the increasing power of the computer, it is foreseeable that the civilian computer in the future may begin to have a certain degree of intelligence to help us deal with the trivialities of daily life, even before we have done what we want to do. The chores of living robots allow people to free up more time for work, study, communication, and entertainment.
As everyone knows, in today’s society, electronic pets have become more and more popular among younger generations. This is not only because electronic pets are more convenient to feed than real kittens, but it can also be constantly updated, and it is easier to communicate with the owner, even simulate multiple pets, and communicate with computers. and many more. These advantages will allow electronic pets to replace some of the real pets and become new partners for future humans.
(3) Environmental protection in design. Environmental protection and energy conservation are the themes of today’s times. The development of society should also be based on the premise of protecting the environment and saving energy. The computer industry is no exception. We know that as the overall performance of computers increases, so does the energy consumption; and now computers play an increasingly important role in people’s family life, and the time it runs will change. It will take longer. Therefore, in order to prevent the computer from becoming the most expensive electric appliance in the home, the technicians also tried various ways to reduce the energy consumption of the computer. In this case, specialized computers like those mentioned above appeared. It not only greatly increases the efficiency of the computer, but also enables the low-performance hardware system to have professional functions to reduce energy consumption. In addition, computers can be significantly reduced in energy consumption by adopting new architectures, such as “quantum”, “photon”, and “nano” instead of existing silicon-based computers. The second-largest consumer of power consumption, the display system, will no longer become a major consumer of electricity because of the popularity of displays such as LCDs and OLEDs.
(4) Exchange of humanity. As a tool for future work and life of human beings and as an intelligent control center for families, computers need to communicate with users continuously to better serve users. This requires the communication between the computer and the person to be humanized, so that the user is really willing to use the computer. We use the phrase “the computer will become a product that can communicate with users and express emotions such as warmth, anger and anger” with the vice president of Microsoft Fuchuan of the United States. I want to explain the development of the future computer. I want to be more appropriate.
In order to achieve this goal, it is conceivable that the future interaction between the computer and the user will be diversified, and the user can not only control through writing, but also through language control, and even though the eyes. In these simple ways, the user is able to control the computer and complete the work.
And because with the improvement of computer intelligence, most of them can automatically select the process of operation, and the process does not require people to participate, so the interface of the software is more and more simple, and it is as simple as using home appliances or mobile phones. Users do not need to carry out special study or training, even the elderly and children can use it freely. The development of information technology will make people communicate with computers just like people. People using computers will become more natural. The result is: a computer
