The Future of Quantum Computing

Today’s robots are less intelligent than cockroaches, but advances in quantum computing—transferring information using atoms rather than silicon—could revolutionize the field of AI.

Every Wednesday, Michio Kaku will be answering reader questions about physics and futuristic science.  If you have a question for Dr. Kaku, just post it in the comments section below and check back on Wednesdays to see if he answers it.


Today, Dr. Kaku addresses a question posed by Antonio Amorelli: Will quantum computing make self-aware AI more likely?
