This Is Awesome, Monstrous, and Incredibly Frightening.

It’s pretty bleeping clear that quantum computing is about to revolutionize our perception again of really big honking data, and kick it up again to unimaginable heights, including AI. It’s possible that the singularity will come early for that reason, although I still think that the algorithmic questions will prevent it till roughly 2035–2040 anyway. But I warn you that all hell is about to break lose, as has never happened before in all of history. This is awesome, monstrous, and incredibly frightening — and most people have no idea what’s about to take place. BTW, since it’s Forbes (this is actually good for once) remember that it’s 2 pages, and you should read it all the way through.
