Building satellites in the future could be as easy as sending robots packed with hardware into orbit, if a new project from Darpa takes off.

How Quantum Computers and Machine Learning Will Revolutionize Big Data - Wired Science

How Quantum Computers and Machine Learning Will Revolutionize Big Data - Wired Science | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Sharrock's insight:

There are two major ideas here. They herald a new period in the knowledge era...if these two or three hurdles are overcome: 1) breakthroughs in techniques to analyze the semantics of natural language

2) data integration--"Google’s Alon Halevy believes that the real breakthroughs in big data analysis are likely to come from integration — specifically, integrating across very different data sets. “No matter how much you speed up the computers or the way you put computers together, the real issues are at the data level,” he said. For example, a raw data set could include thousands of different tables scattered around the Web, each one listing crime rates in New York, but each may use different terminology and column headers, known as “schema.” A header of “New York” can describe the state, the five boroughs of New York City, or just Manhattan. You must understand the relationship between the schemas before the data in all those tables can be integrated."

3) the invention of the quanturm computer (jury is still out on current D-Wave Computer)

 

What will the new age be called? I think it whill have something to do with multidisciplinary combinations and integration and collaboration. The ability to draw similar/analogous data from every kind of database is beyond cryptography, but the "semantic web" doesn't seem to capture the world changing power of this ability.
