    At least the article doesn't mention d-wave. Which is something for a site like NBF who was pretty far up their butt.

    Wow. And conceived by a bunch of very smart Irishmen.

    Well I'll tell you that in my 45 years in the computer industry the smartest engineer I ever met was Irish. His name was John Donoghue.

    "This line of new technology should enable new autonomous devices that make life easier for everyone, and enable humans to do more.", that should read, "enable humans to do less".

    Sorry, but I can't get from the bit about plasmons making microprocessors run faster:

    "While most advanced electronic devices are powered by photonics – which involves the use of photons to transmit information – photonic elements are usually large in size and this greatly limits their use in many advanced nanoelectronics systems. '

    No they're not--they use charge carriers (electrons and holes)--and features are on the nanometer scale. What this has to do with making a 1,000 times faster microprocessor doesn't seem to make any sense.

    "This sounds like another step on the road to more generalised artificial intelligence (AI) as opposed to systems that can only excel in one function."

    It might sound like it, but it is not.
