Bill Gates says it is possible that in six to 10 years "cloud computing will offer super-computation by using quantum."
He notes this achievement could help address important scientific challenges, such as materials and catalyst design.
According to Gates, quantum computing could help users analyze massive volumes of data faster than can currently be done with processor-based computers.
He also says straight virtual reality (VR) may give way to hybrid VR/augmented-reality (AR) systems, noting "VR is the extreme case of AR when nothing from the real world gets mixed in. It can be tricky if you are walking around that you might run into things."
Gates says he understands why some experts see the need to regulate artificial intelligence, warning "when a few people control a platform with extreme intelligence it creates dangers in terms of power and eventually control."
In addition, Gates envisions the expansion of software's utility for users. "Eventually, the software will understand what you should pay attention to by knowing the context and learning about your preferences," he predicts.
