A brief history of Computers – Your Data Center in 2025.

Innovations in computer hardware are driven by the application of knowledge from physics. Advances in understanding matter are leading to new technologies for our data centers.

But this is a nonlinear process. Breakthroughs have been triggered, for example, with the development of integrated circuits that advance understanding of the behavior of semiconductors at the microscopic level.

Now we have come to know quantum physics as an information game. This means radical breakthroughs for our computer systems, both hardware and software, because information is physical!

Generally understood, the fact of a classical bit manifested as an electric potential between atoms and electrons instead of electric currents provided us with non-volatile memory modules.

More recently, our attention has turned to the change in information within microscopic circuits themselves, which provide us with qubits, or quantum bits.

Since qubits represent pure information, we can compute them in our way from the beginning, not only in native quantum computers, but also with a novel technology,

hybrid quantum computing. This talk introduced the audience to this new type of computer architecture and demonstrated initial implementations.

By 2025, George Gesek predicts, every high-performance computing center will run on nothing but hybrid quantum computers.
