The Fifth Generation

Defining the fifth-generation computers is somewhat difficult because the field is still in its infancy. The computers of tomorrow would be characterized by Artificial Intelligence (At). An example of Al is Expert Systems. Computers could be developed which could think and reason in much the same way as humans. Computers would be able to accept spoken words as input (voice recognition).

Many advances in the science of computer design and technology are coming together to enable the creation of fifth generation computers. Two such advances are parallel processing where many CPUs work as one and advance in superconductor technology which allows the flow of electricity with little or no resistance, greatly improving the speed of information flow.
