  IBM shows 500 gigahertz chip
This super fast chip that runs at 350 gigahertz at regular room temperatures could be a boon to many assistive technologies. Voice recognition quality could improve tremendously with this kind of horsepower.
Artificial intelligence assistants would also benefit from two orders of magnitude in speed increases. They could provide a lot of aid in a variety of ways to all people but could most benefit people with learning disabilities in helping organize their lives. Anyone with difficulties might feel more comfortable asking a computer questions that won't lose patience with them, criticize, gossip, or mock them. Wouldn't lots of people like that?
Text to speech could improve enough to understand context and even read with natural emphasis and changing tone.
Despite the fact that this is a hardware advancement, the software will be the final measure in these advancements. - IBM shows 500 gigahertz chip
