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.
