Sixth Generation of computer
The period of Sixth generation is 2000-till date. In the Sixth generation, ULSI technology became UULSI (Ultra2 Large Scale Integration) technology, resulting in the production of microprocessor chips having ten million electronic components. This generation is based on parallel processing hardware,Nano technology, AI (Artificial Intelligence) software. AI is an emerging branch in computer science, which interprets the means and method of making computers think like human beings. All the high-level languages like C#, Asp.net, Php, Android, Mobile computing etc., are used in this generation. The people can do every work by the help of computer. Even people can also cook the food the help of computer. Each and every work people can do by the help of computer. The computer come in the pocket or palm of the hand. AI programmers started with basic algorithms for reasoning and progressed to using probability and economic theories to help create the ability to solve more complex issues. Advances in the field of fuzzy logic have introduced the ability to solve problems where there is no clear answer of right or wrong. While more complex problem solving is possible, the amount of computing power necessary expands exponentially when the solution is difficult. Research is ongoing to find ways to make problem solving more efficient and less cost prohibitive. In the military, AI has helped enhance simulators so that training soldiers for unexpected problems that arise in different peacekeeping missions around the world. Artificial Intelligence is also prevalent in many of the world’s spy networks to help determine the probability of certain actions occurring in highly volatile parts of the world.
In the automobile industry, robots are used in manufacturing, but AI has crept into the vehicles themselves. From global positioning systems to warning a driver of a potential hazard in front of them, artificial intelligence is present. Some cars can even apply the break or swerve the vehicle out of harm’s way if necessary. Artificial intelligence has also assisted in the development of voice recognition software (VAR). While unable to understand the words, VAR has allowed people who have disabilities to speak into a microphone and see the words appear on the screen. Although people need to speak slowly and clearly in order to work properly, and it is not 100% accurate, VAR is also now on many hand held devices. Being able to surf the web or send a text has become easier than ever, and more advancements are on the way.
