Compuberty: Three Emerging Categories of Computing

Computers are going through puberty. They are becoming adults, devices that have physical presence in the public realm. When the transformation is complete we will have three classes of computing:

  • Personal Computing - value is created at the scale of people
    • smartphones
    • tablets
    • laptops
    • desktops
    • televisions
    • car interiors
    • hospital rooms
    • living rooms
  • Cloud Computing - value is created at the scale of global communities
    • social networks
    • big data
  • Autonomous Computing - value is created at the scale of Newtonian physics
    • wireless sensor networks
    • drones
    • autonomous cars
    • actuators
    • control systems
