The future of computers shouldn’t be confused with the type of computers we use today. Remember, the brain itself is a type of wetware computer. The future will consist of computers of all types, from artificial brains, to medical implants in our bodies, to quantum and/or organic supercomputers running our entire infrastructure. This certainly raises the importance of people learning how to code. After all, if you can’t control a computer, how will you be able to control your life in the age of computers? Welcome to the future!
