Interesting article. Think we may have to wait a little while before this kind of technology becomes available, certainly longer than 2011! May even hold the key to artificial intelligence since the brain also works at quantum level.

You might also be interested to see what Gordon Moore (he of Moore's Law) has to say on the subject of nano tech and on AI click here scroll down to the para 'Integrated Circuit Lives'

yes interesting but the programme I saw last night had the people that are working on it and they have the means but have yet to find the application.Also mentioned was the fact that you can only go so far with the current technology in computers and storage and that time is fast approaching.

So enter stage left perpendicular recording. Clearly let's remember Gordon Moore as repeated in the article famously got things way wrong about the uptake of home PC's, however I do think his comments re AI in particular are very pertinent.

Its always struck me that we are on a hiding to nothing trying to create a simulation or whatever of human consciousness when clearly a machine intelligence will be different, imagine never been hungry, not needing money or having a sex drive and so forth and your world view would radically start to alter!
