In the last two decades advances in computing technology, from processing speed to network capacity and the internet, have revolutionized the way scientists work. From sequencing genomes to monitoring the Earth's climate, many recent scientific advances would not have been possible without a parallel increase in computing power – and with revolutionary technologies such as the quantum computer edging towards reality, what will the relationship between computing and science bring us over the next 15 years?

Finally got around to reading the Nature.com 2020 – Future of Computing report. Given they are offering free access to the report it is worth checking out. Still mulling over the below quote from Stephen H. Muggleton.

There is a severe danger that increases in speed and volume of data generation could lead to decreases in comprehensibility.
