Answer by Desmond Last:
Without going into too much detail it will be parallel Processing. It is unfortunate that the development of Artificial Intelligence has taken the wrong direction.

Parallel processing is the next step for computer software and systems programmers. When developed it will result in less $ per byte and will be able to assist mankind in solving the problems of the World.
Something super computers, sequential processing and brain mapping will never be able to do.
