So a mere mechanical computer will work faster than the electronic whirlwinds of
today. Electronic nanocomputers will likely be thousands of times faster than
electronic microcomputers—perhaps hundreds of thousands of times faster, if a ...
Neural synapses respond to signals in thousandths of a second; experimental
electronic switches respond a hundred million times faster (and nanoelectronic
switches will be faster yet). Neural signals travel at under one hundred meters
