The information age is over, welcome to the machine learning age


I first used a computer to do real work in 1985. I was in college in the Twin Cities, and I remember using the DOS version of Word and later upgrading to the first version of Windows. People used to scoff at the massive gray machines in the computer lab, but secretly they suspected something was happening. You could say the information age started in 1965 when Gordon Moore invented Moore's Law (a prediction about how transistors would double every year, later changed to every 18 months). It was all about computing power escalation, and he was right about the coming revolution.
