    However, network speeds like this are still decades away. The future of supercomputing most likely lies with grids though, due to the difference in efficiency. The future of supercomputers will be able to perform complex calculations that we cannot imagine as humans. Experts believe by 2023 supercomputers will reach speeds up to one exaflop (Clifton, 2012). An exaflop is approximately one quintillion floating operations per second. Supercomputers with speeds like this would be a thousand times faster than the supercomputers we have today. Once this speed is reached scientists believe these Exascale supercomputers would be able to simulate thought processing of a human brain. They would be able to map out the human brain and utilize it as a human would, when programmed correctly. An example of this in a practical sense would be a supercomputer that is a doctor. It would be able to bring expert-level answers to your questions. It would be able to hold a conversation like a human would, and it would also be able to explain literally anything you wanted to…
