Today computers no longer occupy the entire room or the whole floor of the building, but the powerful hardware is still quite cumbersome by modern standards. However, IBM says it can fix the situation. During the IBM Think 2018 conference, the company announced the smallest computer in the world. The small chip is comparable in size to a salt granule, but it has the computing power of the 1990 x86 processor, although this is clearly not enough by today’s standards. According to company representatives, such a baby will be built of \Its capacity is enough to process, control and analyze the database. On board, the novelty has a power source, an analogue of RAM and a photosensor. The microcomputer also works with a new technology – blockchain. It can be used as a data source for application blocks. This will allow, for example, in logistics to track the movement of cargo, allowing you to detect problems on time. The computer is also capable of performing basic tasks of artificial intelligence, such as data distribution. While IBM engineers are testing only the first prototype, the company has already announced that over the coming years the new microcomputers will be used in everyday life in familiar objects and devices, as well as in trade.
