7. Quantum computing
Instead of using data encoded into binary digits, quantum computers use properties like superposition and entanglement to perform operations on data at an incredibly fast rate. Google and NASA have already announced the launch of a Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab, replete with functioning quantum computer that will be used to evolve machine learning [Source: Google Research, 2013]. The enormous processing power of these computers could significantly reconfigure political, business, economic and social norms within the next fifteen to twenty years.
