On the machine side, intelligence is increasing exponentially and should do so for the forseable future [1]. Not only are the number of information processing units multiplying rapidly, but the relative computing power of each one is increasing exponentially too.

On top of that algorithms and programming techniques are improving all the time to make more effective use of the hardware, as are distributed computing techniques which are able to make use of idle processor time between connected units.

The ever increasing sophistication and capability of computers mean that progressively higher-level tasks being automated.
