The above photo shows what moving just 5mb of data looked like in 1956. Absurd, isn’t it? Needless to say, there have been plenty of advancements in the last 50 years relating to how we handle and process data. Computers have moved from great, bulky, warehouse-filling machines to sleek, paper-like devices. Mobiles have entered the mainstream and become tools containing more processing power than what NASA had at its disposal when sending the first astronauts to the moon. And even in spite of how quickly these changes have come about, the last 5 years in particular have seen an unparalleled rate of change that is set to revolutionise the future of computing.
