Sarnath, Varanasi, March 7 (UNI) Former president Dr A P J Abdul Abdul Kalam today predicted a revolution in personal computer (PCs) in the next decade.

''In future, most of the computers would be micro seized, bearable and have wireless communication with each other,'' Dr Kalam said addressing an international conference on 'Buddhism and World Culture' at the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies here.

He added moderately priced PCs capable of performing about billion calculations per second would be able to perform about a trillion calculations per second in the next 10-yrs.

''It is also predicted that by 2019, the computational ability of an ordinary PC would exceed the capability of human brain. By 2029, the capability of a normal PC would be around 1000 times that of the human brain,'' the eminment scientist informed.

He said, ''My view will always be that the creatve mind of the humans would always be superior to the most powerful computers.'' UNI JL-ATI YA RK1615
