Computers in just 7 years may operate 100 times faster than the human brain

This article linked at Kurzweil's site suggest computers will continue their exponential growth in processing power in the coming years so that in less than a decade, they will operate at exaflop speeds (10^18 or a quintillion operations per second).

For computers to actually achieve strong AI (intelligence) on a level equalling or exceeding humans, dramatic improvements in AI software would also have to be made. Pure processing power in itself is not enough.
