Fifth Generation computers are still under development. This generation is based on the concept of artificial intelligence. In simple terms the computers of this generation are supposed to behave like humans. The principles of parallel processing (many processors are grouped together) and superconductivity are being used to develop devices that respond to human languages and will have the ability to apply previously gained knowledge to execute a task. They will let them make decisions of their own to execute a task. Some applications like voice recognition, visual recognition are a step in this very direction.
Salient features of fifth generation computers:
1. Parallel Processing
3. Artificial Intelligence
