The Kurzweil interview: More comments on the "exponential growth" of computational power

Abstract:
And we've continued the exponential growth, both with genetic data and with every other aspect of biology, and it's also true of reverse-engineering the human brain, and this ultimately will solve problems that you wouldn't think are remotely related to information, like the energy crisis, because we'll use nanotechnology, which is a form of information technology, basically reorganizing matter and energy at the molecular level, to create extremely inexpensive, efficient, solar panels that can capture enough sunlight to completely eliminate fossil fuels, which I believe we'll do within 20 years. Because we actually have 10,000 times more sunlight that falls on the earth than we actually need to meet all of our energy needs.
