1) have you had a look at current system architecture, and whether

Software is another bottleneck, for sure. However, don't take hardware for
granted. You need dramatic shifts in both. Molecular (evolvable) hardware
and GA/ANNs to match, plus a few hybrid systems (ANN/GA is lousy for
crypto, for instance).
