Nothing you said makes any sense. You said:
I will not be convinced until I see real documented scientific evidence that a quantum computer has run an algorithm faster than a classical
Honestly, who cares if you're convinced or not? That's not the point. The point is, people who are spending millions of dollars on these quantum
computers are convinced because they actually see the computer doing calculations faster than a classical computer can do them. D Wave computers have
been tested and it has been shown that entanglement is occurring which allows them to do these faster calculations.
At Google, Neven has run over 500,000 problems on his D-Wave and finds the same. He’s used the D-Wave to train image-recognizing algorithms for
mobile phones that are more efficient than any before. He produced a car-recognition algorithm better than anything he could do on a regular silicon
machine. He’s also working on a way for Google Glass to detect when you’re winking (on purpose) and snap a picture. “When surgeons go into
surgery they have many scalpels, a big one, a small one,” he says. “You have to think of quantum optimization as the sharp scalpel—the specific
Now should I listen to a guy that has used D Wave for over 500,000 problems and the company he works for just upgraded from 512 qubit computer to a
1,000 qubit computer or you? Should everyone just shut off all thought because you think somethings impossible? Give me a break.
At the end of the day, this is just the beginning of these things and it's not just about D Wave. Researchers all across the planet are working in
these areas and we're seeing new advances all the time. For instance, quantum entanglement was just produced at room temperature.
Scientists create quantum entanglement at room temperature
Researchers have successfully produced macro-scale quantum entanglement at room temperature through the one-two combo of an infrared laser (which
aligned magnetic states) and electromagnetic pulses (for the actual entanglement). The experiment only included enough electrons and nuclei to fill
the space of a blood cell, but that still amounts to linking "thousands" of particles.
This relatively easy entanglement opens the door to tech that wasn't even possible before. You could see sensors that pick up extremely minuscule,
particle-level changes. Eventually, this could also lead to spy-proof security where the nature of quantum physics prevents anyone from observing what
you're doing. The one certainty: this technology won't be confined to labs for too much longer.
Here's another headline:
D-Wave Systems Lands Important Customer as Quantum Computing Gains Steam
I was recently watching Next World with Dr. Kaku on Curiosity Stream and a Google Researcher was talking about how they can not only do faster
searches with D Wave they have begun to anticipate what you're going to search for in ways that are much faster than any classical computer.
So at the end of the day, research in this area is really at it's infancy and D Wave is just a first step. We're finding out things about the nature
of reality that will give us a better explanation as to how nature uses these quantum features on macroscopic levels so efficiently so who cares if
you think it's impossible. History is littered with people who proclaim things are impossible and they have no clue as to what they're talking about.
