I'm betting this technology has been around for a long time. The military cabal is just now releasing this to us civilians.

least we know who like viagra then since they want to know about it so much


but this tech will probably take 10-20 years to really get sorted into the hands of us as it takes so long to make it good enough to persuade the avaerage joe to punt their money on it

this doesn't shatter moore's law? this only proves his law is correct and we're one step closer to the technological singularity. have you ever read his publication or are you assuming you know what moore's law is?

This isn't quantum computing. This demonstrates the limit of classical mechanics.
Very interesting story and a good read.

Use a real science/technology source. www.popsci.com...


“If you take a single atom, you have to look at quantum mechanics when you describe its behavior,” he said in an interview. “As you make the (system) bigger and bigger, several iron atoms start talking to each other, and at some point you can ignore all of this quantum behavior and just think of them as a classical magnetic structure.” It turns out that point is around 12 atoms big.

In light of that, would you mind editing your title? Deny Ignorance.

Awesome, but I've been noticing a lot of articles regarding advances in computing, all done in laboratories and confined test. I would be more impressed if they could get this sort of tech onto the market before the end of the year; would be a great Q3/Q4. I know there is a requirement for manufacturing-efficiency lithography, which is making advances constantly; I believe we're very close.

This means 84,000x capacity for RAM & HDD? 1TB HDDs are coming standard nowadays so that would mean a sudden leap to 84PB disk(=84,000 TB). I have 16GB of RAM installed; being a 3d artist means a lot of intensive task that require RAM. So this tech would mean I'd have 1.3 PB of RAM. With that insane jump I can't imagine how I'd even come close to utilizing it any time soon. =]

With grapene processors on the horizon we can see a new age of computing unfolding. They're supposed to have the potential of 1Thz+.

+

1000 core processors are also up next in line.

Imagine 1000 cores running at 1Thz = 1Phz (?). This is insane. With the combined tech we could begin simulating realistic virtual/simulated realities, unbiased rendering in real-time, the possibiltiies....


If now we could only devise a better system for humanity to thrive in. With the advent of LENR tech (Rossi's Ecat this fall), the energy revolution will provide less dependence, less poverty, & make way for a world where innovation goes unhindered. TBTB WILL LOSE.

I've long envisioned computers which were just gas in a container. They cometh closer to reality.

Something that small has got to have problems with thermal degradation. We already have a hard time keeping data structures from being lost due to heat.

The nano magnets are only stable at a chilly 5 degrees Kelvin, or -450 degrees F.


Maybe that'll shed some light on your speculation

Before terribly much longer I would think that man will have a new legacy to leave in the form of a "seeds of life" that we will send to other planets that could be habitable. It is highly improbable that mankind will find a way off of earth and onto other habitable planets soon but I find it much more probable that mankind will send biological seeds to other planets to create more life perhaps in the form of ourselves. Perhaps not unlike our origins. Our leveling of programming should be at the level that we can accomplish this within the next 30 years if we're around that long.

Forgive me for being that guy, but they are probably way ahead of this behind the scenes this is just a PR stunt to make us simpletons think we're smart and evolving as a species.

Pretty amazing but I know we can do better with fiber optics. Light on for 1 and light off for 0. Nothing is faster then the speed of light.

What gives with the small stuff? I thought crystal hard drives was the next big thing!

I was under the impression they call them QuBits..

As in Quantum Bits.

Does that not make it a kind of Quantum computing?

The scientist in the OP article says


Moreover, Dr. Heinrich said, smaller groups of atoms begin to exhibit quantum mechanical behavior — simultaneously existing in both “spin” states, in effect 1 and 0 at the same time. In theory, such atoms could be assembled into Qbits — the basic unit of an experimental approach to computing that might one day exceed the capabilities of today’s most powerful supercomputers.


and yes, he is talking about quantum computing in the case, but the 12 atom arrangement doesn't work on the laws of quantum mechanics. My first post in this thread links to a popsci article on the same story, and it explains the point of the 12 atom experiment.

Edit:

Andreas Heinrich, the lead investigator into atomic storage at IBM Research Almaden and an author on a new paper describing the teeny bit. The team was interested in the transition from quantum to classical behavior, he said.

Edit: Paraphrasing in summary, they added iron atoms until they discovered that 12 atoms are the limit on classical mechanics. Any less and quantum mechanics start to take effect.

Ah ok, I get it now.

Thanks for the info, watched the vid, makes sense.

It seems like this is a fine line between conventional computing and quantum though. Although it seems that processing quantum information is the hard part..

You now realize...you now realize....you now realize

We are not real. With all considerations given to the probability of the issue, we are not the "original".

What am I talking about? I'm not being cryptic. If Quantum computing turned out to be viable, then I promised myself that I would give a little more thought the the idea. Quantum computing seems to be on its way now, so, I'll leave you with this:
