That's one small step for man...
One giant leap for Singularity Kind.

I think we're already there. I think we're having a version of the simulation discussion. Aren't we discussing the kind of computer that could run our universe?

This keeps me thinking our whole universe may be a simulation already. The question becomes when did we cross over?

These quantum breakthroughs are coming at a ^ rate now we shall see pay attention people.

Are things out of place? Glasses empty that were full watch for the glitches they are coming more frequently now no?

Personal Disclosure: I for one welcome our new technical singularity overbeing.

As a New Angel I will require a job as a Noble Demon thanks!

"Gods?" Yep. Some day but not at the present.
Now, consider that ETs already have this gizmo in their back pockets. What could they have been doing with it?

For the Layman...

Don't feel un educated because you can't see thru the "Grand View" as presented by all the Showmen.

This experimentation with what they call "Q-bits" is really just another evolution of computers (the same computers) that will make them ever smaller and faster. That is the trend, eh? From room sized to desk sized to "Dick Tracy and Beyond".

This particular development if it is successful, will result in a simply smaller faster computer. Thats all. The problem with the "size" part is that the individual memory cell size is a mere electron in size (The BIG GOAL) and that size is so very tiny small that any external noise or frequency in the ether can change its 1 or 0 state. Thats why the super cooled single junction circuit in the IBM video.

All computers work in "binary" (meaning two). Like a light switch a memory "bit" (data) is read in either an "on" (1) or "off" (0) position. All the ones and zeros streaming around in a computer (and between them) make up the "program" which you are typing and reading right now.

Digital signals appear to us on an oscilloscope screen like this:

Without going into a lot more detail and keeping it as simple as possible, the pic represented is a trace of a single digital signal that has hi points and low points. The his are 1's and the lows are 0's. This could be a memory signal (data), an address bit (location in memory) or a control signal (what action to take, like write or read, etc.).

This is only one bit. When you hear the term 64 bit processor, you have a processor that can utilize or "measure" the data storage and control of 64 bits of data at once. The more bits and the higher the frequency (how many Giga are we up to?), then the faster and higher the capacity. The "quicker" things appear to move on your screen and the "higher" the resolution.

This quantum super computing research is aimed primarily at size reduction. The smaller overall they can make the box that holds these computers in the palm of your hand say, then the more "advanced" they are considered to be. Whether you need it smaller or not is another story.

For instance there are limitations to how small a keyboard can be. That is determined by the size of the human finger tip. And how small the print can be, etc.

Nothing to be concerned about really. They're just reinventing the wheel one more time.

I would be more concerned with the current technology that puts vast amounts of data into witch hunt programs and then directs hi explosive missiles from the sky at the "enemy". Those kind of "protocols" are the most insidious now and down the road.

Good link for people who may be wanting some extra information. However it seems to be a bit outdated in the area of forecasting the advancements needed to create and commercialize quantum computers.

...for now, the technology required to develop such a quantum computer is beyond our reach. Most research in quantum computing is still very theoretical.

The most advanced quantum computers have not gone beyond manipulating more than 16 qubits, meaning that they are a far cry from practical application.

A "far cry".
It estimates quantum computers being the logical next step after 2020/2030, but as you can see the research seems to be progressing much quicker. 16qbits being the most manipulated only a few years ago; and this new release stating potentially millions in the near future. Who knows what waits around the next year, 5 years, decade. There's more research & information being processed now than any point in known history; the momentum is building up, and seems to be converging into a point that represents yet another boom in human technological evolution.

"As IBM points out, a 250-qubit quantum computer would contain more bits than there are particles in the universe."

Ok, technology just got scary.

Like I said, it's safe to assume the government(s)-US/UK-are already there and then some. They're probably using it to run the markets, or forecast anyway.

With that kind of computing power you can pretty much dictate/play God with this blue marble. Isn't that what's happening? And they're ruining it.

How am i going to have pics? The agents look just like ordinary people and a few of them are regulars on this website! And enforcement programs arent visible, they simply cause events to happen to keep us in check. One of then suspended my drivers license at one point!

these are live bits operating in a quantum computer

And whatever you do never trust a quantum computer to replace your Commador 64!

Historically quantum computers were used to decrypt field cipher authenticated messages. They did not have the capability to do if then else decision tree processing.

There was a declassified report release somewhere that described a single electron loop decision tree processor.
I don't know where to put it on the computing time line probably near the actual development of the Josephson junction devices.

Found this snippet in a brief search this morning. Apparently a more recent problem with AI circuits is that they could overload analyzing things like contrails. Perhaps they don't have a conscious sense of their limits?

NANO, QUANTUM AND MOLECULAR COMPUTING in this case, will suffer from both time and space explosion problems! This phenomenon is termed “solution explosion". This is also the reason the authors of [29] avoid having the SAT-solver run to a leaf node of the decision tree, and instead they let BDDs finish off the decision tree starting at intermediate nodes. The solution explosion problem have not been well addressed in either [31] or [32]. As a result, learning plays an important and critical role in non-BDD-based unbounded model checking for large designs. In particular, recent Automatic Test Pattern Generator (ATPG)-based and SAT-based Unbounded Model Checking [21–23, 13–15, 24], can offer potential memory savings over BDDbased methods. In particular, we will discuss a new technique that centers around learning from “successes”.

This brings to mind the Zietgiest movies, mostly the end of movie 2. (I've only watched 1 and 2 of the 4 or 5 movies.)

A computer of this computational ability in the hands of the people renders banking transactions and banking systems and trading floors vulnerable to the point of obsolescence.

If you cant keep money safe, then it seems that the movie's prediction of a moneyless society will finally come to pass.

Where robots tend our farms, production lines run unattended, delivery trucks drive themselves, our plumbing is kept clog-free by nano-machines, computers run solar and geothermal power plants and humans no longer have to work to keep the world turning.

Humans will be free to create, invent, explore, better themselves and just live, free of the shackles of money, not unlike Star Trek's vision of the future.

The following movies are rather longwinded. Could be half as long if they just got on with it, but the content is good.
I especially like the explanation at the start of the first one of why there was no Jesus. I got a bit mad that I hadn't heard that explanation before. Talk about a conspiracy.
There are 2 or three more Zeitgeist movies but i havent watched them yet

Still seems to be classified but suppose we were somehow able to assimilate the mind of Konrad Zuse back in the 1940's. Instead of hiding your computer in a barn we move it to an area in space.

Now the jet age dreams of the Nazis become something else and concepts like extra terrestrial intelligence, star wars etc etc become easier to understand?

This is so much more computing power than that has ... its OBSCENE!

2^1000000 [minimum .. they said PLURAL millions] is so huge it makes stuff like 1 x 10^150 seconds [guestimated life of protons, IF they ever decay, and therefor potential maximum lifespan of known universe] look SO SMALL that one could iterate and simulate every possible universe that could ever possibly have been, being or could be in like under a second.


Say goodbye to all old and current codes and the secrets they contain ... and say hello to new codes and new secrets.

Personal Disclosure: Who needs outerspace anymore or even science ... this one thing may answer everything forever.

Edited to add link to the Australian 300 qubit quantum computer article ...

Researchers claim quantum breakthrough
(Connor Duffy and staff, Thursday, 26 April 2012) []

Experts believe quantum computing is moving to a stage where it is so far out in front and performing such complex tasks it will be difficult to check if it is working accurately.

"They're not easily checked by a classical computer which opens a whole variety of problems," says Biercuk.

And he adds that there is still plenty of work to be done before quantum computers start appearing on desks in homes and offices.

"The central element is something like a millimetre in diameter, 300 atoms that are suspended in space," says Biercuk.

"But of course everything depends on a huge amount of technical infrastructure around it. There are vacuum chambers and pumps and lasers, and all of that takes up something like a room."
