Could you please explain to me why and how quantum computing beats classic computing? The links I've found are too complicated for my brain.

Someplace like the moon?


Historically perhaps this is true. Legend has it that the dengmi was read by Chinese lantern on the moon.

Bletchley park in the UK was staffed by women during WW2.

One definition for early quantum computers was that they reduced the difficulty of solving a problem by at least an order of operation. For example 128 bit encryption that had 2^128 possible solutions could be solved with just a 2 * 128 matrix.

Chess players were probably the original quantum thinkers that solved deep problems in a quantum fashion. and there may have been quantum computers developed secretly long before Bletchley park.

A quantum computer is extremely limited unless there is an efficient interface that allows intermediate results to be compared, decision treed, and fed back into the process the way classical computer algorithms work.

mind blowing.

the digital singularity is not far now.

batten down the hatches boys and girls its going to be an interesting ride.

A normal bit is simply like a light that is on or off. 1 or 0

Quantum conputing uses atomic forces rather than electricity. So the computer chip could be made alot smaller.

That's all I know. That should be it, unless they plan to use the various quantum phenomena to have more than two states, 0 or 1.

Aside from computing, if work can be done on anything at the atomic level, that work will lead to insight and breakthroughs into how the atomic forces work and can be used.

Maytbe the excitement is about inventions beyond computing, like enrgy or medicine.

people are making alot of claims about what it can do but they are unfounded and unproven.

it may be the ultimate calculator but there is a whole underlying base of other things that have to be up to task to handle quantum computing which arent.

Like where or how do you get data at that speed for processing

durrr

Historically the latest computer equipment has always been classified or at least compartmentalized and written up in esoteric language.

I tryed googling

"optical cache memories coherence quantum computer"

Quantum computer memory overview

And came up with declassified overview but why get lost in details that are probably 50 years old?
I think you can learn more from reading the programming issues as they relate to quantum computers used for artificial intelligence.

Whilst this is cool, I think the media omit the fact that a consumer won't be buying a quantum computer from Walmart ever because they're simply not designed to do ordinary tasks that we do today. They just simply can't do them, ever.

I think smart consumers understand that they're not meant for us. I would like to see one though.

What? Quantum computers existed before any of computer science was developed? Are you totally out of your mind?

The rest of your posts in this thread have been insane, too, I just thought I'd point out the extra insanity of this one.

Ive encountered enforcement programs and agents a few times.



Pics or it didnt happen.

Please have pics.

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!


Was that before or after they held you and searched your laptop for child porn?

To be fair I have not read any of his previous post, but this one does not seem to insane in my opinion. If these things were developed in our past (WAY IN OUR PAST) we would have no way of ever finding out. Every civilization has dark ages where tons of known scientific information was lost. Look at our history with our dark age.

In my humble opinion we are not as advanced as we would like to imagine. The more we pick apart reality and build more computers, we are finding reality almost seems to function based off algorithms.



In essence we could be our "ancestors" experiencing this reality or "simulation" to look at our past. To view another way, we could be Artificial Intelligence that became self aware and decided to plug into our "past" in an effort to learn who or how we were created. By storing all the information "we" collected through are various "life's" on our way towards becoming self aware, we could then reverse engineer our "self".

I know it sounds crazy, but who knows. Lot less crazy than most religious "ideas". Even some of those make sense from this perspective. Jesus would simply be us introducing "Love" into our program.

Just to clarify a bit. The machine does use electricity, but measures quantum forces. And yes, the 'chip' itself is pretty damn miniscule. But it'll take a lot of time to squeeze the support apparatus, which at the moment, fills out a small room.

And yea, that's exactly what they plan to do. The qubits make use of quantum superpositioning. And for the laymen; as said earlier, a normal bit has two possible states, 0 or 1. Physically it functions like a gate, when closed, it's state is 0, when open, it's 1. You get the idea.
Now enter quantum superpositioning, this is the idea that, a bit, or in this case a qubit (quantum bit), doesn't necessary have to be exactly 0, or 1. It can exist in the middle, or somewhere inbetween; say 0.2, or 80% closed (0) and 20% open (1).

This opens up some crazy new possibilities for computation.

Those enforcement programs are called DUI laws.
The agents are called Deputy Sheriffs.

Quantum processing isnt all its cracked up to be.

SIMD processing isnt flexible like say our brains are. Only good for simple "deep" tasks. An important step.

Quantum algorithm breakthrough February 24, 2013 An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bristol, UK, and the University of Queensland, Australia, has demonstrated a quantum algorithm that performs a true calculation for the first time. Quantum algorithms could one day enable the design of new materials, pharmaceuticals or clean energy devices. Read more at: phys.org...

...

we built a full quantum circuit to implement the phase estimation algorithm without any simplification. We don't need to know the answer in advance and it is the first time the answer is truly calculated by a quantum circuit with a quantum algorithm." Read more at: phys.org...

Good find.

What people need to realize is Quantum Computation already exist in nature. We're just trying to build technology that will allow us to use this quantum computation to compute what we want it to compute. Nature has figured it out and eventually we will.

If you noticed, the very small seems to be the future. Nanotechnology, synthetic biology, 3-D printing, DNA information storage, quantum computing and more. These are exciting times.

dont forget, the mind IS a quantum computer

based around a holographic memory system.
