Amazing stuff. When do I get my digital woman?
What is considered a "quantum computer"..
In reality a quantum computer is totally wireless... It's impossible to have a computer that has ZERO hardware...
Wave goodbye to encryption that depends on public and private keys (which is a lot of encryption nowadays). These computers will be able to factor huge numbers.
This is both awesome and terrifying.
Awesome because we finally have the first generation of quantum computers. And now they can do quantum calculations.
Terrifying because once the criminals get quantum computers they can do great evil and there's no way to stop them without everyone also switching to quantum computers and quantum communications.
The quantum stuff is still very expensive, so in the Financial industry only the big players will survive.
And what about us average folks? We can't afford multiple millions of dollars to have a computer.
Na, it's just science man and the problem of people using it for bad purposes is as old as fire.
Eventually it will be cheap enough and small enough.
Hypothetical of corse, how much you wanna bet I get a quantum computer in my cell phone before I die?
All tech is expensive and rate when it's new
Actually, I read a news article recently that predicted that cell phones might be gone in 5 years. I can't find the original article I read so this one will have to do: The Smartphone Could Be Dead And Gone In Five Years: Report
The other article I can't find now also included the idea that in the future we'll be focused on putting tech inside us rather than use cell phones.
I wouldn't argue the idea that we may achieve a point where we have storage devices that could store more information/data than we can program but it still wouldn't be a quantum computer because it would still have limits...
Many believe the key to true limitless computing are crystals...
possum's the only one `round here dat knows how to use a quantum `puter...
Microsoft gambles on a quantum leap in computing
31 March 2018 - In a laboratory in Copenhagen, scientists believe they are on the verge of a breakthrough that could transform computing.
It’s going to take decades before average Joe can get his hands on one of these boys.
But at the same time - do we really need so much computing power in our daily lives?
For the average Joe maybe not; at least not yet. But there are real world problems where the lack of computing resources are a severe limitation and which could benefit greatly from quantum computing.
They need to cool the quantum processor to close to absolute zero to compute things. This process is very expensive and will probably not be in reach of the average Joe ever. I could be wrong.
I wonder which of the quantum computer companies is going to make the breakthrough to bring us a useable quantum computer. It could be Microsoft, it could be Google, or D-Wave. Whoever it is, their stock price is likely to jump high into the sky, so investing now would be best.
D-Wave is hard to invest in. The only way I know for the average investor is via 180 Degree Capital (ticker:TURN). The problem is that D-Wave is only a small part of their holding.
By yeah, I agree, quantum computing is happening and it's going to be revolutionary. We had the digital revolution beginning in the 1970's and now it will be the quantum revolution starting in the 2020's.
How could you even ask such a thing? There is no such thing as to much computer power in our daily lives.
I want a 48 core quantum CPU with 4 quantum graphics cards (TITAN versions) in SLI, and 64 TBs of quantum RAM on 1,000,000 TB quantum hard drives. If they can make my monitor, keyboard and mouse quantumized then do that as well.
Can a quantum computer detect stardust? Cue for a song - altogether now . . .
"When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song"
Yap yap yap.
