Nice video on quantum computing

Recommended Posts

Cool. Thanks for sharing.

 

The bit where he describes that its only faster for exponential operations make me wonder if its ideal for procedural rendering.

 

Being the electronics / computer geek I beleive myself to be, I tried following a course on coursera about quantum computing but my head nearly exploded in confusion.

It confuses me too.

 

The qubit can be both states at the same time, but the probably of it being one state or the other changes..........OK, I think I'll leave that right there.

I shot a presentation by D-Wave a couple years ago here in the valley, and they had the machine in some absolute zero chamber in Canada (the chip has to be really cold to work?!) and dialed into it. They solved some sudokus, believe it or not. I could've solved them faster, but it was live and evidently the first public demo of quantum computing ever, so was a big deal here. Haven't heard much on the topic since then. Thanks for sharing!
