Where are the limits of human technology? And can we somehow avoid them? This is where quantum computers become very interesting.

Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology

Why are "specialized tool" and "big revolution to humanity" given are as seperate options? I ask this, because let's say there's something that cures cancer specifically and nothing else, I would consider that both.
Not at all. A few forms of encryption would not work (particularly those that rely on discrete log being a difficult problem – prime factorization becomes much easier, and so does elliptic curves). That means RSA and simple elliptic curve cryptography break. Many other forms of cryptography have been theorized that are quantum-resistant; a quantum computer would not be significantly better at those. In fact, some modern encryption (like AES) is already quantum-resistant. Once quantum computers develop more, we can start to switch out existing algorithms with the new ones.
Unfortunately, Brain.OS has stopped working.
Cause of error - Comprehension.exe has crashed.
Press Tylenol to reboot.
Press Alcohol to reboot and send a crash report after startup. This will delete any data from this session in the morning.
Would it be possible for data transmission from one quantum computer to another? Like no internet, wifi or wires connecting them.
This would really fuck with the world and the minds of scientists. So many would try an say parallel universe or other dimensions and all that mumbo jumbo. But really it’s just 5-dimensional space connecting them.
Could we not think of a qubit existing in a 5th dimensional state?
Thanks for trying to answer my question. And wow! quantum internet is what they're calling it. And it's been done, cool!
Yeah I suppose I said more then I should of. Just to clarify, what I'm referring to as 5-dimensional space is also referred to as the Quantum Foam. It has many names with just as many theories. In my understanding it is essentially a singularity at the center of all protons and source of gravity. As you can tell I'm no physicist. But I'm going to believe what I'm going to believe. A paradigm shift can only come from within. Two scientists arguing about theories is essentially the same as two religious people arguing about which god is real.
guys i've had that crazy thought what if....
we created a quantum computer but we gave it artificial intelligence :O what do u guys think???
btw i'm just 12 and SOMEHOW my brain was'nt nuked after this.....thing....i just experienced
Quantum matter and quantum computers both cannot do any infinite amount of actions. A quantum computer is able to perform some very fast manipulations on an arbitrarily complicated superposition of states, which in turn means it can be quite powerful. But this still takes time and when measured the superposition collapses to one value, so it never does infinite actions.
Actually in quantum mechanics there is a notion of quantum states having infinite dimension (IIRC, this is to satisfy some properties of decoherence), but this still does not imply infinite computational power.
I see you have a mislead understanding of quantum physics that many people have caused by videos like this.
Look, I won't explain a lot, but firstly, in a friendly way, lemme yell you that QM has been around for over a 100 years now.
LEDs, regular computers, lasers and much more of our regular life are quantum phenomena. Lasers, for example, are the result of the study of atomic metastable energy states, and stimulated absorption and emission.
LEDs work on the basis of semiconductors, as well as transistors, and those work because of variable energy bands and other things.
Quantum isn't weird unexplained stuff that science cracks her head around, is very formal, solid physics with lots of pratical applications.
The quantum weirdness that may seem magic at first like quantum tunneling is not only explainable, but exploitable. Like in the erasin of NOR flash memory or STMs.
That was just a head ups to let ya understand that QM is what it is.
The second thing, quantum matter is all matter because all matter is governed by quantum physics. And it doesn't behave like you are describing
Quantum tunneling is a wavefunction phenomena attributed to potential energy barriers. Very important and very well understood.
Regular NOR flash memory uses quantum tunneling to erase it, there are microscopes that work with it, and much more.
Keep in mind a 7min vid on such a complex toic will inevitably display misinformation or mislead people for the sake of simplicity.
1 thing that trigers me is, if it gives you multiple possible sugestions how can you tell that it will cifer a password faster then a normal computer? it will be the same thing as a normal pc, it will still need to try all the possible passwords to see if any of them are correct right?
am i missing anything there or this is just bulshit? basicly it will need to bruteforce a password to get the solution anyway, so if it is trying to cifer a password from a normal binary system it will still need to insert all the possible choices to find the right one or it will need multiple inputs to find the right password, like an ai program that can be made in a normal binary system
Something being everything at once until observes is not correct. It’s one just we can’t tell until we observe it. Just as Schrödinger’s cat is not both dead and alive until observed. It is one or the other
Input: Any individual human genome, including a recently-fertilized egg.
Output: A 3D rendering of the person as an adult, a list of all that person's genetic anomolies, and all manifestations of those anomolies.
Input: A request to simulate "evolving" any animal's genome including a human, over millions of simulated years, such that it could fly in Earth's atmosphere and gravity.
Output: A resulting genome of a human with wings.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
