Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology

Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology For most of our history, human technology consisted of our brains, fire, and sharp sticks. While fire and sharp sticks became power plants and nuclear weapons, the biggest upgrade has happened to our brains. Since the 1960’s, the power of our brain machines has kept growing exponentially, […]

How Does a Quantum Computer Work?

A classical computer performs operations using classical bits, which can be either zero or one. Now in contrast, a quantum computer users quantum bits or qubits. And they can be both zero and one at the same time. And it is this that gives a quantum computer its superior computing power. There are a number […]

If You Don’t Understand Quantum Physics, Try This!

Quantum physics has a mystique of being complicated and hard to understand, in fact Richard Feynmann who won the Nobel prize for his work on quantum electrodynamics said: “If you think you understand quantum physics, you don’t understand quantum physics”. Which is kind of disheartening for us because if he didn’t understand it, what chance […]

We’re Close to a Universal Quantum Computer, Here’s Where We’re At

What you’re looking at is a hermetically sealed glass laboratory. Scientists here are engineering special chips that could power the next computing revolution: a universal quantum computer. Chances are you’ve heard of quantum computer and that they’re going to change everything. “So quantum computers have the potential to completely change how we use technology in […]
