The Hype Over Quantum Computers, Explained
 

 




CNBC

Jan 10, 2020

In October 2019, Google made a big announcement. It announced its 53-qubit quantum computer named Sycamore had achieved ‘quantum supremacy.’ That’s when quantum computers can complete tasks exponentially more quickly than their classical counterparts. In this case, Google said its quantum machine completed a task in 200 seconds that would have taken the world’s most powerful computer 10,000 years to complete. IBM, another major player in quantum computing, took issue with the findings. Either way, it was a big milestone in quantum computing, and it’s leading to a lot of hype in the field. Here’s how quantum computing works, and how it could change everything from Wall Street to Big Pharma and beyond.

my elementary level understanding of quantum computing, is that regular computers process data in '0' & '1' s but quantum computers process data in '0' '1' s & a unit know as 'both'(0&1 at the same time); with what we are able to achieve with the regular computing power; skynet might finish loading if these diff A.I. startups power up the A.I. on a Quantum computer

$NVDA (NVIDIA)

its an artificial intelligence company


Plus the ones who say they already reached quantum supremacy are only $GOOGL (Alphabet (Google))

i suggest a company that has a working product with possible commercial applications, but shares in google/alphabet can never hurt for the long haul

I wonder how this compares to the DWave... but yea parallel universes are real.

This is what I got from the video, but can you break this down more?

Yeah this video really broke it down with detail but, i'm surprised at the examples of uses for quantum computers they gave.

Can you go into your opinion further?

The theory is that quantum computers use the principle of quantum entanglement to use the computing power of alternate versions of itself in parallel universes. Which multiplies its computing power exponentially.
