  • Published on: 08 December 2015
  • Where are the limits of human technology? And can we somehow avoid them? This is where quantum computers become very interesting.

    Sharp sticks actually became loud, screamy sticks that often had sharp sticks attached. Then it was radioactive sticks that were used in a war that had two sticks in its name (World war II)Something about that shape really sticks with people, and sticks in them

    Does any of you ring a bell by the name "Gil Kalai" ? He's one of the most smartest mathematicians out there, and he said that quantum supremacy will never be possible. (Google's allegement is false) End of story.

    2:37 Sounds like this part of the video tries to establish a relationship between Moore's Law and quantum computing. That's a mistake that might just create confusion. Quantum computing is not about overcoming the Moore's Law. It has a completely different purpose.

    How quantum computer is applied in IT security? Can u elaborate that part !

  • Muhammad Abdullah Waseem

    So basically a qubit is confused about its identity until its forced to identify itself as either a 1 or a 0. Noice

    And now Quantum supremacy has been finally reached. Some researchers actually simulated molecules like It Is suhgested in the video. Kurzgesagt forecasts the future

    Entanglement is probably how we will communicate in the future. Discovering a way to piggy back data to entanglement somehow. Interesting stuff though!
