Quantum computing refers to the use of quantum mechanical phenomena like superposition, entanglement etc, to perform computing. Traditional computing works with bits. That is all information is processed and exchanged in 1, 0 /true-false signal which comprises a bit. That is bit is the unit of information in traditional computing. In quantum computer qubits are used instead. Quantum computers have been hailed for their revolutionary potential in areas ranging from space exploration, weather forecasting to financial stock application. This is due to the vast computing power that can be unleashed by Quantum Machines. Rather than using traditional binary digits (bits) — the “ones” and “zeros” used in digital communications - Quantum Machines use Quantum Bits, or Qubits. The industry is now at the stage where Five QuBit machines can be built and used. Imagine the processing power of a 50 QuBit machine and the Applications that will be realised. NASA, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Lockheed-Martin, etc.. are organisations that are now looking at having a Quantum strategy. A vast applications are available for Quantum Computing, to name a few are in : 1. Safer airplanes—Lockheed Martin plans to use its D-Wave to test jet software that is currently too complex for classical computers. 2. Discover distant planets—Quantum computers will be able to analyze the vast amount of data collected by telescopes and seek out Earth-like planets. 3. Win elections—Campaigners will comb through reams of marketing information to best exploit individual voter preferences. 4. Boost GDP—Hyper-personalized advertising, based on quantum computation, will stimulate consumer spending. 5. Detect cancer earlier—Computational models will help determine how diseases develop. 6. Help automobiles drive themselves—Google is using a quantum computer to design software that can distinguish cars from landmarks. 7. Reduce weather-related deaths—Precision forecasting will give people more time to take cover. 8. Cut back on travel time—Sophisticated analysis of traffic patterns in the air and on the ground will forestall bottlenecks and snarls. 9. Develop more effective drugs—By mapping amino acids,for example, or analyzing DNA-sequencing data, doctors will discover and design superior drug-based treatments.

Quantum bits or 'qubits' can exist in a superposition state of both zero and one simultaneously. This means that a set of two qubits can be in a superposition of four states, which therefore require four numbers to uniquely identify the state. So the amount of information stored in N qubits is two to the power of N classical bits. Thank you to Andrea Morello and UNSW. For more info, check out: http://bit.ly/17wZ7lt

Aimed at the intelligent lay person & unlike most other quantum entanglement videos, this does not miss out vital information in favour of over simplification. We explain the 'spooky action at a distance' quantum effect (in Bell test experiments) that underpins quantum computing. We also explore Einstein's claim that such results can be explained using local hidden variables.

AI is changing the world around us, making its way into businesses, health care, science and many other fields. In fact, most of us are happy to work daily with the all-knowing Google, the largest AI on Earth. Google; Golem; God: the associations are rather imposing. Are we on the verge of creating a true artificial brain? When artificial intelligence first emerged as a discipline, scientists had great hopes for it. They wanted to create General Artificial Intelligence, that is, a computer system capable of doing anything a human can, in a better and faster way than we do. After AI failed to deliver on its initial promises, scientists scaled back their expectations, instead focusing on specific tasks. This is called Narrow AI, and even though it’s a step back from General AI, it still gets important jobs done. Today’s software won’t argue with you about the world economy while fixing you a cup of tea or make you feel better when you’re depressed. It can still recognize your face, though, and understand you when you invite it to a game of chess. Today, after years of trying different approaches to creating AI, "machine learning" is the only area that brings promising and relevant results. The idea behind it is fairly simple. Rather than programming computers with a specific set of instructions to accomplish a particular task, such as moving around, speaking, or recognizing faces, you code machines to learn on their own how to perform the task. Unlike traditional programming, which uses explicit, sequential instructions, machine learning software looks at a large number of sample data and uses statistical modelling to find patterns therein. Training it to recognize pictures of horses involves showing it lots of horse pictures tagged as such, along with another set of pictures of other things. The machine then learns what data points are common to horse images, and can use them to identify new pictures. Various algorithmic concepts have been used for machine learning, but it was biomimetics, or biomimicry, that allowed for a real breakthrough. Biomimetics takes inspiration from biology, in this case the human brain, in order to design a more intelligent machine. This led to the development of Artificial Neural Networks, which are programmed to process information in the same way our brain does. Due to the exponential increase in computing power in the last few years, we're now able to build neural networks with much larger and deeper layers than it was previously possible. Although there is no clear border between the terms, this area of machine learning is often described as "deep learning." Deep learning can be summarized as a system of probability with a feedback loop on top of it. Based on a large dataset, it is able to make statements with a degree of certainty. For instance, the system might be 77% confident that there is a horse on the image, 90% confident that it’s an animal and 12% confident it’s a toy. To improve itself, the artificial neural network is able to learn from its mistakes, to be able to make a better decision later on. Our own learning processes are linked to the synapses in the brain, which serve as connections between our neurons. The more a synapse is stimulated, the more the connection is reinforced and learning improved. Researchers took inspiration from this mechanism to design an artificial synapse, called a memristor. The resistance of this electronic nanocomponent can be tuned using voltage pulses similar to those in neurons. If the resistance is low the synaptic connection will be strong, and if the resistance is high the connection will be weak. This capacity to adapt its resistance enables the synapse to learn. However, apart from the problem that we don’t really understand how human intelligence works, the functioning of a biological system like our brain remains fundamentally different. The initial enthusing over AI has faded and the sci-fi scenarios are mostly over. Even with the emergence of new machine-learning techniques the ultimate goal of the field—some form of General AI—remains a distant vision. Still, powerful machine learning is spreading into new industries and areas of daily life and will heighten attention on the unintended consequences that may result.

Seth Lloyd visited the Quantum AI Lab at Google LA to give a tech talk on "Quantum Machine Learning." This talk took place on January 29, 2014. Speaker Info: Seth Lloyd is one of pioneers in the quantum information science with several seminal contributions to quantum computing, quantum communication, and quantum control. He developed the first quantum algorithms for efficient simulation of many-body systems at the quantum scale. He has also introduced the first realizable model for quantum computation and is working with a variety of groups to construct and operate quantum computers and quantum communication systems. Dr. Lloyd is the author of over a hundred and fifty scientific papers, and of `Programming the Universe,' (Knopf, 2004). He is currently professor of quantum-mechanical engineering at MIT. Abstract: Machine learning algorithms find patterns in big data sets. This talk presents quantum machine learning algorithms that give exponential speed-ups over their best existing classical counterparts. The algorithms work by mapping the data set into a quantum state (big quantum data) that contains the data in quantum superposition. Quantum coherence is then used to reveal patterns in the data. The quantum algorithms scale as the logarithm of the size of the database.

Quantum mechanics (QM -- also known as quantum physics, or quantum theory) is a branch of physics which deals with physical phenomena at nanoscopic scales where the action is on the order of the Planck constant. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the quantum realm of atomic and subatomic length scales. Quantum mechanics provides a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. Quantum mechanics provides a substantially useful framework for many features of the modern periodic table of elements including the behavior of atoms during chemical bonding and has played a significant role in the development of many modern technologies. In advanced topics of quantum mechanics, some of these behaviors are macroscopic (see macroscopic quantum phenomena) and emerge at only extreme (i.e., very low or very high) energies or temperatures (such as in the use of superconducting magnets). For example, the angular momentum of an electron bound to an atom or molecule is quantized. In contrast, the angular momentum of an unbound electron is not quantized. In the context of quantum mechanics, the wave--particle duality of energy and matter and the uncertainty principle provide a unified view of the behavior of photons, electrons, and other atomic-scale objects. The mathematical formulations of quantum mechanics are abstract. A mathematical function, the wavefunction, provides information about the probability amplitude of position, momentum, and other physical properties of a particle. Mathematical manipulations of the wavefunction usually involve bra--ket notation which requires an understanding of complex numbers and linear functionals. The wavefunction formulation treats the particle as a quantum harmonic oscillator, and the mathematics is akin to that describing acoustic resonance. Many of the results of quantum mechanics are not easily visualized in terms of classical mechanics. For instance, in a quantum mechanical model the lowest energy state of a system, the ground state, is non-zero as opposed to a more "traditional" ground state with zero kinetic energy (all particles at rest). Instead of a traditional static, unchanging zero energy state, quantum mechanics allows for far more dynamic, chaotic possibilities, according to John Wheeler. The earliest versions of quantum mechanics were formulated in the first decade of the 20th century. About this time, the atomic theory and the corpuscular theory of light (as updated by Einstein) first came to be widely accepted as scientific fact; these latter theories can be viewed as quantum theories of matter and electromagnetic radiation, respectively. Early quantum theory was significantly reformulated in the mid-1920s by Werner Heisenberg, Max Born and Pascual Jordan, (matrix mechanics); Louis de Broglie and Erwin Schrödinger (wave mechanics); and Wolfgang Pauli and Satyendra Nath Bose (statistics of subatomic particles). Moreover, the Copenhagen interpretation of Niels Bohr became widely accepted. By 1930, quantum mechanics had been further unified and formalized by the work of David Hilbert, Paul Dirac and John von Neumann with a greater emphasis placed on measurement in quantum mechanics, the statistical nature of our knowledge of reality, and philosophical speculation about the role of the observer. Quantum mechanics has since permeated throughout many aspects of 20th-century physics and other disciplines including quantum chemistry, quantum electronics, quantum optics, and quantum information science. Much 19th-century physics has been re-evaluated as the "classical limit" of quantum mechanics and its more advanced developments in terms of quantum field theory, string theory, and speculative quantum gravity theories. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsVGut7G-dU quantum solace, quantum world, #quantum

During a visit to the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, David Kaiser, History of Science professor at MIT, spoke about his latest book, How the Hippies Saved Physics. www.hippiessavedphysics.com Today, quantum information theory is among the most exciting scientific frontiers, attracting billions of dollars in funding and thousands of talented researchers. But as MIT physicist and historian David Kaiser reveals, this cutting-edge field has a surprisingly psychedelic past. How the Hippies Saved Physics introduces us to a band of freewheeling physicists who defied the imperative to "shut up and calculate" and helped to rejuvenate modern physics. For physicists, the 1970s were a time of stagnation. Jobs became scarce, and conformity was encouraged, sometimes stifling exploration of the mysteries of the physical world. Dissatisfied, underemployed, and eternally curious, an eccentric group of physicists in Berkeley, California, banded together to throw off the constraints of the physics mainstream and explore the wilder side of science. Dubbing themselves the "Fundamental Fysiks Group," they pursued an audacious, speculative approach to physics. They studied quantum entanglement and Bell's Theorem through the lens of Eastern mysticism and psychic mind-reading, discussing the latest research while lounging in hot tubs. Some even dabbled with LSD to enhance their creativity. Unlikely as it may seem, these iconoclasts spun modern physics in a new direction, forcing mainstream physicists to pay attention to the strange but exciting underpinnings of quantum theory.

Quantum information science and technology are emerging and fascinating technologies formed by combining coherent manipulating of individual quantum systems and information technology. This enables secure quantum cryptography (quantum communication), super-fast quantum computing, revealing the laws of complex physical systems (quantum simulation), and improving measurement precision (quantum metrology) to beat classical limits. This presentation will highlight some of our progress with quantum communication, quantum computing, quantum simulation and quantum metrology, based on photons and atoms. Jian-Wei Pan is Director: Division of Quantum Physics and Quantum Information at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei and holds a PhD from the University of Vienna (1999).

Google Tech Talks December, 6 2007 ABSTRACT This tech talk series explores the enormous opportunities afforded by the emerging field of quantum computing. The exploitation of quantum phenomena not only offers tremendous speed-ups for important algorithms but may also prove key to achieving genuine synthetic intelligence. We argue that understanding higher brain function requires references to quantum mechanics as well. These talks look at the topic of quantum computing from mathematical, engineering and neurobiological perspectives, and we attempt to present the material so that the base concepts can be understood by listeners with no background in quantum physics. This first talk of the series introduces the basic concepts of quantum computing. We start by looking at the difference in describing a classical and a quantum mechanical system. The talk discusses the Turing machine in quantum mechanical terms and introduces the notion of a qubit. We study the gate model of quantum computing and look at the famous quantum algorithms of Deutsch, Grover and Shor. Finally we talk about decoherence and how it destroys superposition states which is the main obstacle to building large scale quantum computers. We clarify widely held misconceptions about decoherence and explain that environmental interaction tends to choose a basis in state space in which the system decoheres while leaving coherences in other coordinate systems intact.

Find out what it takes for a quantum computer to beat a classical computer to achieve quantum supremacy. Check out this video's sponsor https://brilliant.org/dos Quantum supremacy’s that moment when a quantum computer beats the best supercomputers at solving some kind of problem, and it’s a very exciting time right now in quantum computing because, as of recording this video we’re on the brink of having quantum supremacy. In this video I quickly describe how quantum computing works, what quantum computers exist in the world today and what you need to do to prove quantum supremacy. When I posted this video quantum supremacy hadn’t been reached, but people are predicting that it will happen soon. Also the qubit numbers I posted for the different quantum computing efforts will go out of date quite quickly, so they won’t be valid if you are watching this in the future. Hello from April 2018!

Moore's Law -- putting more and more transistors on a chip -- accelerated the computing industry by so many orders of magnitude, it has (and continues to) achieve seemingly impossible feats. However, we're now resorting to brute-force hacks to keep pushing it beyond its limits and are getting closer to the point of diminishing returns (especially given costly manufacturing infrastructure). Yet this very dynamic is leading to "a Cambrian explosion" in computing capabilities… just look at what's happening today with GPUs, FPGAs, and neuromorphic chips. Through such continuing performance improvements and parallelization, classic computing continues to reshape the modern world. But we're so focused on making our computers do more that we're not talking enough about what classic computers can't do -- and that's to compute things the way nature does, which operates in quantum mechanics. So our smart machines are really quite dumb, argues Rigetti Computing founder and CEO Chad Rigetti; they're limited to human-made binary code vs. the natural reality of continuous variables. This in turn limits our ability to work on problems that classic computers can't solve, such as key applications in computational chemistry or large-scale optimization for machine learning and artificial intelligence. Which is where quantum computing comes in. SUBCRIBE - https://goo.gl/aiECKP The a16z Podcast discusses tech and culture trends, news, and the future -- especially as ‘software eats the world’.

As a discipline, science aspires to be an evidence-based, non-partisan tool for revealing truth. But science is carried out by scientists, human beings like the rest of us, subject to pressures, preconceptions, and biases. What are the external, non-scientific forces that impact scientific research? Does the current research structure drive focus away from unbiased exploration? What lessons can we draw from the recent crisis of reproducibility afflicting some research areas? In this program, experts discuss the myriad factors scientists face in a highly competitive environment as they seek to uphold and advance the ideals of scientific exploration.

In the past 10 years we’ve gone through a spectacular evolution of classical computing capacity. In addition to the classic CPU, we’ve seen the rise of the GPU and, lately, the rise of the FPGA with huge increases in computing power available for both general workloads and specialized workloads (like deep learning for example). The datacenters of the global public cloud providers are becoming ever larger, denser, and more powerful. In the era of AI we’re now able to harness all this tremendous power to deliver ground breaking solutions like face and emotion recognition, conversational intelligence, emotion analysis, outlier detection, and many more. Yet from a certain point of view, despite all the huge advancements in classical computing, it becomes obvious that we’re getting closer and closer to the hard limit imposed by mother nature. It’s one of those cases when, to move forward, one needs to completely change the context. Enters quantum computing, an approach based on the very spectacular and strange behavior of matter and energy governed by the laws of quantum physics. Join me in this session in a journey of quantum computing discovery that will amaze you and most probably will make you question everything you know about modern IT. We’ll talk about the why, the how, and the when and we’ll delve into the spectacular implications of this ground breaking new technology. Talare: Ciprian Jichici Inspelat under TechDays 2018

Chris Ferrie takes us through a historical journey of his own coming of age with digital software and what that experience has granted him. The lesson is that children will take advantage of the opportunities they are given, but only if their parents and teachers show genuine interest in the activities giving rise to those opportunities. Twenty years from now, there will be a Quantum Technology equivalent of Bill Gates. That future leader is only a young child today. That child has an enthusiastic parent or teacher who models curiosity and provides access and opportunity to understand and play with new quantum technology. Hence, that child will come of age with next quantum technology revolution. But if the seeds are not sown today, then will never grow into the big ideas of tomorrow. IQC and Faculty of Mathematics alumnus Ferrie is now a Senior Lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney's Centre for Quantum Software and Information, and author of children's science books including Quantum Physics for Babies.

Over the past few decades, physicists have discovered a phenomenon that operates outside the confines of space and time: nonlocality - the ability of two particles to act in harmony no matter how far apart they may be. Einstein grappled with this oddity and couldn't come to terms with it, describing it as "spooky action at a distance." More recently, the mystery has deepened as other forms of nonlocality have been uncovered. This strange occurrence, which has direct connections to black holes, particle collisions, and even the workings of gravity, holds the potential to undermine our most basic understandings of physical reality. If space isn't what we thought it was, then what is it? In this talk "Spooky Action at a Distance: The Phenomenon That Reimagines Space and Time--and What It Means for Black Holes, the Big Bang, and Theories of Everything", George Musser sets out to answer that question, offering a provocative exploration of nonlocality and a celebration of the scientists who are trying to explain it. He traces the often contentious debates over nonlocality through major discoveries and disruptions of the twentieth century and shows how scientists faced with the same undisputed experimental evidence develop wildly different explanations for that evidence.

China has the Craziest Fastest Computer and Largest Radio Telescope in the World . China's Sunway TaihuLight has unsurprisingly taken the crown of the world's fastest machine again, according to the latest edition of the semiannual Top500 list of supercomputers released Monday. The massive supercomputer, built entirely using processors designed and made in China, made its first public appearance in June, when it easily dethroned the former champion, Tianhe-2, also a Chinese system but built based on Intel chips. TaihuLight is capable of performing 93 million billion calculations per second (petaflop/s). That's almost three times as fast as Tianhe-2, which had claimed No. 1 spot in the Top500 list for the past three years. That means a Chinese supercomputer has topped the rankings for eight times in a row, indicating the rise of China in the high performance computing (HPC) field. In the previous list released in June, China overtook the United States in the number of total supercomputers installed. That was first time that the United States has not dominated this category since the list was started 23 years ago. This time, the number of systems installed in China increased to 171 from 168 on the last list, but the United States also made "a slight recovery" and now has 171 systems, up from 165 in the previous list. "The 48th edition of the Top500 list saw China and the United States pacing each other for supercomputing supremacy," Top500 editors said in a statement released at an HPC conference in Salt Lake City. "A year ago the United States was the clear leader with 200 systems, while China had 108." In addition, China and the United States are "neck-and-neck in the performance category" with the latter holding 33.9 percent of the overall installed performance while the former is second with 33.3 percent of the overall installed performance, said the statement. In the latest rankings, Titan and Sequoia, two systems from the United States, remained No. 3 and No. 4 positions, but the top 10 list did receive "a mild shakeup." The Cori supercomputer, a new system installed at the U.S. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, slipped into the fifth slot with a performance of 14.0 petaflop/s. Right behind it at No. 6 is the new Oakforest-PACS supercomputer that is running at Japan's Joint Center for Advanced High Performance Computing with a performance of 13.6 petaflop/s. The addition of Cori and Oakforest-PACS pushed every system below them a couple of notches down, with the exception of Piz Daint, a supercomputer installed at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center, which maintained its spot at No. 8 as a result of a massive 3.5 petaflop/s upgrade. When it comes to companies making these systems, the America-based Hewlett-Packard Enterprise has the lead with 112 supercomputers, which is followed by China's Lenovo with 92 systems. There are three other Chinese companies in the vendor list: Sugon (No. 4 with 47 systems), Inspur (No. 8 with 18 systems) and Huawei (No. 9 with 16 systems). "Chinese manufactures like Lenovo and Huawei are doing well globally," Jack Dongarra, professor of the University of Tennessee and editor of the list, told Xinhua. The Top500 list is considered one of the most authoritative rankings of the world's supercomputers. It is compiled on the basis of the machines' performance on the Linpack benchmark by experts from the United States and Germany. Nick Suntzeff, an astronomer at Texas A&M University, recalled this episode when asked why no astronomers had yet taken a lucrative position to run the world's largest radio telescope, in China. The job pays about $1.2 million annually. "Now, that is an exaggeration," Suntzeff said of the TV show. "But I know many astronomers who would do such a thing. They want to be paid well, yes, but the money does not buy you telescope time, or access to supercomputers, or fund postdocs and graduate students." China has built a staggeringly large instrument in the remote southern, mountainous region of the country called the Five hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, or FAST. The telescope measures nearly twice as large as the closest comparable facility in the world, the US-operated Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. Radio telescopes use a large, parabolic dish to collect radio waves from distant sources, such as pulsars and black holes—or even alien civilizations. Thanks for watching. Subscribe to our channel.
