Shoucheng Zhang: "Quantum Computing, AI and Blockchain: The Future of IT" | Talks at Google

391 ratings | 13518 views
Prof. Shoucheng Zhang discusses three pillars of information technology: quantum computing, AI and blockchain. He presents the fundamentals of crypto-economic science, and answers questions such as: What is the intrinsic value of a medium of exchange? What is the value of consensus and how does it emerge? How can math be used to create distributed self-organizing consensus networks to create a data-marketplace for AI and machine learning? Prof. Zhang is the JG Jackson and CJ Wood professor of physics at Stanford University. He is a member of the US National Academy of Science, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He discovered a new state of matter called topological insulator in which electrons can conduct along the edge without dissipation, enabling a new generation of electronic devices with much lower power consumption. For this ground breaking work he received numerous international awards, including the Buckley Prize, the Dirac Medal and Prize, the Europhysics Prize, the Physics Frontiers Prize and the Benjamin Franklin Medal. He is also the founding chairman of DHVC venture capital fund, which invests in AI, blockchain, mobile internet, big data, AR/VR, genomics and precision medicine, sharing economy and robotics.

AI becomes magisterium of computer

I've been telling people working in Nuclear Medicine how special F18 and other Positron emitting isotopes are for our time. Now being a computer science student, I find it even more exciting. With new technologies in computing and evaluation of treatments with PET technology will be a game changer with Quantum and AI. We will be curing things we considered impossible sooner than we think.

He is a great scientist but somehow seems naive when he talks about the glorious new world of total networking. He may have the best intentions but I’m sceptical: That story about the ugly duckling becoming a beautiful swan if it shares its valued data - it sounds intriguing but is mainly propaganda, especially when you think about Chinese mass surveillance and direct oppression of minorities and nonconformists based on micro observation and normalisation by means of their so-called social credit system. It may be loved by the middle class and a pet of the technocrats who claim to build a fairer monetary system and what not, and it is beloved and useful for all the “well behaved” and conformists. But it becomes more and more evident how it marginalises millions and turns them in pariahs, basically expelling them from participation in the economy. Watch out Googlers: the next technology that seems the most liberating and useful for society - with a few tweaks it may raise dystopia.

This guy is Nobel Laureate level. In my view, he deserves Nobel prize. I like him for his ambition to do something good for the entire humanity than opening some private companies for selfish interest. Yes, do good for the mankind!

Doesn't take much to win or lose, but what takes a lot is winning consistently. It should run like clock work.

QC is pure bullshit. It was about to change the world back in 2000 too. Pure hype
Death to Communism (1 month ago)
That's right. I hate that quantum has become a buzzword for speculative and clickbait science.
Naddy Nodge (1 month ago)
Death to Communism agree. Check my comment above. Basically the same opinion. Until I see evidence of a working DEMO of QC I too call bullshit. Even a toy 4-bit QC that can factor a 4-bit number would be a start. So far I've seen NOTHING!
Great stuff.

Interesting talk. I would remind everyone that entropy only necessarily increases _in an isolated system_. Were I to ask for an example of an isolated system, any answer would necessarily be self defeating, because our interaction with the system necessarily makes it not isolated. Quantum physics, if anything, is at the very least teaching us how important the act of observation is. Classical interpretation of the second law can only ever be a heuristic.

This is so amazing. The future world envisioned by Prof. Zhang as a theoretical physicist would really solve a lot of our social problems today. Couldn't be more excited.

Personally I like new blockchain platform Contract Vault, with their legal and smart contract and really solid tech. They are swiss based team so check them !

Very, very good talk. One of the best I've ever seen. Partly because of the science in it, but mainly because Prof. Shoucheng Zhang is such an amazing teacher. My knowledge in physics is at high school level at best and yet I understood practically everything he was talking about.

Interesting! However, Quantum computers will be able to crack any password instantly (see 14:41). Rather than a large number replace with your password - the world has become instantly insecure! Interesting indeed.

The Funny Thing is , on the Global scale White are actually the minority. So this Tech if applied on global scale will benefit white people the most lol

Rich people are also the minority, as are leaders of countries.

So in his 'computation of the hash puzzle' example around 36:00, the 'dumping the extra entropy somewhere else' would then be the failed hash calculations, if I understand his example correctly. What does everyone else think?

Future Finance is Family Friendly!!! I'm a poor cajun from southwest louisiane, but i'm pretty sure we're on the same page. A thousand thank yous for sharing such uplifting, pertinent information. Here's my family and I doing our best to sum up a similar sentiment https://youtu.be/_er-IlpAlOs
