Dr. Talia Gershon, a materials scientist by training, came to IBM Research in 2012. After 4.5 years of developing next-generation solar cell materials, she got inspired to learn about quantum computing because it might enable all kinds of discoveries (including new materials). Having authored the Beginner's Guide to the QX, she passionately believes that anyone can get started learning quantum! - Maker Faire Bay Area 2017

Step 1: Governments use quantum computers to hypercontrol over everything. Life looks like a hell of broiler-chicken life.
Step 2: Governments compete about who ruined culture more and who make life of their citizens more hellish. AI has appeared.
Step 3: AI kills all governments and human rulers. Humans' life improves - now they live in zoos and have free healthy meal regularly.
Bonus: Some people come to be pets for AI, they have everything and anything including even stuff and entertainments that were banned or tabooed in pre-AI human societies. Well, all this lucky pets are castrated.
Hey bitch(apologies for my language, but usage is to beat your arrogance), the story you say 3:04 to 3:58 is from India and is very famous in India since ancient times. Does that bother you to admit it? Also, what you call Chess has original name "Cahturangaचतुरंगा " means , four divisions of army, which copied over by Arabs as "Shatranj" and into Europe as "Chess".
The original source is a spied genius (abuse crime) who dictated he whole concept in this female voice before including the ibmqx2 concept. He is also the original polyphone voice composer of ~50.000 songs including those always hitting Chard's position no.1 and the master mind of much more like Hollywood's movies and who wonders: most relevant speeches. Result: hugest job creator, most relevant inventor. Here: just a nurd game to trigger personal toward IBM research. This acting b is paid, not so the author yet. #betterbehonest #revelation #espionage #slavery #fraud #alert #makeacurrycagreatagain 📡
at 4:0-5:0 where there should be a good explanation of superposition and how qubits differ from regular computations the speaker fails to illustrate any of these principle differences. The second half is a sales pitch on how cool IBM is. I had hoped to get a better insight into quantum computing but unfortunately not from this video.
edit: I found this explanation by Prof Morello https://youtu.be/g_IaVepNDT4 To be exponentially better
Excellent, Dr. Gershon. Thanks so much for sharing this excellent introductory video. It was so helpful. Thanks to you all for making this resource available. I plan to go in and (hopefully:-) ) have some fun with it. God bless.
The 'Good News', Gospel of Salvation [1 Cor. 15:3-4] "I believe, how, Christ died for our sins, that He was buried and that He rose again the third day, amen." Watch the video. http://j.mp/2CUY2s6 Give Christ a chance, believe the gospel, be born again, repent and go back to Heaven. If you do not like Christ's program there, then you can always leave. You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain..
What is the simplest quantum algorithm (combination of quantum gates) that solves a real-world-moderately-useful problem that is reasonably understandable by a median-smart ordinary software developer (not dumb and not genius with average classical computing knowledge) ?
At 5m0s you show a 1-qubit vs a 5-qubit sphere. But, aren't there already UNCOUNTABLY INFINITELY many possible combinations of states |0> & |1> over the reals or complexes?
t*|0>+(1-t)*|1> for any real t in the interval (0,1) is uncountably infinitely many. So, why are more qubits needed?
Outdated technology. LoL.
As I have figured out how to utilize my own being to render all this quantum computing technology useless and 100% OBSOLETE.
WHY DO SO MANY HUMANS KEEP FALLING FOR THIS USELESS CRAP. IT SERVES NO PURPOSE.
HAHAHAHA. USE YOUR OWN MIND.BODY.SOUL.
Waste of time.
How does quantum computer change the way data scientists work?
Will quantum computers eventually be attuned to the existing programming languages or will a whole new peculiar language be developed that whoever wants to work with quantum computers has to learn?
Let get little more specific about this quatem cumputer. So what is the memory map, how do u control and access it's internal operation , how many control registers, data register and status registers does it have and how big are they 8 , 16 , 32 ,64, 128 bits or... ..
You're asking questions that don't make sense for a quantum computer. Registers do not exist on a quantum computer, all you have are n logical qubits. Each qubit can be put into a superposition of two states, then the state vector corresponding to that superposition can be rotated arbitrarily. Also, some pairs of qubits can be entangled by applying the controlled-NOT operation (performs a specific rotation if the control qubit is on – if the control qubit is in a superposition, too, the result will be a more complex, entangled state).
Input is provided by reseting all qubits so that they have the same initial state, then telling the quantum computer what rotations to perform and what qubit pairs to entangle in what order. Access is provided by measuring one or all of the qubits at any point during or after the computation is complete; this causes the qubits to collapse into a classical state.
Worth noting that I'm describing the IBM architecture here - exact implementations differ by researcher.
A superposition is a complex linear combination of states. For example, if you have two states (A) and (B) x(A)+y(B) is a complex linear combination of the two states (where x, y are complex numbers). There is an additional constraint - the sum of the squares of the coefficients, or amplitudes (x and y in the previous example) must equal 1. This is because the probability of a superposition being measured as (A) is x^2 and the probability for (B) is y^2.
I'm not a dumb guy... but I got the feeling I was being scammed at one point when she was explaining about the Joesephson thingy, and the Resonator... I'd almost swear she was repeating something completely made up to fool... us.
I'm not saying it's not real...
I think it works because we actually live in a more multidimensional 'world' than is commonly known.
First thought, God I'm dumb! Second thought, but can she play Little Wing on a strat?. Conclusion: She is really smart, but so are you, you just chose different paths. That's why this world is so exciting!
Does the human brain itself use quantum computing to process thoughts, reasoning and memory? How does our brain decide whether we will wear a red shirt or a blue shirt to dinner? Is our brain more akin to a binary digital computer or even an analog computer?
Unknown, but the brain's computational model is quite likely to be purely classical but more analog. Synapses have stronger connections when the potential difference between them is higher, for example - this is a continuous variable, not discrete.
I don't know if there's a great analogy, but the fact that amplitudes can be complex numbers helps a lot.
Worth noting that the imaginary number system is not useful on its own, but complex numbers are (because they're algebraically closed).
These damn technologists/liberals talkin bout Qubits like every other invention in the name of "progress", as if it wasn't already impossible enough to have a family meal (praise jesus) without everybody staring at their GameBoys or myPhones or whatever.
Also, pretty sure girl-genius meant to say "q-ball" , not "qubits"? I don't know what the hell this post-graduate's goin on about - but what I DO know is that GOD (and he IS real) does not approve of these heathens moving the q-ball to wherever they damn well please. I DO NOT CARE HOW ENTANGLED THE DAMN Q-BALL is for heaven's sake. Plus, GOD don't scratch in pool ya'll, so it's a moot point.
And one more thing, it doesn't take classical super computer, let alone a 0 degree Kelvin ABAQUS OF SIN, to optimally seat 10 guests at a dinner table. Unless the guests are the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
To take advantage of this wouldn't you need qubit memory as well? Would you need microwave emitters for each qubit stored? Do you foresee this becoming mass producible at some point? Would you need connections/wires to transmit qubits instead of 1's and 0's? If the connections to the processor and the memory is still zeros and ones I would imagine you're not going to improve much. The bottleneck the rest of the system would represent would necessarily make the quantum processor of little value (as I understand it now).
You never move qubits around. You issue commands to perform operations on qubits using a classical computer, which is still really fast. Quantum computers are asymptotically fast at certain types of problems - they perform drastically less computations than a classical computer would to solve the same problem. So the classical computer's speed is barely relevant.
It has to be said until you fully understand quantum forces, you cannot build any reliable technology. It is the exact same as building on the sandy foundation and it will give way sooner or later.
There are certain basic principles this quantum computing overlooks, as it most likely the cause of the main issues with understanding and working on such a problem.
FYI - The notion that something can be in a super position is wrong and inaccurate. Things can only exist or not exist, and if they exist then they can have a range of value(s). The superposition state is being interpreted incorrectly. In reality what you are seeing is interference, which causes the state to become obscured. I am not telling you why, other than your foundational knowledge is lacking. Again you must first fully understand quantum forces before you can build anything worthwhile. It is the foundation. Just like any building, if the foundation is not build correctly the entire structure is compromised.
No, your foundational knowledge is lacking, probably because you watched a bunch of popsci videos about quantum computing and never bothered to look at either the math or the massive body of experimental evidence around it.
Thank you for the explenation. Still I dont know how the seating problem of a round table with 10 persons can be solved. How does the quantum computer help? Where do you see practical applications of the quantum computer?
Recently I had luch with friends and we were 14 people around a table, I asked them in how many ways we could sit, the highest guess was about 20000. Everybody was shocked when I told them that it is more than 87178 millions...
True quantum uses power from alternative universes. So a real computer will not calculate every calculation with 1 - 0, 1+ 0 etc but it will calculate one answer on one computer but can recall every other answer that any other quantum computer did in every reality that ran the test. There could be more possible answers from alternative realities than available from one stand alone q machine that imitates 0 + 1. We are getting there but from this video research is still in a 2D flat plane with transmitters.
Like how do i get smart enough to understand/comprehend what she is saying? What is super position. I googled it and it just led to another rabbit hole. HOW DO I BECOME SMART TO FIND VIDEOS LIKE THIS MEANINGFUL?
Quantum computing is all fine but definitely a thing for the future why not talk about light based solutions? Why is this a taboo for the big players in microelectronics. Anyway here is a representation of a realistic solution when it comes to improving computing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzCw841mMrs and it doesn't use more than the properties of light.
By the way I'm looking for partners and support for my project so if you feel up to it let me know in my blog or you tube channel:

No she did not explain in an understandable way for a layman. She used have used an example and spent some time on it, and used some animation perhaps. She is an expert in quantum computers and cannot come up with a clear usable animation in her lecture?
As an engineering student who just learn what quantum mechanics is this is absolutely mind-blowing to me watching the video made wish I was there to go give you guys a big hug for the clear work and dedication and love you have given this project and I finally reignited my thirst for knowledge
This is just amazing <3
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
