Superposition and Entangled Elementary Particles? Qubits (two-state quantum-mechanical systems) are the basic unit of data in quantum computing. But what are they, exactly? How do Qubits work? Here are seven things you should know about qubits.
Microsoft made some pretty significant announcements in their pursuit of Quantum Computing yesterday at MSIgnite 2017. The video above doesn't cover all of them but it does provide an overview into Microsoft's ambitions for quantum computing in under 3 minutes.
Quantum entanglement is hard to get your head around, right? Well, meet Chris Ferrie physicist, mathematician, and father of four budding young scientists. If he can teach babies about this Quantum Entanglement, he can teach you; starting with Quantum Entanglement for Babies!
I’ve always wanted to visit Tokyo. Now I'm in this amazing city, with the added bonus of an invite to the 2017 Adiabatic Quantum Computing Conference. Received, I might add, from the amazing Hidetoshi Nishimori (Professor, Tokyo Institute of Technology).
Today I'm at BlueYard's Quantum Leap event to discuss "Funding the Quantum Ecosystem" with Siraj Khaliq from Atomico. Shu Nyatta from Softbank. Chris Perry from QuantumX. And my all-time favorite (and fellow Rick and Morty fan), Adam Goldberg (Lightspeed Ventures).
When someone asks me about quantum computing--what it is, how it works, where they can learn about it--I like to start them off with this video. I think it's the best to date on the subject. Kurzgesagt makes getting your head around quantum computing as easy as it can be.
