Google has been sharing more insights about its quantum figuring venture, which it keeps running in association with NASA. The tech organization says its mammoth D-Wave 2X quantum registering machine has been making sense of calculations at 100,000,000 times the rate that a conventional PC chip can, and that could have an enormous effect in the handling power available to us later on.
Are we ready for this or i say do we need this kinda fast computer well we actually do need this but what can we achieve from it we will probably discuss it in later on this article.lets first move on to What it is and why it is so fast.
A quantum computer taps directly into the fundamental fabric of reality – the strange and counterintuitive world of quantum mechanics – to speed computation.
Rather than store information as 0s or 1s as customary PCs do, a quantum PC utilizes qubits – which can be a 1 or a 0 or both in the meantime. This “quantum superposition”, alongside the quantum impacts of trap and quantum burrowing, empower quantum PCs to consider and control all mixes of bits all the while, making quantum calculation effective and quick.
Superposition and entanglement? Pardon?
It’s OK to be somewhat perplexed by these ideas, since we don’t encounter them in our everyday lives. It’s only when you look at the tiniest quantum particles – atoms, electrons, photons and the like – that you see charming things like superposition and entanglement.
Superposition is basically the capacity of a quantum framework to be in various states in the meantime — that is, something can be “here” and “there,” or “up” and “down” in the meantime.
Entanglement is an extremely strong correlation that exists between quantum particles — so strong, in fact, that two or more quantum particles can be inextricably linked in perfect unison, even if separated by great distances. The particles remain perfectly correlated even if separated by great distances. The particles are so intrinsically connected, they can be said to “dance” in instantaneous, perfect unison, even when placed at opposite ends of the universe. This seemingly impossible connection inspired Einstein to describe entanglement as “spooky action at a distance.”
What can a quantum computer do that a traditional computer can’t?
Calculating Big numbers, first off. Multiplying two vast numbers is simple for any PC. Be that as it may, figuring the factors of an expansive (say, 500-digit) number, then again, is viewed as unthinkable for any established PC. In 1994, a mathematician from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Peter Shor, who was working at AT&T at the time, uncovered that if a completely working quantum PC was accessible, it could figure vast numbers effortlessly.
But i don’t want to do math on quantum Computer
Nobody wants to factor very large numbers! That’s because it’s so difficult – even for the best computers in the world today. In fact, the difficulty of factoring big numbers is the basis for much of our present day cryptography. It’s based on math problems that are too tough to solve. RSA encryption, the method used to encrypt your credit card number when you’re shopping online, relies completely on the factoring problem. The website you want to purchase from gives you a large “public” key (which anyone can access) to encode your credit card information.
This key actually is the product of two very large prime numbers, known only to the seller. The only way anyone could intercept your information is to know those two prime numbers that multiply to create the key. Since factoring is very hard, no eavesdropper will be able to access your credit card number and your bank account is safe. Unless, that is, somebody has built a quantum computer and is running Peter Shor’s algorithm!.
Gaming on quantum computer
Actually, from my understanding, quantum computers will speed up certain tasks dramatically, but they won’t necessarily speed up everything. For example, they should be very, very good at factoring products of large primes. This has substantial implications for cryptography. They won’t necessarily be good at everything though, and it’s very possible that regular computers will continue to be developed in parallel with quantum computers, since their capabilities will still be needed.
Can you build your own quantum computer
Simply put: we need qubits that behave the way we want them to. These qubits could be made of photons, atoms, electrons, molecules or perhaps something else. Scientists at IQC are researching a large array of them as potential bases for quantum computers. But qubits are notoriously tricky to manipulate, since any disturbance causes them to fall out of their quantum state (or “decohere”). Decoherence is the Achilles heel of quantum computing, but it is not insurmountable. The field of quantum error correction examines how to stave off decoherence and combat other errors. Every day, researchers at IQC and around the world are discovering new ways to make qubits cooperate.not so easy! huh .
Who Built the first Commercial Quantum computer ?
D-Wave Systems, Inc. is a quantum computing company, based in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
The D-Wave One was built on early prototypes such as D-Wave’s Orion Quantum Computer. The prototype was a 16-qubit quantum annealing processor, demonstrated on February 13, 2007 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.D-Wave demonstrated what they claimed to be a 28-qubit quantum annealing processor on November 12, 2007.The chip was fabricated at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory microdevices lab in Pasadena, California.
On May 11, 2011, D-Wave Systems announced D-Wave One, described as “the world’s first commercially available quantum computer”, operating on a 128-qubit chipset using quantum annealing (a general method for finding the global minimum of a function by a process using quantum fluctuations) to solve optimization problems. In May 2013, a collaboration between NASA, Google and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) launched a Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab based on theD-Wave Two 512-qubit quantum computer that would be used for research into machine learning, among other fields of study.
On August 20, 2015, D-Wave Systems announced the general availability of the D-Wave 2X system, a 1000+ qubit quantum computer. This was followed by an announcement on September 28, 2015 that it had been installed at the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab at NASA’s Ames Research Center.
