    Last May, in partnership with NASA, we announced the Quantum A.I. Lab, a
    place where researchers from around the world can experiment with the
    incredible powers and possibilities of quantum computing.

    We’re still in the early, early days, but we think quantum computing can
    help solve some of the world’s most challenging computer science problems.
    We’re particularly interested in how quantum computing can advance machine
    learning, which can then be applied to virtually any field: from finding
    the cure for a disease to understanding changes in our climate.

    As the team began working together this past summer, we decided to shoot
    some footage and put together a short video that provides a peek behind the
    scenes and introduces a few of quantum computing’s mind-bending, strange,
    and undeniably awesome concepts.

    If you’re curious about quantum computing, just follow this page for
    updates, discussions about new research, and videos from our monthly
    speaker series.

    Why does EVERY science related video end up with endless debate in the
    comments about God? Please shut the fuck up about God!! It’s not that I as
    an agnostic am not interested in God, but you all damn well know that we
    will never prove or disprove the existence of God. It’s an endless debate
    which will never be resolved! So please, spend your energy on something
    more productive. And don’t do it for me. Just do it because this is
    becoming just plainly pathetic.

    Lol this reminds me of Aperture science a lot. First I see old fasioned
    filmstrip like video, about making an artificial intelligence, then I hear
    a similar quote: “We do because we must.”

    “Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam
    Beckett stepped into the quantum leap accelerator and vanished. He awoke to
    find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his
    own, and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His
    only guide on this journey is Al, an observer from his own time, who
    appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. And so,
    Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right
    what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the
    leap home.”

    But will it run Crysis 3 at 60 Fps?

  • Angel C says:

    This whole thing about quantum computing and quantum mechanics seem so
    interesting to me. I try to do some research to be able to understand it,
    But the more i read the more i get lost. It could be due to the fact that
    we dont know much about it, or maybe i need to go back to school and study
    physics or something related to that field.

  • QuantumBraced says:

    Yeah, that thing is not a quantum computer. But it’s a good thing people
    are thinking. Still, not a quantum computer. And it shouldn’t be used as a
    poster boy for one, because then that can undermine the development of
    actual quantum computers.

  • Lewis Sofia says:

    You go Google & NASA take the Quantum LeapI I think quantum computers are
    so cool I am going to name my next cat Qubit! :)

  • DigidyDOG Gaming says:

    I am just amazed that the worlds first Quantum Computer didn’t take up an
    entire building like the first computer did!

  • TheDamped says:

    Back when I was young, quantum computers used to fill a whole room! Now
    you youngsters blithely carry them around in your pockets. You take
    everything for granted! You god damned kids just take take take!
    Ahem, just practicing.

  • FredeGF says:

    Very cool that they’re doing this, but I don’t like the way they talk about
    multiverses as being on scientific grounds with well-established effects
    such as quantum tunneling and entanglement. Also, the quote in the
    beginning stems from Niels Bohr, not Richard Feynman..

  • tenybeny says:

    For some people out there that don’t understand when something is both a 1
    and 0 that make 3 options possible (1, 0, and then mixed) instead of 2 (1
    and 0), that also means that it has the possibility of “reading” multiple
    things literally at the same time for example instead of it having to
    “read” 8-16 numbers to “understand” something it only has to “read” 1-3 for
    the same amount of information. Plus it can literally predict what its
    going to be “told” to do, in other words it know what to do before
    “reading” the actual code.

    D-Wave has doubled the number of Q-bits their (questionably) quantum
    computer chip can handle. At some point, Quantum computers will out-think
    people in ways we can barely imagine. Here’s a flashy video to illustrate:

    A link to a Wired article that explains why the D-wave computer is
    questionably a quantum “computer”:

    And a link to the D-wave news story on KurzweilAI:

  • FarryEntertainment says:

    The way we think, is not a “standard” way of thinking. A lot of animals on
    this planet think faster and can remember longer than humans. Now imagine
    that if you were born, the whole universe would have been different. A
    universe without light, without gravity, without anything we know. The
    universe we are in right now, is not a “standard” universe. It is not that
    it was all meant to be like this. We are in this universe, so we are also
    RANDOM. Our way of thinking is a complete random way of thinking. We could
    have thought in very different ways, that we can not imagine.

    Machines are nothing but physical objects. Even if computers could become
    more intelligent than humans, it could be in a very different way. The fact
    that they could speak like us or solve OUR problems faster, doesn’t mean
    anything about their intelligence, it only means something compared to our
    intelligence, so since our intelligent is RANDOM, we can never measure
    intelligence from a “standard” perspective. (Sorry for my english)
