The race to make the world’s most powerful computer ever

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-45273584

Quantum computers have long been touted as incredibly powerful machines that will be able to solve hugely complex computational problems much faster than any computer we have available today. But no-one can agree on the best way to make them. Who will win the race?

Superfast quantum computers could speed up the discovery of new medicines, crack the most complex cryptographic security systems, design new materials, model climate change, and supercharge artificial intelligence, computer scientists say.

But there’s currently no consensus on the best way to make them or how to make them available to the mass market.

Physicists, engineers and computer scientists around the world are trying to develop four very different types of quantum computers, based around light particles, trapped ions, superconducting qubits, or nitrogen-vacancy centres in diamonds.

Companies like IBM, Google, Rigetti, Intel and Microsoft are currently leading the quantum charge.

Each method has its pros and cons, but the overarching challenge is the fragile nature of quantum itself.

bigger, faster, powerful..

“Superfast quantum computers could speed up the discovery of new medicines, crack the most complex cryptographic security systems, design new materials, model climate change, and supercharge artificial intelligence, computer scientists say.”

“model climate change”..the fuck?

your models dont work no matter what quantum computers you want to use..

“But there’s currently no consensus on the best way to make them or how to make them available to the mass market.”

oh..lol?

    who has the control over diamonds (and gold) since ever? sensing the future? or just privileged information?

    All,
    The article below is not that interesting in my opinion, except I suggest reading through the bullet points below found in the article:

    – Everybody is measured by a score between 350 and 950, which is linked to their national identity card. While currently supposedly voluntary, the government has announced that it will be mandatory by 2020.
    – The system is run by two companies, Alibaba and Tencent, which run all the social networks in China and therefore have access to a vast amount of data about people’s social ties and activities and what they say.
    – In addition to measuring your ability to pay, as in the United States, the scores serve as a measure of political compliance. Among the things that will hurt a citizen’s score are posting political opinions without prior permission, or posting information that the regime does not like, such as about the Tienanmen Square massacre that the government carried out to hold on to power, or the Shanghai stock market collapse.
    – It will hurt your score not only if you do these things, but if any of your friends do them. Imagine the social pressure against disobedience or dissent that this will create.
    – Anybody can check anyone else’s score online. Among other things, this lets people find out which of their friends may be hurting their scores.
    – Also used to calculate scores is information about hobbies, lifestyle, and shopping. Buying certain goods will improve your score, while others (such as video games) will lower it.
    – Those with higher scores are rewarded with concrete benefits. Those who reach 700, for example, get easy access to a Singapore travel permit, while those who hit 750 get an even more valued visa.
    – Sadly, many Chinese appear to be embracing the score as a measure of social worth, with almost 100,000 people bragging about their scores on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.

    The video below goes over Chinese surveillance and their Social Credit system. Really in-depth video with journalists reporting in the field in China. The Social Credit is based on numerous things, including political reliability. Twitter, Amazon, and Facebook is the breeding ground and ready capability in the West. China has their own versions of these internet websites, which are directly already used for the surveillance and Social Credit, e.g. Alibaba.

  3. I found the following article very interesting due to the detective work done to track down ‘controllers’ of reddit conspiracy subs (it comes down to two moderators who moderate 90% of all conspiracy subs at reddit). I enjoyed the detective work; the article writer went step by step (not too detailed) on how they tracked this down and more. The detective work was in his third point of the article linked below. The following quote was in his second point (it seems his “everything” is within a certain context, so not really “all internet websites” from what I understand):

    “UNDERSTAND – EVERYTHING is going to go offline at some point, save 8ch. You won’t be able to find news outside of it, very soon. And when you’re there, there’s not going to be any vote tallies, or recognizable names to tell you how to think, or what’s important to pay attention to. You can’t see u/NeonRevolt, or u/SerialBrain2 or u/Whoever, because we will all ultimately be #Anons. UNDERSTAND – There’s not going to be a Reddit, or a Voat, or a Gab, possibly even a Neon Revolt in the coming months.
    There’s only going to be 8ch.”
