END OF AN ERA, FRACTALFORUMS.COM IS CONTINUED ON FRACTALFORUMS.ORG

it was a great time but no longer maintainable by c.Kleinhuis contact him for any data retrieval,
thanks and see you perhaps in 10 years again

this forum will stay online for reference

seems like theyre always making some supposed crucial breakthrough.  i'll believe it when i can own a quantum computer, which of course will not actually happen in my lifetime  grin

indeed, figuring out how to code for it will take some time but it's interesting to observe the evolution, a device that switches using one electron is going to be fast, very fast. If these devices can be produced with current technology in manufacturing, then it might be happening sooner than you think, unless you are very old, over 50? wink

There's a paper showing quantum computing is no different to analog computing. There's nothing different or mysterious that you can do with it. It is just an analog computer but faster.

It is nice to see the next step. But once they have been able to develop a quantumcomputers things such as other hardware and security should be improved too to prevent problems. (I guess qubits can make the hacking of systems used nowadays much easier and faster, I would say that these should be improved first.) As for the hardware I think RAM should be improve to make quantumcomputers work.

Motivation is like a salt, once it has been dissolved it can react with things it comes into contact with to form something interesting. nerd
