How Quantum Computers Work
The reservoir of possibilities offered by the fundamental laws of Nature, is the key point in the development of science and technology. Quantum computing is the next step on the road to broaden our perspective from which we currently look at the Universe. The movie shows the history of progress in this fascinating field of science, introduces the most promising models and algorithms, explains the advantages of quantum computers over classical solutions, and finally presents wonderful people thanks to whom the quality of our lives is constantly being improved.
Even if you don’t want to understand the video, please watch until the end at least to realise how big the human thirst is for knowledge.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that all of the necessary information about the authors who were kind enough to share their work, are displayed in the end credits.
Technological giants have announced that the launch of quantum computers is imminent. These machines are capable of performing more complicated calculations than supercomputers and could revolutionize fields like finance and drug development.
HARNESSING QUANTUM MECHANICS
Marshall McLuhan, a media theorist of the past generation, once said, “The computer is the most extraordinary of man’s technological clothing… beside it, the wheel is a mere hula hoop.” Next to quantum computers, perhaps our classical computers will look like simple gameboys.
Quantum computers use the principles of quantum physics to perform calculations impossible for a classical computer to handle accurately because of their delicacy, intricacy, or multifaceted nature. So, how do they work?
In classical computing, a single piece of information is called a “bit” and is either a 1 or a 0. The two properties quantum computers use to disrupt this binary are “quantum superposition” and “quantum entanglement.” Quantum superposition allows quantum bits (“qubits”) to be a 0 and 1 simultaneously. Quantum entanglement entwines multiple qubits, allowing for a greater number of calculations.
