Intel explaining Quantum Computing


Intel has released a new video talking about quantum computing, a probably biggest technology advancements to date.

While current classical computers are based on bits, which encode information as a series of ones and zeros, quantum computers operate on a different scale, using quantum bits, usually referred to as qubits, which can be represented in multiple states, one, zero or a combination of one and zero.

“When you flip a coin, it lands either heads or tails. That’s binary,” explained James Clarke, director of Intel’s Quantum Hardware. “Now think of spinning that coin on its edge. Is it a one or a zero? It’s actually both at the same time.”

The quantum leap, as it is referred to, will bring significant improvements in artificial intelligence and cryptography, as well as bring a vastly improved security.
