Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology

Quantum Computers Explained – Limits of Human Technology

Where are the limits of human technology? And can we somehow avoid them? This is where quantum computers become very interesting.

    Thats crazy. A bit can have two states, but then has to collapse? That’s incredible!

    Can somebody help me to find my brain?

    Ook so wat is going on🤓



  9. Murtaza Malak on September 15, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    I have seen like a dozen of videos on Quantum computers , each time thinking that this will be the video that will expalain to me finally, but NO i still have no damn clue as to how it works….



  10. Michael Neuffer on September 15, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    I don’t fucking get it

    0*1 is 0 not 1
    0+1 is 1 not 0

    A Computer that thinks whit light must be faster. The only thing that is slowing things now is the elektronics.



  14. Don't subscribe please on September 15, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    My brain is trying focused on this video
    Instead of understanding it
    I just getting confused
    Is this because my brain slowly processing it or I just didn’t focus enough?



  15. PIXELTRONIX on September 15, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    Vid was good . But I dident understand anything



  16. rida ak on September 15, 2019 at 7:57 pm

    future programmers need a Ph.D. in quantum physics just to make a computer print hello world hahaha wait am a high school student D’Ohhhh

    what he just say??

    My question is HOW THE HELL CAN A COMPUTER PART BE SMALLER THAN A VIRUS?!

    There are definitely Pokemon fans at kurzgesagt….. Spotted 5 videos featuring Pokemon already.



  25. Kunal Chaudhari on September 15, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    My brain does not possess the processing to imagine about the intelligence of my computer and my computer in turn does not have the processing power to predict what might be the processing power of quantum computers

  28. Marqan on September 15, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    This explanation doesn’t make much sense to me.
    You’re saying that these qubits havea a superpoisition, where it contains more information than 1 or 0. Interpreting that information sounds like looking at a rainbow and asking "which ONE color is it?". In that case you either get a confusing answer from a qubit, or most of the information is useless in it.
    You also said that at the point of measurement the qubit falls out of superposition. That implies to me that it would constantly have to fall in and out of superposition whenever it’s changed inside a computer. Because if you want to know what information a qubit is carrying, you have to measure it, and to change it in a meaningful way, you have to know what information it has. Unless you knew the exact states and outcomes from the beginning, but that makes the whole process useless and doable with conventional computers.

    This would mean that the superposition property, which is the main (only?) advantage of quantum computing is ultimately useless.

    this is too much for the two transistors that i call brain cells

    nobody’s asking the real question here
    can it play minecraft ?



  35. Blaze The Blazer on September 15, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    So… "Qubit" is actually electron?



  36. Ro Inspire on September 15, 2019 at 8:25 pm

    Quantum : Yes.

    i was watching this and was heating up a pan i turned on the gas and forgot to fire it (its not an electrical oven) i was so hooked by the video that i left it for a minute or so the gas made a small explosion that shaked the house and the fire almost caught me that wouldnt have happend if i had today’s sponser brilliant. brilliant gives you access to courses on everything starting from ovens to quantum mechanics download it and use this code ‘thisstoryislegit’ at checkout or visit brilliant org/iturnedmyneardeathexperienceintoajoke to get 20% off your annual subscription.

    *I’m in a superposition of understanding this video and also not understanding it, also known as superconfused*



  43. Michael // BetterLife Project on September 15, 2019 at 8:32 pm

    3:20 Question: how does the photon wave direction measurement work since they can be diagonal and all directs other than horizontal and vertical. I thought they were going to use the circular polarization for the 0 and 1. Any one care to explain?

    This video just made me stupider
