Quantum computing already exists, but on a truly miniscule scale. We’ll probably have molecular computers before true quantum ones, says the physicist.

    2019 and no molecular computer. But we have the IBM Quantum computer, so maybe quantum computers are the next technology after all.

    Great video sir. I want to understand quantum field theory. Please make a video regarding this theory.



  3. Mina Ragy on November 10, 2019 at 6:07 pm

    I don’t know but multiplying 3 * 5 = 15 is more like memorizing that 3 * 5 = 15
    WHAT KIND OF LOGIC APPLIES TO ONLY ON CASE !

    I think this video is a little outdated

    the best explanation of Quantum Computer in YouTube.. thanks 🙂

    Let make this happen this is our time

    kaku seems to have no idea what the church-turing thesis is.

    This video is close to 10 years since upload. I don’t see ourselves reaching the limit anytime soon.



  12. WTAtalk on November 10, 2019 at 6:15 pm

    What about the D-wave quantum computer? Not that i believe in any quantum. Those scientists need to match their lies better



  13. MisterHolaMan on November 10, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    what if one runs a schrödinger equation in a quantum processor with a cubit in place of the wave function ? 🙃

    This guy was damn right 7years ago… About moore’s law



  16. Kolby Brian2412 on November 10, 2019 at 6:22 pm

    There not called gaming computers that’s why it’s not MORE POWERFUL



  17. Ethiopia Mel on November 10, 2019 at 6:24 pm

    So we are going to make Brainiac just like Krypton Superman’s homeland.



  18. Ramses Vasquez on November 10, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    Indeed….Thank you, now if we could only get the computer of our own brains to process  at those speeds, ai would b allowed to be expanded into a greater freedom than before thought possible.  What I mean is if we turn molecular computing into organic molecular computing and thus we ourselves become our own needed personal computers?  We’d do away with bill gates, Ubuntu, and Sun Microsystems, as well as a lot of our tech gadgets, but its…. absurd…..harr harr I did not understand quantum computing one quanta, now I do at least its most generalized machinations.  Theorists are too busy theorizing about physics to notice other people’s shortcomings in their personal rationales so they just by pass them…..if we could do the same with nosey neighbors



  19. Charliee Weber on November 10, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    Interesting update. Just this week, 9/15/19 +/-, a quatum computer made a calculation the a top IBM would take 10,000 yrs to complete. Here’s the link. …

    (note* In a vid link there is interesting info on the future of medicine.)

    IBM has proved you wrong on the molecular before quantum front!

    What about anti matter computers

    shit! its 2019 now and i just getting started with programming as a career and shit this guy said mechanical computer will become obsolete in a decade or so and IBM backed him! fuck me and my last 2 year.

    btw, hell! i just commented "how do program a quantum computer?" on a video and this sucker shows in my youtube recommendations!



  25. Ali Jabari on November 10, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    this is by far the best quantom computer definision I’ve ever heard
    thank you so much

    Oh, god. This video is out-of-date.
    World record is the calculation of 15?

    Boy was he wrong!!!

    who watches goolge quantum supremacy 2019 ?



  33. MADFUNK on November 10, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    Checked the date of release after he said "the Pentium chip".



  34. Muntakimur Rahman on November 10, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    Now We have Quantum Computers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  35. Jack Canducci on November 10, 2019 at 6:47 pm

    Casually watching in 2019, google just hit quantum supremacy. Yeah so about that molecular computer theory……



  36. Shane Dahle on November 10, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    If there is coherence and decoherence, could you not recohere them in another process? One not thought of yet, but manipulate them so they stay in a similar state if they start to decohere? Then you may be able to stabilize on a micro scale



  37. Tikus Keriting on November 10, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    you say… still can’t beat human’s brain technology,
    why don’t we inject those tech into human’s brain (dead man) and let them do the calculation?

  40. momsbasementnerd4ever on November 10, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    cant we phase hold atoms in stasis like freeze frame with decoherrence just have program or another comp run probability program its trajectory to the closest state the frame was caught i.n real time smh



  41. Luke Passos on November 10, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    why do they always ask this same asian dude for everything



  42. Lucas alves da silva on November 10, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    Just like the atoms in your body, making it useless 😂

    It is created now. Quantum Computer.. DWAVE. They freeze the electron

    "O my God"? I thought you did not believe in God? God always wins, doesn’t he? I wonder why non believers can’t see this? O, it’s because ‘clever people’ try to comprehend the universe without apprehending it first, thus remaining spiritually blind to the obvious. Here is what Jesus showed me, who also made atoms by the way…..that the born again spirit man of a christian must remain in the superposition of the Holy Ghost in order to know God and receive knowledge [true belief] from him. We are not autonomous ‘gods’ but rather fragile creatures totally dependent on god;s grace.and knowledge found in the kjb. Remember, the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing and on their way to hell. Also, the technology from fallen angels or nephilim is foolishness to God. Fallen, sinful humans are trying to make man immortal through A.I. It just wont work! Only Jesus can freely give you eternal Life/.



  45. JNCressey on November 10, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    But… how to program a quantum computer?



  46. Karl Schaal on November 10, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    Pretty sure he just called me a dumbass



  47. Crypto Currency Home on November 10, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    Dr.Kaku always breaks it down for the everyday person to understand. I love this man… Ive been watching videos on quantum computers all last week amd stills couldnt understand it until this video.



  48. My NewPhone on November 10, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    This stupid dumbsss couldn’t progam a fucking a washing machine.



  49. Hai BN Tran on November 10, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    Network in quantum…??
