This video may (or may not) help someone understand quantum computing without a pre-existing grasp of it. However, minimally it proffers itself as a baby-step introduction to a path of greater appreciation if one were to continue taking more steps.
A fundamental concept is that quantum computing isn’t just a more powerful version of the computers we use today; it’s something else entirely, based on emerging scientific understanding — and more than a bit of uncertainty.
The concept that a non-binary foundation for computational architecture even exists may be one of the first challenges to embrace on a path towards greater understanding.
A respect that the development of actual quantum computers is still in its infancy may also help establish a flexible enough personal framework for building greater apprehension.
Regardless of any improved understanding, or not, Shohini Ghose does posit how quantum computing holds the potential to transform medicine, create unbreakable encryption and even teleport information.
