Quantum biology examines quantum effects inside cells. This is a tricky field, as physicists are not comfortable working with messy biological systems, while biologists are not comfortable with complex (and seemingly irrelevant) particle physics equations.
They’ve been the stuff of science fiction for decades and promised by technology companies for almost as long. Although existing quantum computers can be computed on the fingers of one hand, their … Read the rest
The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that you can never simultaneously know the exact position and the exact speed of an object. Why not? Because everything in the universe behaves like both a particle and a wave at the same time. … Read the rest
Why Google’s Quantum Computing Project Is A Game Changer.
With Google’s record calculation speed from their supercomputer, Sycamore, we are suddenly looking at answering the questions that puzzled some of science’s greatest minds. But even better, we’re looking at possibly … Read the rest
Quantum Computing has the potential to change our lives and far exceed the capabilities of today’s supercomputers. Join James Clarke, Director of Quantum Computing at Intel Labs, as he runs through the basics of quantum mechanics, what components make up … Read the rest
Quantum computers aren’t the next generation of supercomputers—they’re something else entirely. Before we can even begin to talk about their potential applications, we need to understand the fundamental physics that drives the theory of quantum computing. (Featuring Scott Aaronson, John … Read the rest
Atoms are very weird. Wrapping your head around exactly how weird, is close to impossible – how can you describe something that is SO removed from humans experience? But then again, they kind of make up everything, so let us … Read the rest
