What does this equal in normal computing terms?
[QUOTE=Doctor_Communism;27544754]What does this equal in normal computing terms?[/QUOTE] The two aren't directly comparable. Quantum computing is useful for dealing with data in sets, making it (exceptionally) efficient for cracking all known hashes... all at once.
[QUOTE=Flapadar;27544794]The two aren't directly comparable. Quantum computing is useful for dealing with data in sets, making it (exceptionally) efficient for cracking all known hashes... all at once.[/QUOTE] So, like, over four GHz?
[QUOTE=Doctor_Communism;27544816]So, like, over four GHz?[/QUOTE] Quantum computing is instantaneous, you can't compare it to GHz. Unless I read stuff wrong. Basically, what you can get out of it is limited - as soon as you try to look at the data, it's destroyed. Eigenstates allow you to get what passed the conditions before the data was destroyed.

That's a load of qubits! Wait until they get to 100 billion qubits!

What happens if you shake it?
[QUOTE=Nikita;27529209]To be more precise, you instantly know what was the state of the other particle when they were entangled. It's like having two letters, in one you write something and on the other you do not. Then you shuffle them so you don't know which is which. One letter you leave there and one you take with you somewhere. Then, in a remote location you look at the letter, and immediately know if something is written on the other one or not. Quantum entanglement cannot be used to transfer information between particles because, in essense, you are carrying the information about the other particle with you but only discovering it after the other particle is away. Such information is basically outdated.[/QUOTE] I never understood why it had to be described as remote action in any way. I'm tempted to blame sensationalist science reporting but there's also the unfortunate chance that physicists are just completely retarded but good at maths.
[QUOTE=DarkSpider;27525865] Can it play Crysis?[/QUOTE] We can only hope.
[QUOTE=mr_fj;27553768]What happens if you shake it?[/QUOTE] It doesn't get stirred.
[QUOTE=Randdalf;27526190]My university does quantum computing, so I might take a look at that if I get the chance. Also, 2 entangled particles have no time delay between copying each other right? So that might in the future mean instant wireless communication from anywhere in the universe, if it's not too pricey.[/QUOTE] Nah it operates at the speed of light, relativity has shown us through experiments that no information of any kind, including the physics perception of information (meaning absolutely anything and any interaction) is limited to light speed.

Measuring the state of one particle results into a value for the other also being determined in a certain way. Sadly the result of this measurement is totally random so you can't transmit information with it.

[QUOTE=Haxxer;27525923]Baby steps...[/QUOTE]This is leaps and bounds now, a process that allows 10 billion qubits to be created is well on the way to mass-production. [QUOTE=yawmwen;27536300]I think it would be as simple as fixing the entangled atoms, since that is the part that interfaces. I don't think it really matters that much what the quantum particles are doing as long as they are unobserved and entangled.[/QUOTE]It'd be the same as replacing any damaged computer piece i.e. throwing it out and getting a new one.
[QUOTE=ZombieWaffle;27543100]technology moves fast very fast computers were invented only ~50 years ago[/QUOTE] What about that computer used to decode the enigma messages in WWII, that was 30's/40's wasn't it?
Can it run doom?
[QUOTE=Dr Kevorkian;27563964]What about that computer used to decode the enigma messages in WWII, that was 30's/40's wasn't it?[/QUOTE] That was an electromechanical machine, while by definition it is a computer, it's not quite what is implied by today's usage of the word. By definition, an abacus is a computer as well.
