Quantum Computer may Debut Next Week

Techworld is reporting that D-Wave, a heavily funded Canadian company, plans to debut a "quantum computer" next week. This computing device "can carry out 64,000 calculations simultaneously (in parallel 'universes'), thanks to a new technique which rethinks the already-uncanny world of quantum computing."

Parallel Universes? Sounds like Star Trek to me, but judge for yourself at D-Wave's website - if nothing else they have some neat pictures. link

Well, I should have read the linked article first. It was this "I know something" reflex. Sorry. Nevertheless, I can recommend a book by Simon Singh:


It is pretty smart written.

Kind regards

This was actually sent to me from one of the contributors on my site ... along with the following nerdy joke:

Today I bought a quantum car that gets 400 miles per gallon, causes no pollution, can tell me the weather accurately for the next 3 years, and weighs only 100 kilos.

Unfortunately, the car only operates when there's nobody watching.

Get it?
