Not even IBM is sure where its quantum computer experiments will lead

Not even IBM is sure where its quantum computer experiments will lead | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
At IBM's inaugural Index Developer Conference held in San Francisco this week, the company showed off its latest prototype: a quantum computing rig housing 50 qubits, one of the most advanced machines currently in existence.
Al Cannistra's insight:

what a thought...  i guess it may take them where no man has gone before.....   the adventure is just beginning each time!

IBM scientists have captured 330TB of uncompressed data into a tiny cartridge

IBM scientists have captured 330TB of uncompressed data into a tiny cartridge | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
In a new world record, scientists at IBM have captured 330 terabytes of uncompressed data — or the equivalent of 330 million books — into a cartridge that can fit into the palm of your hand
Al Cannistra's insight:

LOOK CLOSE - that is a TB not a GB.... staggering amount of data!

IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service

IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
Quantum computing is a difficult area of technology to understand. Instead of being built on machines interpreting zeroes and ones in on/off states, quantum computers can live in multiple states. This creates all kinds of new programming possibilities and requires new software and systems to build programs that can work with this way of computing.
Al Cannistra's insight:

we are going to need a new generation just to understand how to use these things - unless - maybe they can build them to understand us humans!
