Kurzgesagt quantum computers
Quantum Computing is powered by phenomena in Quantum Mechanics. For example, we all know that a dropped object falls to the ground due to gravity. But wait, that observation is still an assumption. My point is, classical physics is all built on assumptions. If you were born unconscious, and suddenly became conscious 7 years afterwards, you would not understand the physics around you. So take an open mindset and challenge your fundamental principles, as we figure out how Quantum Mechanics powers Quantum Computing. This is a great place to start understanding the power of Quantum Computers. Wait, what does that mean? This phenomenon is known as superposition. You have a superposition of both a 1 and 0 at the same time.
The exponential growth of computing technology from the s and '70s to now is one of the greatest achievements of modern science. But it doesn't really matter how far we've come if we're about to hit the limit for what we can accomplish. Our computers might be pretty awesome already, but the parts we've been reliant on have just about hit their physical limits - they're approaching the size of an atom, and it doesn't get much smaller than that. So what's next? Well we're figuring out how to fight quantum physics with quantum physics to build the computers of the future, and this video by Kurzgesagt is here to explain how. First up, if we're going to understand the conundrum that we're in, thanks to the physical limits of our current computing technology, we need to understand how our computers actually work right now. You probably know that computers use a binary code made up of 1s and 0s to write complex instructions that are processed by an internal network of computer chips, modules, logic gates, and transistors, but do you know exactly how all of this fits together? If not, don't worry - the video above has got your back. Now that we've got that cleared up, we can talk about why quantum physics is suddenly making all of this much harder to improve upon as we have been over the past half-century. Transistors are basically just tiny electric switches that move electrons from one place to another, and when I say tiny, I mean TINY.
When someone asks me about quantum computing —what it is, how it works, where they can learn about it—I like to start them off with this video. Also, these guys are fun and engaging, and the animation is solid. If you need more than that, stay tuned to this blog in the future. It explains how classical computers work—circuits, basic modules, logic gates, and transistors. Then it covers our current situation. Computers have been getting smaller and faster at a predictable rate. As part of that, transistors have been getting smaller. Like really small. Smaller than a virus. Namely, the size of an atom.
