A beginner's guide to quantum computing | Shohini Ghose

A quantum computer isn’t just a more powerful version of the computers we use today; it’s something else entirely, based on emerging scientific understanding — and more than a bit of uncertainty. Enter the quantum wonderland with TED Fellow Shohini Ghose and learn how this technology holds the potential to transform medicine, create unbreakable encryption and even teleport information.

  • Literally nobody:
    TedTalks : Beginner's guide to quantum computing 🙄🙄

  • Lol the new scam game is start and she try to find some fool people like in a crypto owner was from Albania she theft much money and still FBI search for her 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • No matter how accurate and sophisticated a quantum computer is, winning that coin game 98% of the time is impossible.
    Tell me, when the only thing about the game that is changing is the input of the user, how that quantum computer computes the answer?
    If you think I'm wrong please show me the path to understand this mystery.

  • is this another analog computer?

  • So you're saying that we could use this computer to create a encryption key- couldn't hackers then use another quantum computer to break it?

  • Quantum computing sounds like bunk science, as it invokes the idea that data can be simultaneously defined, undefined, and partially defined. How can encryption function in quantum computing if the encryption key simultaneously defined and undefined? That doesn't sound very secure at all. What am I missing here?

  • Why I feel like quantum follows the fusion suit?

  • Nothing is impossible, computers have come a long way. like the D-Wave, a quantum Bit computer. maybe one-day A.I. will make people Immortal or Biological Androids.

  • 🆙⬆️Hit her up ⬆️ ☝️☝️that handle, she’s got the best tips and stuffs for microdosing shrooms, psych meds, dmt trips, psilocybin and ships too🍄🍄🍄

  • The circle or square and heads or tails is a clue as to how this process works. Had they asked people to simply choose heads or tails and not gone through the circle square conversion it would not work because people would suspect that they were placing a bet and this would interfere with the process. Also the people were asked to choose ahead of time and were all in various locations were all obviously unaware that everyone else also had been asked to choose.. It would seem that these separation techniques of square and circle to coin flip (heads or tails) and the time and space separation are key to making this process happen. 3:20 "You didn't know it but your choice of circle meant flip the coin and your choice of square was don't flip"

  • I just watched a video about how entanglement couldn’t be used to send information faster than light because you don’t realize it’s entanglement and not just a particle collapsing without being in contact with the other person who’s observing the entangled particle

  • easy! just convert your self in quantum particles and
    now you can teleport
    sounds like sci-fi, no its not

  • I am left completely unsatisfied regarding her explanation as to why the quantum computer achieved such a remarkable win rate.

    I’m fine with the fluidity portion prior to the end result, is it sort of like a Monty Hall kinda thing where the quantum computer has the ability to make a significantly higher number of changes/choices as opposed to the human and standard computer?

    I have essentially zero knowledge when it comes to quantum computers, every video/article etc. loves to focus on the superposition thing which is fine, but her explanation for the QC success rate, at least with my level of understanding, is wholly lacking if her audience is supposedly those like myself.

  • this is an amazing invention and it is a tragedy that it's being used to exacerbate private property , making the rich even richer and the poor even poorer

  • I'm confused why quantum computing gets to play with Pythagorean numerical divination, while I'm getting booted out of 6th grade maths and music theory class, for stating: Riemann and Riemann rhyme no matter which way you look; hear or spin it. Seriously!¡

  • So you are trying to tell us you are building a super cheating computer.

  • Excellent talk. Thank you

  • How does the computer not see the outcome? I genuinely want to hear how one could write such a computer. Quantum or Binary computer.

    The outcome is stored in memory I'm thinking.
    Rabbit hole much

  • I like the part where she goes on about how quantum physics or quantum computers are non-binary as opposed to the ones and zeros of standard computers, and then the example they use is a coin flip game, which is literally a binary heads or tails / 1 and 0 game. and then she tries to talk about teleportation which is not even like a thing in quantum mechanics, yes there are discrete States of energy, but you can't literally transmit information using entanglement like that otherwise you could break the speed of light

  • Why not just destroy quantum computers. The people were happier and more at peace without this junk

  • Scam….deposited R500 Then traded..i lost..when i log in the software i must register it again…i was just trying it then boom R500 gone in 5sec…another way of making money out of the poor👎it not the money am worried about its how u selling it…guys carry on with what uve been trading with

  • I am a software engineer and i am so into quantum computing. but still do not really know to start for sure!

  • Nothing was said in this talk. Ten blank minutes…

  • I envisaged quantum computers as the path to revealing IT Conscienceness(ITC) ..!

    We can never ourself discover ITC for ourselves…!
    Its very much up to the Computers to decipher it by itself… , unwittingly, of course…!

    (1). Where "0 & 1" present simultaneously….!
    (2) +0. , – 0. , – 1. , +1 present simultaneously in ITC…!

    CHEERIO…! 🙏 ❤️

  • Next will be cosmic computering

  • What a talk, just amazing

  • Sounds like cheating to me, because what the computer’s doing is just like putting the coin vertically and without even looking at your play, and then let’s you play , if you choose not to play the coin will stay vertical, otherwise if you play your flip will be like a 360 degrees turn to the vertically standing coin, so it stays vertical either way. then the computer will have the last play choosing to flip the coin 90 degrees to the right or left depending on where the winning side will be. So It won without even knowing your plays.
