The Computers of Our Wildest Dreams

The Computers of Our Wildest Dreams
Engineers at IBM and Google claim they're closer than ever to making computers that could process data in days that would take millions of years to flow through today's machines.

Quantum computing promises processing speeds and heft that seem unimaginable by today’s standards. A working quantum computer—linked up to surveillance technology, let's say—might be able to instantly identify a single individual in real-time by combing through a database that includes billions of faces. Such a computer might also be able to simulate a complex chemical reaction, or through the toughest encryption tools in existence. (There’s an entire field of study dedicated to post-quantum cryptography. It’s based on writing algorithms that could withstand an attack by a quantum computer. People still aren't sure if such security is even possible, which means quantum computing could wreak havoc on global financial systems, governments, and other institutions.)

It’s often said that a working quantum computer would take days to solve a problem that a classical computer would take millions of years to sort through. Now, theoretical ideas about the development of such machines—long relegated to the realm of mathematical formula—are being turned into computer chips.

“As we started making these better controlled, engineered systems that do the physics as written down in the textbook, we start to engage more theorists and people who are more interested in these systems actually existing,” said Jerry Chow, the manager of the experimental quantum computing group at IBM. “It's definitely exciting because we're starting to really make systems which are of interest in terms of not only potential applications but also underlying physics.”

Never in my wildest dreams!

So first a little bit of my car history. My first BMW was a 2001 330Ci and I loved her dearly. You couldn't tell me that I didn't have the fastest car in the world. But I've always loved coupes and never had one until that car. In fact every car I've had since then has never had more than two doors. I figure, why have all those doors when I don't have any kids? Life was great, that is until I ran into a guy that posed the simple question and turned my world on its head. He asked, "Why didn't you...

Having dreams about sleeping with another woman...

Just to provide some context, I am happily married, never cheated, but i've been having dreams about sleeping with another woman. My wife is white from Canada (Romanian immigrant), the woman i'm sleeping with in my dreams is a light skinned black woman, from Atlanta whom i've never seen before a day in my life. Why wouldn't it be something more closely related to my "Conscious" reality? This isn't a srs thread by any means, but can anyone provide any reasoning behind why this might be?...

10Gbps Fiber Between 2 Computers

I have a Plex media server that has about 10TB of movies that are in the MKV format. This computer has a quad core AMD Phenom II processor, not the best for converting all these movies to an h.264 format. That is why I have an HP Proliant Ml150 g6 with dual quad core Xeons that I plan on using for converting all of these movies using handbrake. I would like to convert movies over the network, as I do not have enough storage on the converting server to copy over more than half a dozen bluray rips...

This is getting complicated. Streaming between two computers...possible?

So I want to Stream a game on one computer (tower), and send the gameplay to broadcast software on another computer(laptop). Is this even possible? Using an HDMI splitter, or serial port, or capture card? The Tower has three video outputs(two hdmi,serial port) The laptop has two outputs (MiniDV and HDMI). How can I set this up? :confused: ...

Wiping Guest Accounts on computers

Hello!  I support around 115 users at our school and we currently allow our students to login under a "Guest" account.  (We are in an Elementary School).  We are wanting to wipe the profiles each time a student logs out.  Is this possible?  We don't want to use deep freeze as it is kind of a pain when doing administrative tasks.  We still need to allow updates for Windows and for our Enterprise Antivirus.  Any suggestions?...

Best place to purchase office 2013 for business computers?

I am picking out and setting up 5 new computers for a business. Currently they are using PC's with Windows XP and Office 2003. They want Office 2013. What is the best option to go with? They need the full suite. I see office 365 says it an support up to 5 devices. But I'm not sure if that means that 5 different users can have it, or that a single user can use it on 5 devices.

How to separate personalization options between computers?

So here is my situation:   I have one computer running Windows 8.1, and the other one is dual-booting Windows 7 and the new Windows Technical Preview. I want to have Windows set up so that when I change personalization options on either 8.1 or the technical preview, it doesn't force the changes on my other computer.   For example, if I am on the computer running the technical preview, and I change the wallpaper, the wallpaper on my computer running Windows 8.1 changes to match, but I d...
