Andreas Pappas's insight:

Although the video is quite long, it manages to thoroughly address the concepts and difficulties behind developing a quantum super computer. Nevertheless, the language used though-out the video is somewhat complex and without an understanding of the metalanguage used it is difficult to follow. Therefore, this a good resource for those with an advanced knowledge and understanding of quantum computers.

Transistors & The End of Moore's Law - YouTube

How does a transistor work? And when will Moore's Law break down? Supported by TechNYou - check out their great series on the scientific method: http://bit.l...
Andreas Pappas's insight:

Explanation on how transistors work in classical computers. This demonstration of the limits of classical computers in their current form and the envitable end of  Moore's law. This shows why alternate technologies (one of which is quantum computing.) need to be developed for computers to still exponentially improve while progressing into the future.

Andreas Pappas's insight:

This video talks about the problems of computing on non-Turing type machines and quantum decoherence. This video is from 2011 and  is quite dated, Michio Kaku goes on to talk about the best achievement in quantum computing during the time of this video was a calculation 5 qubit machine. Today quantum computers with over 1000 qubits are being developed this showcases the advancement in this technological field since 2011.

How do you build a large-scale quantum computer?

How do you build a large-scale quantum computer? | Quantum Computing | Scoop.it

Physicists led by ion-trapper Christopher Monroe at the JQI have proposed a modular quantum computer architecture that promises scalability to much larger numbers of qubits. The components of this architecture have individually been tested and are available, making it a promising approach. In the paper, the authors present expected performance and scaling calculations, demonstrating that their architecture is not only viable, but in some ways, preferable when compared to related schemes.

Andreas Pappas's insight:

This article shows how scientists can increase the scale of quantum machine while still making them behave quantum mechanically by reading the qu-bits with lasers instead of conventional wiring.
