Editor's Notes

  1. Replica of a Zuse Z3, originally built in 1941
  2. Computers since then work with 0 and 1…
  3. ..except they don‘t. They need anything with two possible states.
  4. Today: Mostly transistors Depending on input either lets a big current through or not.
  5. Niels Bohr <- Werner Heisenberg (assistant, Copenhagen, 1920s) Left: Niels Bohr Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to the understanding of atomic structure and quantum theory Right: Werner Karl Heisenberg Nobel Prize in Physics for the creation of quantum mechanics in 1932 Also founder of the uncertainty principle, which is named after him Main contributors to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics
  6. Bohr & Heisenberg developed great parts of Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics
  7. Radioactive particle
  8. Radioactive particle
  9. Decay = emit radiation (here alpha particle)

  23. We have: Universe Schrödinger’s cat Quantum effect
  24. We have: Universe Schrödinger’s cat Quantum effect
  25. -> Zombie cat? No.
  26. Universe splits. Another quantum effect?
  27. Universe splits. Another quantum effect?
  28. It splits again.
  29. It splits again.
  30. And again. May notice: Many dead cats.
  31. And again. May notice: Many dead cats.
  32. Quantum system Can be |0> Can be |1> Can be arbetrary value on sphere

  43. IBM Research Staff Member Katie Pooley, an Applied Physics PhD from Harvard who joined IBM in 2015, at the Thomas J Watson Research Center, is a process integrator on the IBM Q team. In the photo, Pooley is examining a cryostat with the new prototype of a commercial quantum processor inside.
  44. IBM 7 Qubit Device IBM scientists have developed a new approach to simulate molecules on a quantum computer that may one day help revolutionize chemistry and materials science. The scientists successfully used six qubits on a purpose-built seven-qubit quantum processor to address the molecular structure problem for beryllium hydride (BeH2) – the largest molecule simulated on a quantum computer to date. The results demonstrate a path of exploration for near-term quantum systems to enhance our understanding of complex chemical reactions that could lead to practical applications.
