I think quantum computers are gonna have a *huge* impact on meteorology honestly Since quantum computers are more or less "made to predict" I really do wonder how accurately and how far ahead quantum computers are able to predict things like weather and natural disasters But unless there's some breakthrough and a room temperature superconductor is discovered, these things probably wouldn't happen within the next few decades

She should enter TBBT. The new wave she will amplify would increase ( oh well, i am out)

Non of those 5 persons could understand what she said. -_-

So did she use the computer to go forward in time to get all that gray hair? She’s way too young for all that gray

I'm reasonably convinced that the "quantum computer" she's telling us is there is actually just some elaborate nonsense construct, and the ACTUAL quantum computer looks exactly like a normal bloody computer does, except that wouldn't at all be impressive OR convincing in any way at all.....and so there we are... Also, others have already pointed this out but.....other than that first girl, Dr.G really does look like she could be close to the same age as every other person there......

I really enjoyed this video. I think this was a great way to explain an advanced topic. More videos need to be like this on other topics.
Just like any other branch of science, it's a branch of physics???

If you are knowledgable about encryption and quantum computers, please read. The professor at the end stated that there are other methods of encryption which don't require factorisation. Currently, the only encryption methods that I'm aware of which allow two parties to share information without already having a shared private key are based on the priniple that it is very difficult to reverse engineer the prime factors of extremely large numbers. The other method that he mentioned was having a quantum link, which is provably secure, however this would require both parties to have access to quantum hardware in order to communicate. Does anyone know of algorithms which can be used on traditional computers which allow two parties to securely share information, if they have not communicated before (and therefore do not already have any shared encryption keys)?

This was a great video to watch. She combines wisdom with youthfulness more than you usually observe in people. She has a great way to respond to the person she is engaging with. I would love to have coffee with her and chat about other topics.

Could you maybe do Neural Networks? I think it would fit into the series.

"You're trying to solve the problem and just like how you run out of space on your iPhone when you're trying to take a picture, if you're trying to solve the problem you just run out on space." Teen: "Huh." "... and even if you have the world's biggest supercomputer, did you know that can still happen?" Teen: "Wow." This is insanity.

Dr. Talia looks 65 but a voice of a 16 yr old comes out of her elderly mouth. Or did she use quantum computing on her voice ?

also might add you can crack passwords like instantly with a quantum computer. so bye bye bank accounts and hello 2-factor authentication. BTW Steam was year ahead on that one

I guess it’s time to try to understand quantum physics computers so by the time everyone catches up and start some moding them you’ll be a master and they’ll be a Padawan

The USB will still only get in the 3rd time so whats the point?

Maybe this is a STEM field women can actually get involved in since they are simultaneously in a state of yes and no and total entanglement all the time.

What are the problems we need quantum computing for again? Is it just so Skynet can take over and terminate us?
Level1: i know that Level2:uh.. huh.. learning everyday Level3: what are you guy talking about? Level4: HOLYSHIT STFU ALREADY Level5: **flat line**
