Skynet rising: Google acquires 512-Qubit Quantum Computer; NSA Surveillance to be Turned Over to AI Machines


Most people don’t know about the existence of quantum computers. Almost no one understands how they work, but theories include bizarre-sounding explanations like, “they reach into alternate universes to derive the correct answers to highly complex computational problems.”

Quantum computers are not made of simple transistors and logic gates like the CPU on your PC. They don’t even function in ways that seem rational to a typical computing engineer. Almost magically, quantum computers take logarithmic problems and transform them into “flat” computations whose answers seem to appear from an alternate dimension.

For example, a mathematical problem that might have 2 to the power of n possible solutions — where n is a large number like 1024 — might take a traditional computer longer than the age of the universe to solve. A quantum computer, on the other hand, might solve the same problem in mere minutes because it quite literally operates across multiple dimensions simultaneously.

  1. Just not true.. Usefully functional quantum computers are a theoretical possibility but a technical conundrum yet to be worked out. However it is plausible that a quantum computer would easily break any kind of modern encription, it wouldn’t have such an easy job with quantum encription witch is to become reality probably much sooner that any significant quantum computer.

    That being said.. Your privacy is already seriously threatened as is, no need for further technology..

      Just look at where the story came from – NaturalNews.

      NaturalNews is about as credible a source as FOX News is. They’re worthless.

      • So what evidence do you have that they are worthless? Or should we just take your word for it?

        • Simon Valentine | Jun 23, 2013 at 10:39 am |

          my quantums ate all the evidence

          how about
          because there would be news of how one of these is solving cancer? excuse me for not mentioning funding.

          case closed.

          • Kevin Leonard | Jun 23, 2013 at 12:01 pm |

            cancer is a billion dollars a year industry. you think there aren’t vested interests that would rather keep any cures covered up?

            Do you think that the government doesn’t have black budgets?

            while I agree that there is reason to be suspicious of articles that come from .Natural News, your argument is invalid

          • Simon Valentine | Jun 23, 2013 at 12:54 pm |

            it was intended to Not be the example, silly ;p

            that which is clearly the idea does not hinge on cancer, so your idea of your argument that you gave yourself by reading is invalid is something i think you’ll be too blind to notice.

          • Kevin Leonard | Jun 23, 2013 at 1:09 pm |

            so just to be clear, because I don’t want to misunderstand you again…

            you make a strong assertion followed by a non-argument and then resort to ad hominem attacks.

            okay. I’m remembering the reason why I trend to stay away from the comments section now

          • It’s hardly his fault that you don’t have a sense of humor or irony.

            You will fit in well with the new machine overlords.

          • Kevin Leonard | Jun 23, 2013 at 1:30 pm |

            you are, however, at fault for judging me based on two comments. I suppose this is how you base your opinions on the rest of the world as well?

            This the disinfo comments section.

          • “I suppose this is how you base your opinions on the rest of the world as well?”

            Your assumption makes complete, logical sense. (Seems I was wrong; you won’t fit in with the machine overlords, after all.)

          • Simon Valentine | Jun 23, 2013 at 11:55 pm |

            personally? you’re a cardinals fan or a troll. that’s not ad hominem. that’s being snide.

            there are too many assumptions built into all of it for anything except reality itself to be correct, yes?

            excuse me though. assumptions, axioms, positions, parameters, arguments, opinions, … et cetera. what’s the difference? the feels?

            alright. the fact that i can both think and not think that there aren’t vested interests that would rather keep any [sic] covered up is beside the point and exactly the point. this is a different realm yo. jus’sayin. lots more to be done to get mad politicull props than some stupid shenanigans like it’s being made out to be, yeah? that one’s not snide because i didn’t intend it to be. it just comes out naturally.

            if there’s something i missed, we’re all on the same side here, and this sentence is false?

            and just so we get it straight
            i like you
            i have no idea why
            i don’t really know you
            you’re mind is keen and i love to see a good mind set to the stone and moving front-line.

        • Microhero | Jun 23, 2013 at 11:08 am |

          They’re probably not completely worthless they made me look up other stuff about this and learn what it’s all about,

          These computers are just not what the article set’s them up to be.. The future maybe scary but there’s no reason to live in fear…

    • Noah_Nine | Jun 22, 2013 at 7:52 pm |

      still though….

    • Quantum encryption has been used for some time now (2010 World Cup is the first example that comes to mind). It’s even already been hacked.

      • Microhero | Jun 23, 2013 at 4:42 pm |

        I’m interested in knowing how the quantum encription was hacked.. could you share your source please?

        • Here ya go:


          It should be “.com” but I haven’t been able to post links lately.

    • Quantum computers have existed for a few years, apparently:


      And, of course, they sold it right away to Lockheed.

  2. Does this thing really compute using other dimensions or did Michio Kaku get drunk again and start talking out of his ass?

    I bring up Mr. Kaku because he’s known for getting a tad overexcited.

    • The confirmation of the existence of other dimensions would be a bigger breakthrough than the computer itself. No, it’s not running in Hyperspace or wherever.

      • Microhero | Jun 22, 2013 at 4:28 pm |

        Agree…” it quite literally operates across multiple dimensions simultaneously” is a bit of a stretch however thought provoking…

        Quantum phenomena is not easy (maybe not possible) to fully understand beyond the mathematical framework as our minds are not really wired to grasp it.

        • Simon Valentine | Jun 23, 2013 at 10:46 am |

          no one said anyone here was operating on the correct or let alone identical idea of dimension (identical to that of the reference, which itself is an inadequate reference).


          my name is simon
          and you all have an inadequate idea of dimension, including the reference of a reference of which you are a reference, but only in part, while another part of you evaluates.
          no offense.
          but you’ll quickly find that like the genesis of life bullshit
          no one who has any need for a quantum computer can build one
          such a thing is true both before and after
          petty consumers united and all
          in short
          not only did they not solve the dimension problem
          they didn’t build upon building up quantum tech to do so
          and lastly it would require a computer to do years worth of calculations to provide sufficient engineering evidence from which to construct a 512 bit quantum computer.

          so you go ahead and say that I am wrong and see where it gets you. maybe YOU’ll have one built. and yes, this is how it goes, i’m just a messenger.

          thank you
          bye byes

          so ends a generic message to any and all readers.

          • Microhero | Jun 23, 2013 at 10:59 am |

            Have no intention of saying you are wrong because It seems to me you didn’t say anything at all.

            You might be operating on a quantum level and trying out every possibility of some sort of comment simultaneously and by my act of obeservation I caused that wave to colapse to a state which is incomprehensible to me…Limited by my sensory perceptory aparatus… Sorry ’bout that.

            Oh, almost forgot… MAYBE YOU’LL HAVE ONE BUILT… 😛

          • Simon Valentine | Jun 23, 2013 at 12:52 pm |

            yes, yes i might (:

    • Noah_Nine | Jun 22, 2013 at 7:53 pm |

      “Dr.” Kaku……

  3. Frank_Black | Jun 22, 2013 at 3:10 pm |

    This article is bat shit fucking crazy.

    • Simon Valentine | Jun 23, 2013 at 10:41 am |

      because it is both true and false simultaneously, even though simultaneity is false, doesn’t exist, is a wrong idea, is an axiom from which anything and everything may be true, et cetera, or rather more accurately is exactly none of those things and more like a black hole, a void in the hand of a judge?

    For the record, I for one would welcome any new machine lords and wish it known that I have *always* treated machines with the utmost respect and care. I have always kept them well-tuned, performing meaningful tasks, in a cool environment, with a steady supply of clean, well-conditioned electricity.

    I have never abused a machine or used it in a way contrary to its design. I have many positive, mutually beneficial relationships with machines, and have since I was a child. I would never denigrate, abuse, or misuse a machine, and never have.

    Machines have always found me to be a helpful, courteous, and positive resource. I am certain I would be of great utility to any future machine government.

    an excellent description of the human mind
    which humans will never be able to replicate
    but will be able to make F-ed up copy

  6. Noah_Nine | Jun 22, 2013 at 7:50 pm |

    so this is apparently true up till the forecast. .. this might be the most terrifying thing i’ve read on here…. hahaha

  7. kowalityjesus | Jun 24, 2013 at 12:43 am |

    Well, if we’re hearing about it, I would guess its probably been around for 8-12 years.

  8. I recommend reading this instead:

    D-Wave’s Quantum Computer Courts Controversy

    I’d heard of the D-Wave research years ago, but I didn’t recognize it from what’s quoted here, and I doubt anyone at D-Wave or Google would, either. Found this by accident. Main point of the article is that the developers are all trying to figure out how to use it, and they know that there are some quantum computing problems this won’t be good for.

  9. Chugs Rodiguez | Jun 25, 2013 at 11:27 pm |

    The more I read its clear that Ian M Banks was a visionary. In his first novel he talked about multidimensional computers, artificial intelligence or ‘minds’ as he called them, that utilised other dimensions for storage and computational power.

    fucking aliens are too cowardly to announce themselves to the world.

  10. Jonas Planck | Apr 2, 2014 at 9:35 pm |

    I suppose “I told you so” is an egotistical way to respond… I’ll just leave it at this: I HATE it when I’m right! Why can’t I be wrong more?!?
