By combining quantum computation and quantum interrogation, scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have found an exotic way of determining an answer to an algorithm â without ever running the algorithm.
That's great news. We all knew that if they managed to get a Quantum computer to work, almost all our problems would be solved.... including it seems saving anergy, as they don't even have to switch it on!
I always hated quantum physics at A-Level, you've just re-enforced that fact. (In case anyone cares I'm not a simpleton and achieved an A in physics, I just cant stand the idea of superposition and phase space).
Quantum mechanics is freaky. The more accurately you try to measure the position of a quantum particle, the more you displace its position, so you just sort of 'agree to disagree'. I love that bizarre irony. Continuing the supposition....the less you care about something the better your progress. I reckon that's possibly the key to the fairer sex and it explains why girls love blokes who are *********. See...I've just used quantum physics and getting off with chicks in the same discussion. Gulp....I must be a geek!
