Techniques and Technologies: SCI-FI or SCI-FACT?
I am not entertained by the “fear porn” about technology, however the people who use new tools and technologies for destructive purposes are a concern.
How AI is used is as important as how a knife is used.
Cracking encryptions and spyware to invade privacy is one such concern.
Technology appears to usually present both pros and cons to the community upon roll out.
Certainly this report about Quantum computers is keeping inline with that appearance.
The explanation in the report below seems nonsensical to me, however if researchers are getting results then the explanation can be wrong yet the results are significant. Remember that researchers and engineers do not define energy, electricity, nor gravity but rather describe their effects and use that as their basis for application, and decades or centuries pass without a definition ever being developed…

“When the NSA surveillance grid is turned over to AI, humanity is finished”
“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.
The ultimate code breakers
If you know anything about encryption, you probably also realize that quantum computers are the secret KEY to unlocking all encrypted files. As I wrote about last year here on Natural News, once quantum computers go into widespread use by the NSA, the CIA, Google, etc., there will be no more secrets kept from the government. All your files — even encrypted files — will be easily opened and read.
Until now, most people believed this day was far away. Quantum computing is an “impractical pipe dream,” we’ve been told”… – Read full report: http://www.naturalnews.com/040859_Skynet_quantum_computing_D-Wave_Systems.html
