If anyone has been wondering about what precisely a quantum computer is or what their anticipated capabilities will be, this short clip which was done three years ago is a good start. It is the best simple summary so far that I have been able to source. Quantum computing will eventually allow for Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). Quantum computers have already been termed the “hydrogen bomb of cyber warfare” if anyone thinks quantum computing isn’t going to be massively invested in and then exploited. Quantum computing alchemy you say? Well, D-Wave’s 16 Qubit microprocessor is made from the rare earth mineral niobium. Niobium is considered a “strategic metal” and 97% of it comes out of China.
