Dr. Geordie Rose is the Founder and Chief Technical Officer of D-Wave Systems, a manufacturer of $20M quantum computing machines, which have been bought by major American research corporations, including Lockheed, NASA and the University of Southern California. The company is located in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
In this mind-boggling talk by Dr. Rose, he gives a thumbnail of how quantum computers work, saying that they will in a few years, outstrip human capabilities at *everything* – not at just math calculations – but everything.
Further, he refers to the Many World Hypothesis (MWI), which as far as he and his machines are concerned are not a hypothesis, at all and very real, with his machines’ capable of accessing parallel, almost mirror-worlds to our own, timelines with the same physical laws, where resources exist in those universes can be accessed when we may need them.
He doesn’t say exactly how this is achieved, here but the implications are endless…and at $20M, his quantum computers would seem to be a real steal – if these capabilities are real.
These are his three predictions:
1. By 2018, NASA will have found a planet with oceans of liquid water and an Earth-like atmosphere within 40 light years of Earth using a quantum computer and the serious discussions about traveling there will begin.
2. By 2023, a major breakthrough in physics will occur, based on a model whose cornerstone is the reality of parallel universes; an experiment will be performed on a quantum computer which will support the new theory.
3. By 2028, intelligent machines will exist that can do anything that humans can do; quantum computers will have played a critical role in the creation of this new type of intelligence.
