Yes, that’s the flaw with quantum computers. They generate SO MUCH HEAT (requiring all the cooling) because they’re trying to be so damned precise in their imprecision.
I mean it’s simple enough: You have FLIP, FLOP and Inbetween. I call it the /
FLIP/FLOP (or TRUE/FALSE)
Give the / a job. Bring it up and out of the 2 dimensional chipsets and make it do something.
It’ll be useful for making a profit for somebody smile emoticon
I like how they’re thinking, with regards to quantum computers. Faster processing of large amount of statistical data, faster 3D transformations, data cubes – it’ll be marvelous stuff.
I’m thinking of tinkering at the lowest levels though.
For example: The heat issue. To me, if you’re going, quite literally “up” a dimension, you gain another degree of FREEDOM.
With that degree of freedom, the system should get COOLER, not hotter.
Right now, chips generate lots of heat. Wasted. Wasted energy. All those potentials gone in the form of heat.
Why should it be making heat? It should have somewhere to go that’s useful for the system it’s a part of.
Oh indeed. I mean some of this is possible with parallel computing. It is a shame that the 5th generation computers project in Japan was shut down in the late 1980s, so we have been stuck with 4th generation computers all of this time.
Computers that can do ACTUAL Scalar operations were getting more and more powerful in the 1980s but it became cheaper to simply work on SPEED of successive computations.
So now, in 2015, we’ve going _back_ to where we left off in the 1980s, because we’re reaching the limit of what consecutive processing can do. Even parallel has its limits. Hierarchical has its limits. But it’s an improvement over “speed” in a single direction.
