Call it Quantum and you get people to go “oooh!”. sigh
I read this. Interesting read. Looks very useful. COULD it be called Quantum annealing? Sure. But it could also be called, *”HEY LET’S USE 2 VARIABLES instead of 1 in the height dimension and make it shakey (quantum) so then we get…
THREEEEE DIMENSIONS OOOOOOooooOOOooOOOo
I hate BS wrapped up in spooky fundable terms like Quantum and Spin Glass (everybody loves Spin Glass now – all the rage; I like it too because it has… MEMORYYYY PROPERTIESSS…. just like USSSSSSssss”…. [ so do a lot of things that we humans have trouble writing the formulas to get math to predict … because _MATH is fundamentally one dimensional itself … ya-know… the *number line? – and we get all spooked over Pi because it’s circle drawn in TWO DIMENSIONSS…….. and doesn’t fit in 1 dimension and cracks the number line. duh . ]
Not knocking math or the research… just the spookiness factor of it. It’s still cool but JUST CALL IT RANDOMIZED at key points instead of quantum and skip the BS.
