  • Blueprint to Construct World’s First Massive Quantum Computer is Released
 

A scheme to construct the world’s first large-sized quantum computer is underway. It will bring something into existence which was just a plan on paper up until now.

A group of scientists from all over the world have revealed that the blueprint for the world’s first full-scale quantum computer has been made. This will probably be the fastest and most potent computer on the face of the planet.

The details concerning this plan were published in a scientific journal recently. Such a quantum computer would be a game changer on the scene.

It would radically alter the fields of industrial manufacturing, science and technology and trade and commerce so much so that they would be virtually unrecognizable to present-day denizens of this lonely planet. 

In fact this revolution would have the same impact as the beginning of the computer industry with the invention of the calculating machine by Charles Babbage.

A lot of effort would go into the manufacturing of this quantum computer which will take up quite some space. The computer will have the capacity to answer many questions posed by various fields of science.  

Novel medicinal agents will be made thanks to this supercomputer. Also the most difficult and intricate of question will get answered within milliseconds. The secrets of the stars that light up the night sky will be secrets no longer due to the answers provided by the magic machine.

What would take a run-of-the-mill computer eonss to solve will be standard fare for the novel invention. The device will work in the form of quantum bits.

Erstwhile scientists had proposed that fiber optics be used in the design of this computer. However, now they prefer electric fields to handle the connecting links and bonds in the inner stuff of the marvel of existence. 

The speed will be 100,000 faster than the normal computers you find today. Thus we are talking about a whole new ball game here. There were those who had predicted that constructing a huge quantum computer from scratch was impossible.

Yet while they were passing their pompous sarcasm, the inventors were already busy making the plans for this invention of artificial intelligence. It is actually based upon pragmatic engineering solutions.

Laser beams and silicon microchips will figure in the creation of this advanced machine. The blueprints for it show the sparkling and brilliant minds of today’s scientists who truly think outside the box.

This first ever blueprint to construct a large scale universal quantum computer got published on 1 February, 2017 in the influential journal Science Advances.
