Graham Stoppani 03/01/21 "1. A laser based quantum computer has completed a calculation in 4 minutes. Doesn't sound much until you compare it to the time a traditional computer would have taken of 2.56 billion years."

I wonder how long it took to work out how long a traditional computer would take to do the calc' ?

Reminiscent of the old story of the Texan bragging to the Irishman how it takes him 3 days to ride a horse around his ranch. The Irishman replies "I had a horse like that once"

There is a huge difference between a simulation of intelligence and the real thing. Pubs are a good observational platform.

I did notice what looked like one of the robots lying on its back at the very end of the video.

They are certainly coming along though.
