Do you use a CRT monitor?

I used to. i Had two CRT monitors, one was a 19' one for small stuff and the other is a 24' widescreen trinitron CRT, that i never got to working properly. The screen would drop like a water fall, maybe i got ripped off, or a capacitor needs changing. CRTs are nice if you have the space.

how come it seems like no progress has been made? we keep hearing about research but it seems like we never get to see any results. what gives?
what even is quantum computing anyway?

>superposition, or the ability to operate on many qubits at the same time instead of consecutively on bits as it is in computers
so what does that mean from a programming point of view? in what specific way does that effect the time complexity of an algorithm?

Imagine a rat trying to find a way out of a maze. The classical way, the rat has to go all the way down a path, and only after hitting a dead end can it then try checking another path. A quantum rat can go down every path simultaneously, solving the maze much faster

 No.5896

>>5893

>>5894 is a pretty good explanation tbh. it's also why right now google, ibm, et al. are measuring their successes in building a quantum computer by its quantum volume, a number that takes into account both amount of qubits and its effective error rate, because every qubit that is added and can operate relatively error free theoretically increases the capability to operate on data exponentially by allowing larger data structures. then all you need is an actual algorithm that can take advantage of this capability in a way that makes it more efficient than classical computers.

as >>5894 said pathfinding is one example of a problem that might benefit from this, so in complexity terms if we take A* (which worst case can get polynomial cost in bounded tree) and compare it to say a quantum binary tree search then, assuming there are enough qubits with a negligible error rate, you would get at least an exponential speed up.

pathfinding of course is fairly unique here because its memory bounded first and foremost, and every attempt at a quantum pathfinding algorithm i know of currently uses a qubit per pathing decision for example, so on large enough paths this really does exhaust capabilities of current quantum computers if you take into account that the "best" quantum computers (google, ibm) at the moment have around 50 qubits. ibm is "planning for a 1000 qubit computer by 2023" but right now this is just big words.

but to generalise it: if you are working on an algorithm that requires finding the correct state in a large state space, then quantum will in general offer (usually) an exponential kind of speed up there. and this is before we get to unique solutions that use entanglement like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shor%27s_algorithm

To clarify any of these devices can be used to find exploits to then hack any other similar device on the internet. Anything that connects to a network that is not your PC or Console.
