CascadiaPrime Cognition - The Quantum Computing Revolution

The drive for quantum computing is part of the great quest of our time to master the fundamental forces of the universe.

The emergence of broadly applied quantum computing will lead to profound shifts of economic and political power and will define the outcome of the existential questions of our time. It is hard to overestimate the importance of quantum computing and its related developments.

When I first heard that physicist Roger Penrose thought that the human brain had quantum properties I was extremely dubious. I am less sure now that the brain is without quantum properities in the functioning of at least some its "modules". A new science has arisen called quantum biology.


Quantum Computing

A team of researchers working on DARPA’s Optimization with Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices (ONISQ) program has created the first-ever quantum circuit with logical quantum bits (qubits), a key discovery that could accelerate fault-tolerant quantum computing and revolutionize concepts for designing quantum computer processors.
