Quantum Computers Could Change Everything – Here's What You Should Know In Under 4 Minutes | Forbes

In the near future, there’s a good chance quantum computers will be a game changing technology for humanity. The industry is still in its early stages, with computer scientists around the world as well as technology giants such as IBM and Google working to develop them. So what exactly makes them different from our current computers and mobile devices? Jessica Pointing, a PhD student and researcher in quantum computing at Stanford University and Forbes 30 Under 30 alumni, explains the basics.

    Great Job Forbes.. Thanks for this Video 💯

  2. Nathan Enriquez on May 4, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Sounds like EVERYONE SHOULD OWN ONE!!! TERRIFYING!

  3. Nick Barrera on May 4, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Who manufacturers these tools/chemicals/parts?

  4. IKE on May 4, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Skynet online

  5. Stamatis Tsolelis on May 4, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Quantum pc’s will expand radiation?? The material of building these pc’s will be limited to Cpu only or all machine works that way??

  6. Sam Stone on May 4, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    In a perfect world maybe. Unfortunately we have a war machine that takes any and all new technology and weponize it. It will most likely help a one world order!

  7. Heaven 42# on May 4, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    How about all three together ?
    Now that’s a super computer
    No man can stand in that being

  8. Giuseppe D'Errico on May 4, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    quantum chip when it enters the market, they say it is lagging behind and how big its size and weight are.

  9. W K on May 4, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    yo, homegirl should run for office or something.

  10. Elias R. on May 4, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    The music in the middle bit is way to loud and distracting – the woman is amazingly eloquent though

  11. Self Help on May 4, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Can it solve the P vs NP problem?

  12. M Davis on May 4, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    She has great energy and does a great job at explaining. Not everyone who understands a concept can teach it well. She did a great job.

  13. Harper Martin on May 4, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Awesome video! Very helpful. Thank you. Always remember that Jesus Christ loves you all so much! Jesus Christ forgives all sins. Jesus Christ is God, Savior, and King!

  14. MuhAcnt on May 4, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    so when can this processors be used on my phone

  15. Shamic Entertainment on May 4, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    thats probably the best explanation i’ve ever heard about quantum computers

  16. Cza r on May 4, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    she’s so attractive intellectually.

  17. Jteach91 on May 4, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Forbes is so corrupt

  18. cay monkey on May 4, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    You IT idiots just don’t know it’s to your own demise. With quantum you break standard encryption. Which means big tech and the NSA/cia will have a backdoor is crypto. And all non quantum resistance technology.

  19. Alex Mars on May 4, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Even normal computers are beating grandmasters at chess. So imagine what quantum computers will do. They would be able to predict the lottery numbers, lol.

  20. The Watcher. on May 4, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Clearly she is a parrot!! She is regurgitating stuff she heard from other people….

  21. Angelo Sorte on May 4, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Truly a great explanation!

  22. Darren Judge on May 4, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    I still don’t know how it works.

  23. Livanz1 on May 4, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    I am sooooo happy that quantum hackers will soon be able to steal everybody’s money …

  24. Walter Brownstone on May 4, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Here’s what you should know about quantum computers: so far they are utterly useless.

  25. Basudev Paudel on May 4, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    ok

  26. Wirt Donners on May 4, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Такая увлечённая школьница рассказывает нам про квантовые вычисления как Грета Тунберг про глобальное потепление. Ну когда-нибудь их сделают конечно, но мир они с ног на голову не перевернут. Задачи у них слишком специфические.

  27. Nicholas Cheshire on May 4, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    How do you protect yourself from a quantum computer attack? Will it pretty much be able to break into anything.

  28. MegaBladerunner007 on May 4, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Great explanation and aesthetically pleasing as well ; )

  29. TONY STARK SUPREME KNIGHT on May 4, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Can it solve why is my life so poor?

  30. Breyon Wilson on May 4, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Quantum computers sound interesting. I guess you won’t need a gpu to game on one

  31. Nate Strings on May 4, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Yeah but can it play Minecraft?

  32. Sanguinor on May 4, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    These people out here talking about building quantum computers while I’m still trying to get an RTX 30 series card

  33. James Sheldon - formerly jimrutin on May 4, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Forbes may be full of BS on this. After all this is a commercial, so they are not going to say that Quantum Computing is hotly debated. There are physicists that believe superposition is a fantasy, and that is why they’re having so much trouble building a Quantum supercomputer even though they’re dumping untold amounts of money into it. It will be interesting to see where we are 10 years from now.

  34. Alex Z on May 4, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Donuts, I like donuts. lost me on superposition, but got me on donut 🤤

  35. wayne skynet on May 4, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    If you know u know.

  36. Harry WS on May 4, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Asus ROG Quantum, 1000 FPS

  37. En Verse on May 4, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    I bet she could activate The Prime Radiant on the first try. Excellent video.

  38. Misha Mereniuc on May 4, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Long Story short you are building Ultron.

  39. Mario Zambarov on May 4, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    What if in the future we could make whole ice planets to be quantum computers?

    Or what if Earth itself is a quantum computer? And we are the qubits.

  40. clockman cpu on May 4, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    once u find a way to encrypt from the quantum computer it ceases to be kool lol

  41. The Universe on May 4, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Easy explanation for easy understanding 😄

  42. Swee Seen on May 4, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    any of these got peer reviewed?

  43. Pythgorean's Assistant on May 4, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Wish we had a better explanation rather than "superposition". I still have many questions. For example, how does the logic work? Where do cubits come from? If our hardware isn’t powerful enough, does that mean all of this is theoretical?

  44. Leslie Soon on May 4, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Can game on a quantum computer without GPU? 😛

  45. sirus312 on May 4, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Ahh finally someone who can break down a complex scenario and make it very easy to understand

  46. Havoc on May 4, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Can it play games? if no it’s waste of time and money.

  47. CJ on May 4, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Everyone of these videos just re-explains what a quantum computer is.

  48. Hariyanto Goh on May 4, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    By photones which is basically light, or trapped iron which is basically atom. So basically i can see a quantum computer in myself. Now i have sense what a quantum computer is and how it works

  49. Raiding Stars on May 4, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    It’s not even a "computer" it’s more like a portal into a digital dimension. Kind of like The show Reboot. Idk why they won’t just tell it like it is

  50. Mr Walkers on May 4, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Goodbye crypto lol
