A quantum computer isn’t just a more powerful version of the computers we use today; it’s something else entirely, based on emerging scientific understanding — and more than a bit of uncertainty.

Enter the quantum wonderland with TED Fellow Shohini Ghose and learn how this technology holds the potential to transform medicine, create unbreakable encryption and even teleport information.

Can’t get enough? Here’s another video.

Siraj Raval covers Google’s claim to have achieved Quantum Supremacy in a research paper that was briefly leaked on a NASA website.

The paper was taken down, but the Internet moves fast to recover data.

In this episode, Siraj explores what quantum supremacy means, what the applications of quantum computing will be, and how a quantum-resistant cryptographic technique called “A New Hope” works.
