Quantum Computing

IBM Q is an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computing systems. As part of this effort, The IBM Quantum Experience enables anyone to connect to IBM’s quantum processor via the IBM Cloud, to run algorithms, experiments and to collaboratively explore what might be possible with quantum computing. Jerry Chow, manager of experimental quantum computing for IBM Research, describes the aim of this growing community working together to advance the frontiers of quantum

IBM Q systems will be designed to tackle problems in business and science that are too complex and exponential in nature for classical computing systems to handle. One of the first and most promising applications will be in the area of chemistry. Even for simple molecules like caffeine, the number of quantum states in the molecule can be astoundingly large — so large that all the conventional computing memory and processing power that could ever be built could not model it — and could lead to the discovery of new materials and medicines

Billions in Change

The world is facing some huge problems. There’s a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesn’t reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project

And here is his amazing speech!

Engineering Porn: Chapter 1

Yes, I love engineering! Ok, let me set it a little bit more clearly. I really really love engineering! In any kind or form of expression that it is available on this world! From aerospace and electronics, to automotive and civil.

No matter what it is the base of origin, no matter what problem is trying to solve during this period of time, no matter anything. It is an amazing entity by its own means! And this is more than enough for me! You don’t have to be a geek or a nerd or any other fancy (and fashionable these days) word that is rising to the surface. You just have to be a honest human being!

And if you don’t believe me look at the pictures! Non of those are from a single engineering project. Is a small collage from a variety of designs, concepts and hard work transformed into real object of desire. And despite that, every single one is capturing what I am trying to present here

The mathematics and science. The craftsmanship and precision. The many different raw material transformed and shaped in forms and figures that go against their normal nature. Every single centimetre is there because it has to be. Every single decision is taken after testing, prototyping and work around the clock. Everything for a solution to a problem. No matter if this oriented to pure science, medical or even day to day life.

And the end result? Well, look around you. Look on your screen of your smart phone and tablet or even outside the window. Take a walk and admire everything. From the cars that crossing the street, to the cup that holds your hot coffee in your hand, to the notification that just came to your phone, to the airplane that is crossing the sky, to everything…
If it is not nature then it is engineering. And the sad truth? The word that you admire and want to live in, is not made by fashion idols and TV personalities. Nor from politicians and poets! It is made from geeks and nerds around you that will become scientist, doctors and engineers! So, the next time you will cross one of them on the street say a thank you to them! You don’t know why… but maybe he will be the one that will cure cancer one day!
