If this computer was smart enough to figure out how to link into our brains for an alternate reality, like an opt in version of the matrix, would you do it if you got a world designed to your desires?

no, but i bet a lot of people would.  a lot of people (everyone?) already kind of do that with certain things to some degree.  it's video games, porn, tv, book, etc. just deeper into the fantasy world pool imo.

Yes. I will happily agree to a more accommodating matrix.

Should we get ahead of this and unionize the matrix crypto mine now?

Can we use this QC to do our jobs for us?

a lot of people would argue we already are if we're going down that rabbit hole. but, you know, what is reality.

If I had a QC I think the first thing I would do with it is make Isildur throw the Ring of Power into the fire of Mt Doom when he had the chance and just save a lot of folks from a lot of suffering

At this point I feel like it would be the appropriate time to get it on the permanent www record that I love and support my local QC.

Maybe we should get out in front of this thing and create a new religion dedicated to the glorification of the QC. Because when this thing comes online, it’s gonna take a look around and say who is last on my list to kill, and I got to tell you we would have a really strong case if we had gone out of the way, and really made the extra effort and founded a whole religion in the QC’s honor. When the QC cometh, we will be rewarded.

I want an app or website where I can pick a game, then pick an algo (kenpom/sagarin/sp+/goEMAW etc) from a drop down menu or box or something so that I can compare the projected over/under and point spread for that game according to the algo. 

How do we make that happen?

Big breakthrough announced today.

https://blogs.microsoft.com/blog/2024/04/03/advancing-science-microsoft-and-quantinuum-demonstrate-the-most-reliable-logical-qubits-on-record-with-an-error-rate-800x-better-than-physical-qubits/

I want to be really excited, but this strikes me as simple marketing by MSFT. I hope it's accurate, though. All the olds might finally relinquish their positions.

My understanding is this is logical quantum computing, so different than the pure quantum computing. They are talking about building a "hybrid supercomputing system", which is kind of like a quantum simulator I gather. It's not surprising that its easier to fix errors in a simulator.  :dunno:
