Maybe I still can get my cheese eventually :-)

First of, always happy to hear that somebody enjoys my blog and thanks for noticing that I try to come up with my own material :-)

As to Mark Solomon, didn’t know about his work. He certainly was ahead of the curve in terms of the ever more popular ‘simulated universe’ meme.

Of course at this point we can be pretty sure it would have to be simulated by a quantum computer and hence, at this point, I don’t find the evidence for this idea very compelling.

The latter came in the form of the testing performed by Mathias Troyer et al.¬†While all of this is as expected in the field of journalism, I was a bit surprised to see that […]

This will remain constant, even with increasing chip size(i.e in its number of qubits). The average power consumption of the fastest ten supercomputers in the US is 4,100 kW, or about 265 times greater than D-Wave.

Bold and audacious, very much hope they’ll succeed. If they do asteroid mining will look far less pie in the sky.
