Realizing Quantum Computation

In the last months and years, I have stumbled upon many papers about quantum computing and some of the I have also read, some of them were just to Noble-prizy for me. Some were about the topology of quantum computers, some were about specific algorithms like Shor’s algorithm, some were about having fun with quantum computing, and some about physics (like Landauers Irreversibility and Heat Generation in the Computing Process or Benett’s Logical Reversibility of Computation).… Read more » “Realizing Quantum Computation”


Software development is…

Software development is not language.
Software development is not patterns.
Software development is not IDE.
Software development is not UML.
Software development is not components.
Software development is not cloud.
Software development is not frameworks.
Software development is not agile.
Software development is not Jira.

Software development is more than simply applying tools & methodologies. Software development requires creativity, phantasy, understanding, empathy, tolerance,…


Privacy and Secrecy is not written in CAPITAL LETTERS everywhere

Privacy and #Secrecy is not written in CAPITAL LETTERS everywhere. It makes me think a bit (no, actually quite a bit) when an online bank transfer to an Austrian authority uses the social security number plus date of birth as payment reference. 😱

Yes sure it’s easy and simple for identification, but this payment reference now goes from my bank to the destination bank and with maybe some manual clearings in between.… Read more » “Privacy and Secrecy is not written in CAPITAL LETTERS everywhere”


Google’s quantum supremacy debunked?

“As explained by Science, to replicate the performance of Sycamore, the scientists first had to reconfigure the problem as a 3D mathematical array called a tensor network. This meant they could use the system’s GPUs to perform calculations in parallel.

The low level of accuracy of Sycamore’s computation gave the Chinese team additional room for manoeuvre.… Read more » “Google’s quantum supremacy debunked?”
