This is the AI minute brought to you by Gigaom, I’m Byron Reese. Quantum computing is not just coming, it's actually already here. There are quantum computers shipping right now just in very small numbers. Quantum Computing is a different system than the classical computing we're all used to.
We know that the computers we’re accustomed to have bits that can store either a 1 or a 0. Quantum computers on the other hand operate with qubits, which can be simultaneously a one and a 0 at the same time. Quantum computing is anything but intuitive.
There is a position that the human brain and our intelligence and even consciousness itself is a quantum process. If this is the case, then as we rocket towards a future of quantum computing we may find that that is our path to general intelligence and machine consciousness.
