D Wave Computers are basically about the same as classical binary-system computers, performance wise. However, Quantum Computing is a force to be reckoned with, particularly if/when an A.I. were to take the steering wheel….
In this video, I tried to put together helpful info that clarifies how quantum computing works, and points out the fatal flaws in D-Wave Systems, which need gigantic freezers to even work at all. Let me know if I was unclear on any points–I’m happy to answer questions asked by polite folks who, like me, are seeking answers to what is happening around us.
