( A three-minute read)

While we are all preoccupied with artificial intelligence the development of quantum chips is progressing in relevant silence.Résultat de recherche d'images pour "pictures of quantum computers"

IF SUCH A CHIP ARRIVES COMPUTER WILL BE ABLE TO PERFORM MORE CALCULATIONS SIMULTANEOUSLY THAN THERE ARE ATOMS IN THE KNOW UNIVERSE.

Get your head around that if you can.

CHEMICAL REACTIONS AND THE PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS ARE DETERMINED BY THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN ATOMS AND MOLECULES. THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE UNIVERSE AND ALL THAT IS IN IT – GOVERNED BY QUANTUM PHENOMENA.

So a quantum computer will require a fundamentally different way of thinking what programming is and you can rest assured that present-day machine learning will crack the coding required for such a computer sooner than later.

The first useful quantum machine might be years away but the quantum qubits are on the way to replace the microchip.

Already buried in all the Artificial Intelligence hip Google recently announced Bristlecone a new quantum computing chip with 72 quantum bits, or qubits as they like to be called.

If this is genuinely true we are going to leap into a new era with a google computer able to outgun all existing computers.

What does this mean?

THERE WILL BE NO WAY OF REALLY KNOWING IF A QUANTUM COMPUTER PRODUCES CORRECT ANSWERS.

EVEN IF THE FINANCIAL COSTS OF DEVELOPING SUCH A COMPUTER ARE TREMENDOUS A QUANTUM COMPUTER WILL BE MUCH MORE THAN ITS PROCESSOR CAPABILITIES.

THE TRANSFORMATIVE EFFECTS ON SOCIETY WILL BE UNIMAGINABLE.

IT WILL ARM GOOGLE WITH POWER OVER HOW OUR WORLD WORKS.

SUCH A POWER CANNOT BE LEFT IN THE HANDS OF A GLOBAL MONOPOLY CALLED GOOGLE.

WHY?

BECAUSE: WE ARE JUST WITNESSING THE APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND WHO IT IS SHAPING OUR PERSONALIZED WORLD OUR ABILITY TO EARN A LIVING OUR INCREASINGLY ENTAILMENT BETWEEN MACHINE DRIVEN INTELLIGENCE AND PEOPLE POWER AND ALL THE ETHICAL QUESTIONS SURROUNDING AI

BECAUSE: A WORLD THAT WAKES UP EVERY MORNING UNABLE TO IMAGINE WHAT CAN BE BETTER WILL BE A DULL PLACE.

BECAUSE: WE ARE SETTING OURSELVES UP TO BE OUTSHONE BY TECHNOLOGY.

BECAUSE: THE AI UNIVERSE IS ALREADY CHANNELING THE WAY OUR WORLD ORGANISATIONS OPERATE.

SO WHERE ARE WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?

THERE ARE NO GATEKEEPERS TO IDENTIFY THE EXPECTED SIDE EFFECTS OR UNINTENDED USES OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

WE NEED TO START AGGRESSIVELY TARGETING THE DOWNSIDES OF NEW ALGORITHMS AND TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE GOING TO PUSH HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OUT OF THE JOB MARKET AND CREATE AN INEQUALITY GAP SO BIG IN THE WORLD THAT THEY WILL IF LEFT TO SEEKING PROFIT WILL PUSH US ALL OVER THE BRINK.

WE CANNOT ALLOW SO MUCH POWER TO REST WITH ANYONE AUTHORITY OR MONOPOLY LIKE GOOGLE.

THE ONUS ON PROGRAMMERS IS TO BE TRANSPARENT. TO SHOW THE FULL PICTURE.

WE MUST ESTABLISH A TECHNOLOGICAL CLOUD BANK WHERE ALL PROGRAMMES ARE REQUIRED TO LODGE A COPY OF ANY PROGRAM WHETHER IT IS DEEMED BENEFICIAL OR NOT TO HUMANITY. ( See previous posts on the subject)

All human comments appreciated. All like clicks chucked in the bin.
