Top 3 Quantum Myths and Misconceptions

Quantum mechanics is hard. No one is debating that. But there are a lot of bad facts out there just because the metaphors used were not explained well. Let's debunk myths and explain some misconceptions. “QUANTUM COMPUTERS ARE USEFUL BECAUSE THEY CAN CHECK ALL POSSIBILITIES AT ONCE” No. That’s not how that works. Where did this explanation come from? More than fifty quantum algorithms have been discovered. Each quantum algorithm works differently, but ...

Quantum Machine Learning — Dr. Scott Aaronson’s “Read the Fine Print”

TL;DR — The task is to figure out how to look at problems in a way that would fit them into quantum algorithms for speedup. This does not mean that this is simple at all, or possible for all problems, due to caveats that will not give the full anticipated speedup. This is the “fine print” of quantum machine learning. Recently, Dr. Scott Aaronson, a professor at MIT, published an essay about quantum machine learning. ...
