What is Quantum Computing


Computers we use for everyday's work use transistors, and its computational power depends upon the no of transistors it contains. Gordon Moore noticed that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention. Moore's law predicts that this trend will continue occur in near future. But Moore's law is going to fail in near future as there is a limit the number of transistors we can fit in the given chip.

As the technology is growing, the thrust of increased processing power is snowballing and since Moore's law is going to fail in near future, we need alternate way to fulfill the hunger. If this trend continues to be followed then by 2040 we will not have the capability to power all of the machines around the globe. Thus the industry is focused on finding ways to make computing more energy efficient, but classical computers are limited by the minimum amount of energy it takes them to perform one operation. So to fulfill our requirement we need to reach to subatomic particles to find a way where operations can be done much more quickly using less energy than classical computers.

A bit is single piece of information that can only exist in two states: 1 or 0. Quantum computer uses quantum bits also known as 'qubits'. These quantum systems exist in two states. These can store much more information than just 1 or 0, as they values can exist in any superposition. If the qubit is in a superposition of the 1 state and the 0 state, and it performed a calculation with another qubit in the same superposition, then one calculation actually obtains 4 results: a 1/1 result, a 1/0 result, a 0/1 result, and a 0/0 result.

This is due to the result of mathematics applied on quantum system while in a state of de-coherence, which lasts when it is in superposition of states until it collapses down into one state. The exact physical mechanism at work within the quantum computer is somewhat theoretically complex and intuitively disturbing.

Thus Quantum Computers are next generation computers and are amazingly fast. Last year team of Google and NASA scientists found a D-wave quantum computer which is 100 million times faster than a conventional computer. But moving quantum computing to an industrial scale is difficult.

Chromecast: All you need to know

Digital media player, Chromecast is a small dongle developed by Google for accessing playbacks from mobile device or computers on high definition TVs. The device controls/initiate the playback of internet streamed audio and visual content on TVs through mobile or web Apps. The device supports Google cast for mirroring of content on HD TV's. Google Cast SDK is a third party modification software which was released on 3rd Feb, 2014. Third party Apps can use google cast for enabling their apps to be accessible through Chromecast on high definition Tvs. After the release, 20,000 google cast ready apps were sold till May 2015. 30 million units of Chromecast are sold till now in US making it the best seller streaming device in US in 2014. There are three Chromecast device launched till now: 1. Chromecast 1st Generation 2. Chromecast 2nd Generation 3. Chromecast 3rd Generation Chromecast 1st Generation It is the first Chromecast device announced on July 24,2013 a

How IoT will impact online gaming industry.

Internet of Things, also known as IoT, is a hot tech that is on everybody’s lips. It is a network of physical devices such as vehicles, home appliances and other electronic devices through internet connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. There are endless opportunities in IoT, when you start connecting things with things, humans with humans, or humans with things. Nowadays this hot tech has become an important part of our lives. Companies are earning huge amount of money by connecting devices and their revenue chart have skyrocketed. Gaming industry is one of the major industry which is impacted by IoT, and it’s most significant impact is on online gaming, whether they are consoles or online gambling. Impact of IoT on Casinos: One of the key area which has flourished over time is gambling industry. Online casinos have been effected by the growth of IoT. Playing poker or blackjack remotely without going to the casinos is of huge advantage as peop

Monitors and TV: Similarities and Differences

Monitors have faster response time than TVs and have higher refresh rates, lower input lag which make them better choice for gaming. Lot of us are confused whether, we should buy TV or monitor or can we interchange each other. We sometimes play games on HDTV or watch movies on computer monitor but that doesn't make them the same device. TVs have features not included in monitors, and monitors are generally smaller than TVs. However, TV and monitor have lot of similarities and have of dissimilarities. How They are Similar Following are the similarities in both Monitor and TV Screen Size When buying a new TV people prefer bigger screen size. However, screen resolution and panel type, play important role in image quality of device. As nowadays more content is in 4K hence while buying brand new TV nowadays, it should definitely support 4K. Overall, you can buy smaller 4K 43″ monitor or a 4K 50″-55″ TV by spending same amount of money. Screen Resolution TVs are availab
