Quantum computing and fusion power are always ten years away.

Did you not read the article? Quantum computing is happening today. The question now is how to move it beyond a lab setting and scale it up to a commercial product.

trying to integrate existing fab techniques should move it out faster

AM, Colossus, and Skynet all one step closer to reality.

So what happens when quantum computing does finally become practical?  Isn't it supposed to be able to break almost any current encryption?  Upon which all cryptocurrencies are based?

Which is about 10 years away.

/yup that was a joke.

Headline made me think of Zorro: The Gay Blade.

Unfortunately, I could not find the relevant clip. You'll just have to seek out the movie.

FTFA - "to develop, by 2022, a 10-qubit prototype silicon quantum integrated circuit"

D-Wave is already at 2000 qubits. And, have been doubling capacity roughly every two years. I realize they are talking on silicon vs whatever magic D-Wave uses, but D-Wave had a 16 qubit prototype working in 2007. These guys are a bit behind.

He didn't say ten years away in a particular direction.

D-wave needs huge, custom, cryogenic coolent systems, these chips could operate in your desktop computer.

Except that D-Waves machines have not been shown to actually be faster than classical computers.

(George Hamilton, playing both Don Diego de la Vega (Zorro), and his fabulous cousin, Bunny Wigglesworth, who is filling in for him while he recovers from a sprained ankle.)

Bunny, in gold lame Zorro costume:


"Two bits, four bits, six bits, a peso.
Everyone for Zorro, stand up and say so!"

FFS, change the wording to practical quantum computing. Lots of research and some questionable commercial products, such as the D Wave. Similar for fusion power. There are plenty of research reactors but there isn't even a prototype of a power generating one.

One of the reasons Fusion is so far away is because funding for it keeps being cut. Most of those predictions are made "With x level of funding, fusion should be available in y years."

*Funding is set at .1*x *

That's the scene. No clips online, though. :(

They are also more than 15 years ahead in r&d.

Don't fall for it. It's a scam.
