Google and NASA’s Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab


JASON: Who was it that said if
you think you understand quantum physics, you don’t
understand quantum physics? [MUSIC PLAYING] ERIC: Consciousness,
intelligence– JASON: Free will,
determinism– ERIC: Blackholes, protecting
the planet from asteroids– MASOUD: Heisenberg uncertainty
principle– ERIC: Atoms, ion traps, nuclear
magnetic resonance, superconductors, photons– HARTMUT: Artificial intelligence, machine learning– JASON: Past and future,
classical physics, time travel, the whole thing. I can tell it’s going to get
very hot as I start speaking. So tell me if I start to
look really shiny. [MUSIC PLAYING] JASON: Quantum physics puts
everything into question. ERIC: It defies every intuition
you have about the natural world. PETE: Quantum is a very strange
regime of physics. JASON: Things can exist in this
state of superposition, where they can be ghosting on
each other– where they could be this and that at
the same time. VADIM: Entanglement. ERIC: Quantum entanglement. SUZANNE: Two objects, if they’re
quantum mechanically entangled, are still strongly
related to each other, even though they can be a vast
distance apart. HARTMUT: There’s a notion
of the multi-verse. There’s a whole family of
Hartmuts in different states. And they’re going through
different experiences and different life trajectories. MASOUD: The famous one
is quantum tunneling. ERIC: Tunneling. PETE: Tunneling. Tunneling. GEORDIE: Tunneling is the
slippage between universes. ERIC: For a long time, people
thought those effects only existed in the microscopic
domain. HARTMUT: Like atoms,
electrons, photons. ELEANOR: But really, it’s the
theory of our universe. ERIC: So if you want to build
a quantum computer, you want to incorporate those new
phenomenon into information processing. JASON: Maybe quantum computation
is one of those instruments that’s going to
allow us to see quantum effects at the human scale. REPORTER: Google and NASA have
teamed up to share one of the world’s first commercial
quantum computers. This machine, made by Canada’s
D-Wave, will be installed in a NASA research center
in California. [MUSIC PLAYING] JEREMY: This is the inside
of one of our dilution refrigerators. All of this infrastructure is to
basically operate the chip at a temperature that’s two
orders of magnitude colder than interstellar space. The processor is a
quantum computer. REPORTER: –but uses things
called cubits. As well as being either one or
zero, a cubit can also be both at the same time, therefore
bringing about a quantum leap in terms of power. JASON: Harnessing principles of
reality that are, up until very recently, completely not
observable by us is just fascinating in ways that I can’t
completely articulate. GEORDIE; The overwhelmingly
obvious killer app for quantum computation is optimization. JEREMY: Optimization
problems are extremely difficult problems. HARTMUT: Actually, all Google
server centers together will not be capable of coming up
with the best solution to these optimization problems
as they get larger. So now, what is an optimization
problem? Here, I’ll give you
an example. You want to do a trip through
South America and you want to visit a number of cities. And then you ask, what is the
cheapest ticket I can get to visit, let’s say, 20 cities? And you can, of course,
different routes and different airlines. And imagine I list all the
different options I have from different routes to travel
to these cities. ERIC: We currently, as a
civilization, generate vast amounts of data. It could be climate data,
genomic data. But it’s very difficult to
generate useful insights, oftentimes, from that data. HARTMUT: If you can solve
optimization problems better, you have an important resource
at your hand. SERGIO: I think, at least, it
teaches us that we shouldn’t be naive about the world, that
we shouldn’t think about the world as a simple machine. It forces us to consider more
sophisticated notions of how the reality around us is
actually [? set. ?] ELEANOR: I can’t ask it
how long I’ll live or the meaning of life. Really, we don’t know what
the best questions are to ask that computer. That’s exactly what we’re trying
to understand now. PETE: To me, the most important question is, are we alone? And I have a feeling that
quantum computers, as they mature, are going to help
us answer that question. HARTMUT: This is, of
course, a more long-term research endeavor. And there are still tremendous
obstacles and big questions. Some of those will be addressed
in D-Wave, some will be addressed at NASA,
and some at Google. ELEANOR: I wasn’t sure I would
be able to experiment with a quantum computational device
in my lifetime. And now, I’m confident that
I will be able to. GEORDIE: How amazing it is
that we, with our monkey heritage and monkey brains and
monkeys fingers, have somehow lucked into a brain that allows
us to ask legitimate questions about the nature
of physical reality. That’s so cool. JASON: It’s that human risk to
go forth into that unknown frontier, whether it’s space
exploration or quantum exploration. We do it because we must. We do it because that’s what
it means to be human.

  1. quantum theory is like when we saw dreams after wakeing in morning we don't know from where we start…. is this happens with everyone then why we need to find the new universe when it already created in our mind..

  2. Quantum computer read a 1, 0 And 10 same time…This are calculating, save and handle the 1 country database

  3. propaganda advertisement with lots of all seeing eye symbolism by one of the devil's companies google.
    "its our purpose to build our skynet overlord who will shoot to superintelligence and make , us debt slaves something even better"
    whats that , some kinda mk ultra mind pledge vodoo.. go on google , bring us our doom n save us from this gloom.

    at least , you'd force the good side wake up too.

  5. Hi, so nice to see the title 'quantum' I have a question about it not related to the video but related to quantum physics. So, if every matter are made up of small particles and those are made up of atoms and electrons are moving around the nucleus in any matter. So if we take living and non living things so both the electrons are moving by these similarities we can make non living into living. I can further explain these how it can be done pls clear my doubt and reply me asking questions if u think it is correct then pls reply.

  6. I am a simple man, I see a video from years ago recommended currently, i come to see the blue shirt (because of the YouTube algorithm) squad down in the comments xD

  7. This video was made in 2013 and youtube was hiding it from me for 6 years and then recommends in 2019.

    Nice procrastination, YouTube.

  8. Sorry, ich kenne nur Arbeit ohne Flüssigsmitteln & Ohne Politikern & Wissenschaftler Gesichte
    Gedichte auch……Vorwürfen & Erwachsen Sportler mit Disziplinen…….

  9. Nobody: U don't know anything about quantum. Get away from this vedio.

    Me: I have watched Antman.
    Opened the vedio

  10. Some of this scientist surprise me when they still ask if we are alone, haven't they heard that the earth is flat?

  11. As much as I want to join the AI Lab, I think it's a little naive to think that building a functional quantum computer will mean you can ask it literally anything (like "Are we alone?") and just expect it to know that. It still has to operate largely based on information that it's given by humans, and then it does it's best to make a logical deduction from that.

  12. I don't think i understand quantum physics, which means….

    Step aside folks,
    a QUANTUM PHYSICIST is coming through😂😎

  13. why they are so dependent on quantom computers?? ?????????? its a man man so all info are also from human……………..

    #CONFUSED😅😅😅😅😅

  14. Can it run fortnite , pubg , gta 6 and rainbow seige 6 simultaneously while brute forcing through all the governments ?

  15. Quantum confusion, what is the purpose of this video, you taught me nothing here, a lot of double-talk

  16. Dis is proof day dere is life in space extra terrestrial being is real it's not science fiction n Hollywood we r not alone in dis universe may da force b wit u 😂

  17. NO, we are never alone, as we are all ONE. We are all energy and we are all interconnected! So the law of attraction brings us always the right masters into our existence ( our illusion) so we are able to surpass our masters! this is just happening in the NOW for the 2. Time in human existence.

  18. I don’t know why everybody thinks Quantum Physics is so difficult to understand. To me, this 4D reality we live in, I’ve always understood to be an emergent phenomenon of an underlying reality that we may never fully understand, so concepts like super-position and other spooky behavior make total sense (being outside of this emergent reality.) When I first heard about the quantum foam, this just reinforced the emergentness of this 4D space-time with its particles and fields that we live in. It is difficult for me to describe, but imagine how a universe of a single atom cannot conceive of the concept of temperature, (temperature being emergent, requiring more than one atom.) Take the above-mentioned concept of super-position in the underlying reality. Since that is the norm, then “stuff happens” in that reality, and our reality emerges from it, where this strange behavior of “information cannot travel faster than light” happens. This is super weird from the underlying realities standpoint, but completely normal for us. People need to stop assuming our laws of nature apply to the underlying reality. This is why people think Quantum mechanics is so strange. No it isn’t (and yes it is, at the same time. Get it?)

  19. Google parece la marca de un chicle? Es tan engomador todos los demás buscadores desaparecieron.

  20. Our intelligence is so quantum that we cannot understand what quantum computers can REALLY do in a quantum way 😉😉😉

  21. As many questions we have is exactly how many answers there are? We will always ask. The universe will always answer.
