Why is Quantum Mechanics Weird?

In her efforts to demystify quantum mechanics, YouTuber Sabine Hossenfelder, has done quite a few videos on the topic. In this video she explains exactly why quantum mechanics is weird. Is it entanglement or superpositions? Schrödinger’s cats? Not quite, really. But the famous Elitzur-Vaidman Bomb Experiment demonstrates well just why quantum mechanics is weird indeed. […]

How African Researchers Are Building a Quantum Community from the Ground Up

Here’s an interesting article from Qiskit on efforts to build a quantum computing community in Africa. “By 2050, the population of Africa will double,” said Barry Dwolatzky, emeritus professor of electrical and information engineering at the University of Witwatersrand (Wits University) in Johannesburg, South Africa. Current projections indicate that most of this growing population will […]

Time Crystals: a Breakthrough for Quantum Computing?

Google researchers claim to have created four-dimensional ‘time crystals. T Time crystals are a new phase of matter that seems to evade the laws of physics. Just like ordinary crystals repeat themselves in space, time crystals repeat themselves in time. Time crystals could become tools to detect magnetic fields or be used to diagnose what’s […]

Are Our Brains Quantum Computers?

I’ve often wondered if the consciousness we experience via a physical organ, the brain, has some connection to quantum mechanics. Searching on this term goes into some very odd places on the internet, but I think there may be something afoot going on at the sub-atomic level that science has not yet figured out. Here’s […]
