+ lots of smart meters, ect. I imagine.
I don't see any surprising or useful technical implication. Do you?
While I personally support this kind of research,
The author is presumably an academic or industry professional (based on the formatting). As such, he knew what he was doing was illegal and had a significantly detrimental effect on low-resource systems. Furthermore, he can't blame a conviction on over-zealous prosecution or recent anti-hacker sentiment because he's obviously emulating Robert Morris (who received three years jail time for the Morris worm - convicted in 1990).
I also question how useful his scientific contribution is. While arguably more complete than other sources of data, there are a multitude of other projects offering data of similar(if not better) accuracy.
I'm pretty sure I've seen this one before...
"Doi had been researching various methods of preserving bone mass in zero gravity conditions, leading to healthy but frequently unappetizing food... when it is found that Noguchi and another crew member have space radiation exposure and abnormally increased bone volume during a periodic medical check-up, Doi strangely questions the safety of his food, hinting that there may be more going on that is apparent...Orudo and the crew member have transformed into homicidal monsters, successfully killing most of crew members and ISS Police units."
This is where I went with the article; it's very unlikely to have anything to do with Einstein's concept of the speed of light, as math indicates that tachyons behave completely differently. I'm not actually sure that measurements of c(or m if you want to be pedantic) are based on light travelling through a vacuum though. I can't find any decent information on the subject, but I suspect that certain unrelated EM properties would make for more accurate measurements.
I would have thought being homeless was a pretty darn good evasion method.
I suppose it's more of a living with a friend and not paying rent kinda thing. Article gives no further information that I can see.
Quantum computing has been a hot research topic for 3 decades now. Do you really think no one considered "Conventional electrical circuits" before moving on to the elaborate qubit registers that current mainstream models use? Issues included error rate and scalability.
There's nothing new about this model except that they're trying to make it programmable. Quantum computers don't need to be programmable; they're best suited for solving a small set of specific problems.
Proving once again that stuff gets named after the guy with the cool name.
As there are an infinite number of superpositions of the 0 and 1 state, a -1 wouldn't actually matter.
Everything I know about quantum computing leads me to believe this is a silly exercise.
- There's no benefit to having memory on the same chip as it's easier and more reliable to frame the problem and process the results with a non-quantum computer.
- Having anything that close to the qubits makes it that much harder to handle decoherence which remains an unsolved problem on large scales.
- "Conventional electrical circuits" aren't going to scale and if your quantum computing model can't scale, it's trash.
