Quantum Computing with Vijay Pande

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/VijayPandeQuantum.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Quantum computing is based on the system of quantum mechanics. In quantum computing, we perform operations over qubits instead of bits. A qubit is a vector, which can take on many more values than 0 or 1. The technology used to implement quantum computers is advancing such that it has its own Moore’s Law, but it can also leverage the classical advancements of

Computer Logic with Chris Dixon

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/ChrisDixon.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download The history of computing can be thought of as a series of ideas rather than objects. From Aristotle’s formalization of the syllogism, to Alan Turing’s model for an all-purpose computing machine, to Satoshi Nakamoto’s distributed transaction ledger–these breakthroughs did not come in the form of polished, tangible objects. In fact, the objects which end up changing computing fundamentally are often built from ideas

The End of Cloud Computing with Peter Levine

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/endofcloud_edited.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Cloud computing has pushed computation away from our own private servers and into virtual machines running on a data center. In the world of cloud computing, processing is centralized in these data centers, and our smartphone and laptop application performance suffers from having high latency between the client and the cloud server. As machine learning proliferates, the current model of cloud computing will
