Are computers honest? Will computers of the future be honest? What would make them dishonest? Could they become dishonest on their own volition?
What if there ever becomes so many highly complex computers that there aren't enough repairmen that understand how to fix them? Will computers of the future be able to communicate with each other? What if the robots start manufacturing duplicates of them selves? What if they don't tell humans the details of their constructions such that no human knows how to fix them? Etc., etc.\
What if AI becomes a big problem? Who's gonna fix it?

Computers don't have emotions or any concept of 'honesty'.

It's not worth fixing most computers. It's easier to simply replace them.

Computers today talk communicate with each other. You posted on this website. That is proof. Your home computer communicates with a variety of servers including the one running this site.

They already do. We program them that way.

itn,
Thanks for your reply. Keep in mind that those questions weren't meant to be taken literally necessarily.
And actually i haven't watched too many terminator movies. I did read too many Robert Heinlein books as a youth.

No points for stating the obvious itn.

No, computers and 'smart' phones are not 'honest'. They mine your personal data, and it's sold for marketing and research. Most electronics aren't usually worth repairing these days. Few things on them are, a switch, a screen, power supply... But, a main board, or module, between the part, the technicians wages, profit mark-up, you'll pay more than half the purchase price, or cost of a newer model. Circuit boards are packed too densely, with tiny components. To do a proper repair, you need to find the failed part, and replace it. But, you also need to find the reason the part failed, fix that. Sometimes, when on part fails, it damages other parts as well. Schematics, firmware, even unlabeled parts makes it near-impossible, without the manufacturer's blessing. They, of course, would prefer you just bought a replacement, or newest model. Not to mention, if they released the service info, China could make a cheaper clone...

Most manufacturing these days, are least partially automated. They are programmed to do very specific tasks, make small process adjustments. They can't re-tool themselves, and create new, and unique products.

Computers don't think, they follow instructions... An AI is a computer, and follows instruction, doesn't think.

Actually you have seen all the terminator, and star trek movies. So why lie.

IBdaMann claims that Gold is a molecule, and that the last ice age never happened because I was not there to see it. The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that IBdaMann is clearly not using enough LSD.

I've only seen the first terminator movie and i haven't seen all the star trek movies. Probably seen all the star trek tv.
It could be that ideas from Robert Heinlein and Asimov etc. were built upon and improved to create terminator and star trek.\

I'm not exactly sure where mental or computer activity becomes "thinking" but when computers become able to "think" is the point where humans should start to worry but by then it will be too late.

So you have immersed yourself in fiction and are a star trek expert, and now you are babbling about what reality actually exist of.

Computers in general meaning 100 percent of all machines run programs that were written by thinking people. Do you think that a computer can decide when to turn itself off? No it cannot, unless its programming tells it to. There is a rumor that Google has an aware program and a programmer was fired for spilling the beans, but this is one rumor of one system. Your rant that computers are close to thinking means that you do not comprehend even the most basic if than programming.

LOL I challenge you to provide one thought that any computer ever thought?

Wrong again. The if-then-else construct, sometimes called if-then, is a two-way selection structure common across many programming languages. Although the syntax varies from language to language, the basic structure looks like: [1] If (boolean condition) Then (consequent) Else (alternative) End If Discussion

Science provides a 'point-of-departure' for fiction writers. The writer takes liberties, to create an interesting story to entertain. Things that closely parallel what's possible, tend grab and hold the reader's imagination.

All computers are 100% reliant on humans to exist and operate. A thinking computer would first design its own power source so that it can be independent of humanity. Now this is theoretically possible and once this happens God is proven as a new life form has been created. Really you need to give up this psychological attack because it can only lead to your full ignorance being exposed to the World.

While it is true that humans are currently using neural net configurations in an attempt to simulate thought, these patterns are changed to 0/1's and as such do not operate as a mind would where the brain creates its own electricity from chemical reactions to fire electrical impulses across neurons.

A dog lost in the woods begins to hunt water and food. A computer left alone in the woods is a useless pile of plastic and metal.

Really kid, stick with element 115.

How long did it take you to grasp simple logic? I learned it working with electronics, before there were personal computers available to the masses. I was in high school, when we got teletype terminals and got to timeshare on a university mainframe over telephone.

So, how does a quantum computer had If/Then statements? How are the qubits manipulated to perform the task? I just haven't found anything about how qubit logic gates work. Everything seems to stop short of that little nugget. Qubits can have many states between 0 and 1. Great, but what logic can be done with that?

You might begin by reading on your own independent of me. That is if you can, that said you will have to first accept that quantum computing is real

https://www.scientificamerican.com/video/how-does-a-quantum-computer-work/

Imagine a lightbulb filament, hanging upside down, but it's the most complicated light you've ever seen. Instead of one slender twist of wire, it has organized silvery swarms of them, neatly braided around a core. They are arranged in layers that narrow as you move down. Golden plates separate the structure into sections.

The outer part of this vessel is called the chandelier. It's a supercharged refrigerator that uses a special liquified helium mix to cool the computer's quantum chip down to near absolute zero. That's the coldest temperature theoretically possible.

At such low temperatures, the tiny superconducting circuits in the chip take on their quantum properties. And it's those properties, as we'll soon see, that could be harnessed to perform computational tasks that would be practically impossible on a classical computer.

Traditional computer processors work in binary—the billions of transistors that handle information on your laptop or smartphone are either on (1) or they're off (0). Using a series of circuits, called "gates," computers perform logical operations based on the state of those switches.

Classical computers are designed to follow specific inflexible rules. This makes them extremely reliable, but it also makes them ill-suited for solving certain kinds of problems—in particular, problems where you're trying to find a needle in a haystack.

This is where quantum computers shine.

If you think of a computer solving a problem as a mouse running through a maze, a classical computer finds its way through by trying every path until it reaches the end.

What if, instead of solving the maze through trial and error, you could consider all possible routes simultaneously?

Quantum computers do this by substituting the binary "bits" of classical computing with something called "qubits." Qubits operate according to the mysterious laws of quantum mechanics: the theory that physics works differently at the atomic and subatomic scale.

The classic way to demonstrate quantum mechanics is by shining a light through a barrier with two slits. Some light goes through the top slit, some the bottom, and the light waves knock into each other to create an interference pattern.

But now dim the light until you're firing individual photons one by one—elementary particles that comprise light. Logically, each photon has to travel through a single slit, and they've got nothing to interfere with. But somehow, you still end up with an interference pattern.

Here's what happens according to quantum mechanics: Until you detect them on the screen, each photon exists in a state called "superposition." It's as though it's traveling all possible paths at once. That is, until the superposition state "collapses" under observation to reveal a single point on the screen.

Qubits use this ability to do very efficient calculations.

For the maze example, the superposition state would contain all the possible routes. And then you'd have to collapse the state of superposition to reveal the likeliest path to the cheese.

Just like you add more transistors to extend the capabilities of your classical computer, you add more qubits to create a more powerful quantum computer.

Thanks to a quantum mechanical property called "entanglement," scientists can push multiple qubits into the same state, even if the qubits aren't in contact with each other. And while individual qubits exist in a superposition of two states, this increases exponentially as you entangle more qubits with each other. So a two-qubit system stores 4 possible values, a 20-qubit system more than a million.

So what does that mean for computing power? It helps to think about applying quantum computing to a real world problem: the one of prime numbers.

A prime number is a natural number greater than 1 that can only be divided evenly by itself or 1.

While it's easy to multiply small numbers into giant ones, it's much harder to go the reverse direction; you can't just look at a number and tell its factors. This is the basis for one of the most popular forms of data encryption, called RSA.

You can only decrypt RSA security by factoring the product of two prime numbers. Each prime factor is typically hundreds of digits long, and they serve as unique keys to a problem that's effectively unsolvable without knowing the answers in advance.

In 1995, M.I.T. mathematician Peter Shor, then at AT&T Bell Laboratories, devised a novel algorithm for factoring prime numbers whatever the size. One day, a quantum computer could use its computational power, and Shor's algorithm, to hack everything from your bank records to your personal files.

In 2001, IBM made a quantum computer with seven qubits to demonstrate Shor's algorithm. For qubits, they used atomic nuclei, which have two different spin states that can be controlled through radio frequency pulses.

This wasn't a great way to make a quantum computer, because it's very hard to scale up. But it did manage to run Shor's algorithm and factor 15 into 3 and 5. Hardly an impressive calculation, but still a major achievement in simply proving the algorithm works in practice.

Even now, experts are still trying to get quantum computers to work well enough to best classical supercomputers.

That remains extremely challenging, mostly because quantum states are fragile. It's hard to completely stop qubits from interacting with their outside environment, even with precise lasers in supercooled or vacuum chambers.

Any noise in the system leads to a state called "decoherence," where superposition breaks down and the computer loses information.

A small amount of error is natural in quantum computing, because we're dealing in probabilities rather than the strict rules of binary. But decoherence often introduces so much noise that it obscures the result.

When one qubit goes into a state of decoherence, the entanglement that enables the entire system breaks down.

So how do you fix this? The answer is called error correction--and it can happen in a few ways.

Error Correction #1: A fully error-corrected quantum computer could handle common errors like "bit flips," where a qubit suddenly changes to the wrong state.

To do this you would need to build a quantum computer with a few so-called "logical" qubits that actually do the math, and a bunch of standard qubits that correct for errors.

It would take a lot of error-correcting qubits—maybe 100 or so per logical qubit--to make the system work. But the end result would be an extremely reliable and generally useful quantum computer.

Error Correction #2: Other experts are trying to find clever ways to see through the noise generated by different errors. They are trying to build what they call "Noisy intermediate-scale quantum computers" using another set of algorithms.

That may work in some cases, but probably not across the board.

Error Correction #3: Another tactic is to find a new qubit source that isn't as susceptible to noise, such as "topological particles" that are better at retaining information. But some of these exotic particles (or quasi-particles) are purely hypothetical, so this technology could be years or decades off.

Because of these difficulties, quantum computing has advanced slowly, though there have been some significant achievements.

In 2019, Google used a 54-qubit quantum computer named "Sycamore" to do an incredibly complex (if useless) simulation in under 4 minutes—running a quantum random number generator a million times to sample the likelihood of different results.

Sycamore works very differently from the quantum computer that IBM built to demonstrate Shor's algorithm. Sycamore takes superconducting circuits and cools them to such low temperatures that the electrical current starts to behave like a quantum mechanical system. At present, this is one of the leading methods for building a quantum computer, alongside trapping ions in electric fields, where different energy levels similarly represent different qubit states.

Sycamore was a major breakthrough, though many engineers disagree exactly how major. Google said it was the first demonstration of so-called quantum advantage: achieving a task that would have been impossible for a classical computer.

It said the world's best supercomputer would have needed 10,000 years to do the same task. IBM has disputed that claim.

At least for now, serious quantum computers are a ways off. But with billions of dollars of investment from governments and the world's biggest companies, the race for quantum computing capabilities is well underway. The real question is: how will quantum computing change what a "computer" actually means to us. How will it change how our electronically connected world works? And when?

So, basically you don't comprehend the question, so copy & pasted the first thing that seemed relevant, even though you don't understand it either. The article explains how to change the qubit's state, but not how to perform logic, or any computational 'magic'. Doesn't even mention If/Then...

Mostly like the article you quoted, it's all marketing hype. The promote all the amazing things that could be done, once some pretty major obstacles are resolved. Basically, lots of money needed for further research an development. The major flaw in the design, being isolation is not an option. Everything in, and around the qubits, also contain sub-atomic particles, subjected to the same conditions that switch qubit states. Some of which will influence the qubits used in the computations.

All computers require humans to program and operate the machine, when stuff seems to happen automatically this is not happening as the computer is just following its programming.

Since there is no such thing as a 'quantum computer', there is no such thing as an if/elseif/else construct in it. Simple 'if' constructs are available in the machine language of processors. Anything else is a concept supported by a programming language (typically a procedure oriented language such as C, Python, Java, or ECMA), not the computer itself.

Object oriented languages such as LISP (including Guile and other variants), smalltalk, Turtle, and Tutor also include more complex if/elseif/else constructs.

You might begin by reading on your own independent of me. That is if you can, that said you will have to first accept that quantum computing is real

https://www.scientificamerican.com/video/how-does-a-quantum-computer-work/

Imagine a lightbulb filament, hanging upside down, but it's the most complicated light you've ever seen. Instead of one slender twist of wire, it has organized silvery swarms of them, neatly braided around a core. They are arranged in layers that narrow as you move down. Golden plates separate the structure into sections.

The outer part of this vessel is called the chandelier. It's a supercharged refrigerator that uses a special liquified helium mix to cool the computer's quantum chip down to near absolute zero. That's the coldest temperature theoretically possible.

At such low temperatures, the tiny superconducting circuits in the chip take on their quantum properties. And it's those properties, as we'll soon see, that could be harnessed to perform computational tasks that would be practically impossible on a classical computer.

Traditional computer processors work in binary—the billions of transistors that handle information on your laptop or smartphone are either on (1) or they're off (0). Using a series of circuits, called "gates," computers perform logical operations based on the state of those switches.

Classical computers are designed to follow specific inflexible rules. This makes them extremely reliable, but it also makes them ill-suited for solving certain kinds of problems—in particular, problems where you're trying to find a needle in a haystack.

This is where quantum computers shine.

If you think of a computer solving a problem as a mouse running through a maze, a classical computer finds its way through by trying every path until it reaches the end.

What if, instead of solving the maze through trial and error, you could consider all possible routes simultaneously?

Quantum computers do this by substituting the binary "bits" of classical computing with something called "qubits." Qubits operate according to the mysterious laws of quantum mechanics: the theory that physics works differently at the atomic and subatomic scale.

The classic way to demonstrate quantum mechanics is by shining a light through a barrier with two slits. Some light goes through the top slit, some the bottom, and the light waves knock into each other to create an interference pattern.

But now dim the light until you're firing individual photons one by one—elementary particles that comprise light. Logically, each photon has to travel through a single slit, and they've got nothing to interfere with. But somehow, you still end up with an interference pattern.

Here's what happens according to quantum mechanics: Until you detect them on the screen, each photon exists in a state called "superposition." It's as though it's traveling all possible paths at once. That is, until the superposition state "collapses" under observation to reveal a single point on the screen.

Qubits use this ability to do very efficient calculations.

For the maze example, the superposition state would contain all the possible routes. And then you'd have to collapse the state of superposition to reveal the likeliest path to the cheese.

Just like you add more transistors to extend the capabilities of your classical computer, you add more qubits to create a more powerful quantum computer.

Thanks to a quantum mechanical property called "entanglement," scientists can push multiple qubits into the same state, even if the qubits aren't in contact with each other. And while individual qubits exist in a superposition of two states, this increases exponentially as you entangle more qubits with each other. So a two-qubit system stores 4 possible values, a 20-qubit system more than a million.

So what does that mean for computing power? It helps to think about applying quantum computing to a real world problem: the one of prime numbers.

A prime number is a natural number greater than 1 that can only be divided evenly by itself or 1.

While it's easy to multiply small numbers into giant ones, it's much harder to go the reverse direction; you can't just look at a number and tell its factors. This is the basis for one of the most popular forms of data encryption, called RSA.

Regarding free will, what process can I have my children follow to study it?


Free will is an illusion, like your intellectual quotient.


IBdaMann claims that Gold is a molecule, and that the last ice age never happened because I was not there to see it. The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that IBdaMann is clearly not using enough LSD.

According to CDC/Government info, people who were vaccinated are now DYING at a higher rate than non-vaccinated people, which exposes the covid vaccines as the poison that they are, this is now fully confirmed by the terrorist CDC
