Quantum computers and cryonics

Post by johnkclark » Thu Jan 20, 2022 5:24 am

Three different research groups reported in three separate articles in yesterday's issue of the journal Nature that they have achieved better than 99% accuracy in their quantum computers and they did it using the same type of silicon technology that conventional computer chips are made of. With accuracy this high it becomes feasible to use quantum error correction algorithms, and if you could do that then you can scale up small quantum computers indefinitely. I think this is extremely relevant for cryonics because it's clear to me that if patients frozen with today's technology are to be revived massive amounts of computing power will be needed. This is a news article about it:
