Halloween Story: Beware the Super Boson Sampler, my son

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 2:28 am

Scary things seem to occur in the month of October, and even at the beginning of Nov, at least up to Nov. 8. Therefore, most years I write a special Halloween post for this blog to report on some of those things. This year, scary things have occurred in all areas of human endeavor (European and American politics, Syrian war, Zika, etc.). They have even occured in the area of quantum computing…One event of this kind that should be particularly vexing to all true Texan patriots is the imminent completion of the Super Boson Sampler.

The Super Boson Sampler, aka the Desertron, is a quantum computing TIME PORTAL device being built secretly by the NSA in Waxahachie Texas. The Director of the Desertron lab and original proponent of the device, Prof. Scott Aaronson of UT Austin, is being favorably compared to Robert Oppenheimer, director of the Los Alamos Laboratory during the Manhattan project.

Once it becomes operational before the end of this year, the Super Boson Sampler will be ten times more powerful than CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, another quantum computing time portal device, one that was designed as a precursor small scale toy model for the Super Boson Sampler.

Here is a picture, leaked to the press by a group that calls itself the Texan Freedom Fighters, of the Super Boson Sampler.

Rumor has it that the device is currently charging up, and that it will become fully operational one day after the American presidential election on Nov 8, probably with the intention of post-rigging the election in case things don’t work out for Hillary.

Here is one of many articles on the internet in which Prof. Aaronson explains his theory of time travel. According to that theory, the Super Boson Sampler will allow its users to travel backwards in time.

Quantum Aaronson Supremacy
is the belief held by some, including Aaronson himself, that the universe rotates around a fixed point called Computational Complexity Theory. Extended Quantum Aaronson Supremacy is the belief, also held by Aaronson, that that fixed point is Prof. Aaronson himself.

Recently Prof. Aaronson was flown to the White House, along with a large bunch of other highly placed quantum computing politicians, to give a very definitive FIVE MINUTE talk. I can see how that was a totally justifiable use of government resources. As Abraham Lincoln said: “Government of the rich elites, by the rich elites, for the rich elites, shall not perish from the Earth”.

Here is a small excerpt of his speech. We copy and pasted this excerpt from this blog post by Prof. Aaronson. Then our editor added the string ‘[Aaronson]’ in 2 places to facilitate comprehension by the reader. Prof. Aaronson is very confident that his ideas are golden. In fact, he is already comparing his achievements to the discovery of the Higgs Boson and the Fermi pile

If I have any policy advice, it’s this: recognize that a clear demonstration of quantum [Aaronson] supremacy is at least as big a deal as (say) the discovery of the Higgs boson. After this scientific milestone is achieved, I predict that the whole discussion of commercial applications of quantum computing will shift to a new plane, much like the Manhattan Project shifted to a new plane after Fermi built his pile under the Chicago stadium in 1942. In other words: at this point, the most “applied” thing to do might be to set applications aside temporarily, and just achieve this quantum [Aaronson] supremacy milestone—i.e., build the quantum computing Fermi pile—and thereby show the world that quantum computing speedups are a reality. Thank you.

Quantum Computing and Bayesian Networks for Global Monitoring of Pandemics

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 9:59 pm

Artiste-qb.net, the quantum computer software company that Henning Dekant and I co-founded recently, is very pleased to announce that we have started a collaboration with the Signa project, whose goal is to produce a universal platform for global monitoring of pandemics. Henning has written a beautiful blog post explaining the motivation behind the Signa Project. Signa is headed and is the brainchild of the multi-talented and visionary Andrew Deonarine, who will start postgraduate work at Harvard by the end of this month. Andrew has submitted a proposal to the MacArthur Foundation’s “$100M and Change” competition. If we don’t win EL Gordo, we will of course pursue other sources of funding. Andrew has prepared a YouTube video

of his vision, which will use as a starting point already existing software written by himself and many others, including our company, artiste-qb.net.

Here is a single frame from Andrew’s video showing the Signa Team so far.
