Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau schools reporter on quantum computing during press conference


Reporter:I was going
to ask you to explain
quantum computing, but…
[crowd chuckles]Um, when do you expect
Canada’s ISIL mission
to begin again,
and are we not doing anything
in the interim
while we prepare?
Okay, very simply:
normal computers work by… [crowd laughs, applauds] No no no,
don’t interrupt me. when you walk out of here,
you will know more– well no, some of you
will know far less about quantum computing,
but most of you. Normal computers work,
either there’s power going through a wire or not:
it’s one or a zero. They’re binary systems. What quantum states
allow for is much more complex
information to be encoded into a single bit. Regular computer bit is
either a one or a zero: on or off; a quantum state
can be much more complex than that because, as we know,
things can be both particle and wave
at the same time, and the uncertainty around
quantum states allows us to encode more information into
a much smaller computer. So that’s what’s exciting
about quantum computing and that’s where
we’re going. [crowd roars with applause] Don’t get me going on this,
or we’ll be here all day. Trust me.
[crowd laughs]

    People who know Quantum Computing know that Soy Boy here knows nothing about it. What he said about Binary Computing, we Americans learn that in grade school. Don't you in Canada?

  • Robert MacDonald

    He’s putting Canada into a huge deficit and needs to go. Canadians need to stop obsessing over American politics and take a hard look

  • Utkarsh Anand

    We could have built trinary or quarternary CPUs as well, without even looking at quantum computing. The thing is, it wasn’t economically as viable. It wasn’t efficient enough. He’s simply trying to act like he knows stuff. The last time I checked, quantum computers were still slower than regular ones. It only required lesser number of steps to produce a result.

  • Joseph King

    schools reporter, He didnt school anybody, wtf. Stating that we could place more data on or through is not complex at all

  • Mike n Ikes

    So to sum up what he just said minus the rambling and trying to use big words: Normal computers have 2 states, quantum computers have multiple states.

    His ignorance and arrogance are painful to watch.

    Attention all members of the conservative party of Canada: You don't even want to know how sad and how let down I am feeling right now.
    I lost a person who was so valuble nothing and no one in the entire world could ever replace her. She meant everything to me and the reason she is no longer here with me is directly related to something one of your party members did. It was
    one of your MP's decisions to cancel safe injection places to save a few thousand extra dollars back in 2014. You don't even want to know how many deaths have been directly attributed to that same decision. Angry isn't the word, I'm furious right now! I feel like ringing each and every last one of your throats for real. I Just want you to know that I would never ever vote for you people again as long as I live. I'd rather vote for that doe-head Justin a thousand times over than vote for any of you people. I don't feel in my heart you should ever be allowed official party status for that critical mistake you made that cost so many people their lives.

    That wasn’t complicated…at all. Projection of greatness on to a moral coward and average intellect ideologue with huge confidence is dangerous. If he gets a 2nd term, Canada is going 1970’s UK.

  • Josh&Sarah Herrell

    PLEASE HELP CANADA WE NEED HIM OUT. IMPORTANT ISSUES ARE BEING IGNORED. AS A CITIZEN OF NEW BRUNSWICK I HAVE A QUESTION PM. WHY ARE YOU ALLOWED TO GO ON VACATION ON YOUR BIG JET AND WE GET TAXED AND HAVE TO PAY FOR YOU TO PARTY EVERYWHERE. YOU SHOULD BE PAYING THE CABON TAX WITH ALL THE VACATIONS YOU GO ON. YOU HAVE BEEN MORE OUT OF OUR COUNTRY THAN ANY OTHER PM. SO WHY DOES THE MIDDLE CLASS HAVE TO PAY FOR YOU? PAY IT YOURSELF AND STOP TAKING OUR MONEY!!! HOPEFULLY YOU GO TO JAIL SOON BECAUSE ELECTION TIME IS COMING UP AND WE WON'T STAND FOR THIS ANYMORE. www.jailtrudeau.com please sign and share.

    Fast forward 3 years and Trudeau isn't fooling anyone anymore. His stupidity and corruption are on full display.

  • Resident Reveler

    Does this fool really think what he gave was an intellectual answer? All he said was quantum computing is not just binary like normal computing. That's like saying computer does more than a calculator when asked what a computer is.

  • Keylup Veintisiete

    Don't get me going on this, it's all they made me memorize and not a single word has any kind of meaning to me

  • IZ Ewert

    I bet all those people praising Trudeau for not answering question (3 years ago) are little bit smarter by now. You have been taken for the fools! He is just a soyboy with no brains, pathological liar and a coward throwing his best friends under the bus to save his own skin in SNC scandal.

    Ite easy you subtract  243 ml of liquid ethanol into the gullet, mix in 122 ml of sweet types of fruitiness and multiply a little swaying balance and you have complete funny 4 year wasted budget trip. Jeeves get me to the planes mixologist, take off ey.

  • CHARLES JAMES

    He remembered his script. If he is elected again the Philippines will take over the country and bring a lot of garbage with them.

  • Phil Bob

    Pre placed question. You can tell cause he doesn’t stutter. Whenever he’s asked a question that’s not placed he can’t formulate a sentence

  • Thurgood Jenkins

    Will first he's going to say that the quantum computer has no gender and that the computer is going to be fighting against White supremacists all the while virtue signaling that the quantum computer will compute Reverse Racism and claim that young white males are threat

  • Jason Johnson

    That was a shameless setup. You can google it and see the transcripts of Trudeau actually requesting one of the reporters to ask him about quantum computing. He read up on it that morning, memorized a few facts (which he knew nothing about because he actually screwed them up). And tried to recite what he could remember for the cameras. This is epitome of phoneyness!!!

  • Madame Bovary

    What about our (previous) prime minister? He can't even write in Turkish, and he claims to be one of our leaders.

  • stop immigration

    Three years later, no one can stand the traitorous, brain dead, globalist. If brains were lard, he couldn't grease a skillet.

  • erepsekahs

    What a line-learning actor/fraud he is. As usual he said nothing. What Trudeau knows about quantum computing could be written on a space far smaller than his only brain cell.

  • darl rusian

    Well Trudeau we know how you compute and it isn't quantum… you would be the "zero" in a binary system which equates with the good things you have done for Canada thus far! "Normal computers work by power going through a wire or not. Its 1 or 0." Get yourself a battery and a piece of copper wire and you got yourself a normal computer hahahaha. I don't have to go any farther with this lol…..

  • Randall Joly

    What a complete and utter putz. How much was that reporter paid to lead in with that little nugget? Trudeau has no shame. Ask him the same question today and the script would be long forgotten and you'll get the 'drink box water bottle sort of thing'.

  • Brad Langton

    Trudeau couldn't read a scale to measure the length of his lying nose as it constantly keeps growing, right Truddoccio Crime Minister. YES, you are an utter failure in life and politics.

    "Don't get me going on this, or we will keep on this all day!" – justin trudeau! We are sure that this backpacking around the world dimwit who makes imbeciles look intelligent, has nothing more to say about quantum physics! This guy uses the words um and ah, more than a fourth grader! Let's face it! Who doesn't declare him to be the worst prime minister we have ever had in Canada? We know people that voted him because he was young, son because he was handsome and some who voted for him because he simply had nice hair!? Let's hope that these moronic voters are not Canada's future! Can you imagine? The fortunate turn of events subsequently was many people who we talked to turning their back on this imbecile! 2019 vote will be critical as to whether we KO tremendously more in debt with this guy, who gives out millions of dollars worldwide freelee, while he puts us deeper and deeper in debt until the point we wonder if even our great-grandchildren will be able to turn things around! How horrendous is that obligation that he proposes to send to our children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren? We need to be fiscally responsible, but that is not what Justin understands in the slightest! He has stated that the budget will balance itself in 2019! Guess what ridiculously far from the truth! Either he is a moron or a liar, or even both! We say both!!!

    Trudope, go sit on top of a flagpole. Make Canada great again, fire 🔥 Groper October 2019 make the fool a bouncer thingy again.

  • Ramadog

    Oh my gawd hes like good looking , he knows about science and oh my gawd the deal breaker like …hes a FEMINIST!! Im in luuuurvve. Actually hes pretty much a left wing jock who tries to do anything to get his name on a womans polling card and im sorry for all my sisters but it works to an extent

  • Vince Child

    This is an absolute lie and one I'd expect CBC to fall for hook line and sinker. Trudeau asked the question. He set it up.

    Don't ask me about WACC (weighted average cost of capital) but ask me about anything else.

    Okay, I wasn't going to ask about WACC but I'd like to know about your ethical violations….

    Well since you asked me about WACC, let me tell you…

    Wait a sec, no one asked. But let me quote Wikipedia to you.

  • William Peddle

    I really wanted to get him going "on this"
    Even if it took all day, The generic understanding of the topic was also known to me as a Canadian. General knowledge.
    Even if it takes all day help me to understand. Oh wise one.
