    Computing Limit – Computerphile

    It’s what I want to do is focus on the real fundamental physical limits of course getting down to the the miniaturization And the smallest possible structures is an important aspect But there’s also a speed aspect if you even get down to that you get your density up. How fast can you process? The reason I’m quite keen to come back to computerphile is I spent the first two years of my physics degree going shuddered on computer science and because I’m really quite a per mathematician to put it mildly, but I’m As a cold or at least back in the dim distant days of the past I…

    Research & High Performance Computing – Computerphile

    Traditionally where people have used compute in their their research They know what to do because they’ve they’re experts in the field and a lot of our classical users using HPC know exactly what they want they know how to process their data They know they need to use scientific Linux They can write software to process their data, and they can get their own research questions answered by themselves and you know part of information services job is simply just to provide the hardware in the grunt that they need to do that but Increasingly we’re finding that other people are wanting to use compute in their research But…

    Current State of Quantum Computing – Computerphile

    Well, brief mentions in other videos about the Q-word, *Laughs* you know, the magic computers that are going to break all encryption and beat everyone at their own game and be the next big thing and be on all our smartphones. Should we put some reality on this? Where are we at with quantum computing? I Work at a company called Righetti computing. We’re a company in Berkeley, California And we build quantum computers from the ground up. We do the silicon fabrication all the way up to how we program the machines I in particular Think a lot about how we program the machines how we interface with it…

    High Performance Computing (HPC) – Computerphile

    This this two-factor authentication; so basically to get in I need my card and then I need a PIN and this is a scrambler pad so basically every time that you look at that the numbers are in a different order. This is the High Performance Computing facility for the university of Nottingham. SEAN>>What do you use it for? All sorts of things it’s basically to do with the high compute research so for example students and researchers will use this for doing calculations based on things like fluid dynamics, aerospace, genomics… All sorts of things anything which requires – astronomy – that’s what anything that requires a large amount…

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

    Reporter:I was going to ask you to explainquantum computing, but… [crowd chuckles]Um, when do you expect Canada’s ISIL missionto begin again, and are we not doing anythingin 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.…

    How Quantum Computing Will Change The World!

    What the heck is quantum computing? And should I care? Hey guys, Crystal here with DNews, I dont know if you’ve noticed lately, but there is a new wave of computer technology being quietly developed in basement labs and secret company offices. I’m talking about “quantum computing”. Companies like Google, Microsoft and IBM, not to mention the U.S. government, have started investing heavily in the development of quantum computers in the last few years and news of their investments is slowly leaking out into mainstream media. So what is a quantum computer and why are all of the major powers that influence our lives interested in them? Well the short…

    Photonic Chips Will Change Computing Forever… If We Can Get Them Right

    The electrons shuffling around inside our computers move pretty fast, theoretically their top speed in silicon is up to 100,000 meters per second. Which is good because the faster they can move, the faster chips can do calculations, the faster I can refresh twitter. But there will always be something faster. Light. Why don’t we use photons in computers instead of electrons? We already use photons for communication; fiber optic cables are what keep the globe’s computers interconnected as they hurtle data around at light speed. But when it comes time to process that data, we convert light to electrons and run them through transistors. The conversion uses energy and…

    MCITP 70-640: Offline Domain Join

    In this video from IT Free Training I will look at offline domain join. Offline domain join allows you to join a computer to a domain without the need for the computer to contact a Domain Controller. This video shows a number of different ways offline domain join can be used to join computers to the domain. Offline domain join tends to suggest the network needs to be unavailable to be used, but some of the scenarios looked at can be used when the network is available, the end result is additional options for the network administrator when deploying new computers. In most cases you will have a Domain Controller…
