    St. Vincent “Severed Crossed Fingers” | Austin City Limits Web Exclusive

    – Well, well, well. (crowd cheering) What a wonderful way to come back to the home state. (crowd cheering) Yeah. We got friends here. We got family here. We got mama here. (crowd cheering) I couldn’t be happier. Couldn’t be happier to be here. So in the spirit of hometown-ness, I’m gonna play some songs that I used to play in coffee shops and bad bars and, on a couple of embarrassing occasions, pizza parlors. (crowd cheering) (laughing) We’re taking it back old school.

    Cloud Computing Explained

    ANNOUNCER: Computers and software are now a part of everyday life. We use email, set up websites, and some of us run our own businesses.

If you can do this easily, why can’t the government? The federal government has an extensive infrastructure, a broad user base in agencies with a variety of missions, and complex suites of applications. To address these challenges, the Federal CIO Council has charged the government to leverage cloud…

    Why Quantum Computing Requires Quantum Cryptography

    We’d like to thank Audible for supporting PBS. Quantum computing is cool, but you know what would be extra awesome – a quantum internet. In fact if we want the first we’ll need the latter.

And soon, perhaps very soon, we’ll be interacting with the weirdness of quantum mechanics even more directly – with the coming of quantum computing and the quantum internet. Today…

    Computing a Universe Simulation

    Physics seems to be telling us that it’s possible to simulate the entire universe on a computer– smaller than a universe If we go along with this crazy notion, how powerful would that computer need to be? And how long would it take? Believe it or not, we could figure it out. Look, I’m not saying the universe is a simulation I mean, it might be, I’m just not saying it. And, perhaps, it doesn’t make any difference. Even if this is the prime, the original physical universe rather than somewhere deep in the simulation nest We can still think of our universe’s underlying mechanics as computation. Imagine a universe,…
