An intuitive approach from absolute scratch

So what is it?

Sit tight, and I’ll cover everything, I promise. The struggle you might have faced at first was that it appears to come out of nowhere, and seems to have no use. And most of whom that encounter it, accept its use case and move on, without truly asking why. This is the plug and chug approach.

I’ll be honest, not a fan of the ol’ plug…


A short essay furthering my bullish thesis on $CRM

Wrote this a couple of weeks ago and set it aside. I thought I’d share it now.

Salesforce ($CRM) — a cloud-based software giant — lost a staggering 25 billion dollars in market value following the announcement of their decision to acquire Slack ($WORK) — a workplace communication app. Given the sudden news, Salesforce is a magnet for bears all around. But why? The reason is simpler than you think; investors are perturbed that it will decimate the firm’s balance sheet. However, further prodding reveals the claims to be unsubstantial; Salesforce made a stellar decision in acquiring Slack. …

Phase kickback and Bernstein-Vaz algorithm

This one is technical. Feeling rusty on your quantum computing fundamentals? Don’t read it. Save it. Bookmark this article for later when you’ve brushed up. You’ll be glad you did, especially if you’re a beginner in QC and trying to understand phase kickback.

I’m thinking of a number in binary.

If you wanted to guess my number, it could take as many guesses as there are possibilities. If it was 101101, it would take you upwards of 64 tries (2⁶)!

Now, if you ask our everyday computers to guess that number, the number of tries needed to guess it would…


What are they, and why do they exist?

Now, comparing your computer to a quantum computer is a leap from fire to fluorescence. So let me tell you a not-so-secret secret. Your fire can simulate fluorescence. I’ll explain.

So what is it?

A quantum circuit simulator (QCS) allows quantum circuits, which use quantum…
