mechanical work is not my thing. i get scared half the time, and almost sawed myself. I got some help from maxwell when I was saturing though. that was a good experience, and I learned how to confidently sautre. it was a new and somewhat enjoyable experience.

]]>In the classical model of a computer, the most fundamental building block, the bit, can only exist in one of two distinct states, a 0 or a 1. In a quantum computer the rules are changed. Not only can a ‘quantum bit’, usually referred to as a ‘qubit’, exist in the classical 0 and 1 states, it can also be in a coherent superposition of both. When a qubit is in this state it can be thought of as existing in two universes, as a 0 in one universe and as a 1 in the other. An operation on such a qubit effectively acts on both values at the same time. The significant point being that by performing the single operation on the qubit, we have performed the operation on two different values. Likewise, a two-qubit system would perform the operation on 4 values, and a three-qubit system on eight. Increasing the number of qubits therefore exponentially increases the ‘quantum parallelism’ we can obtain with the system. With the correct type of algorithm it is possible to use this parallelism to solve certain problems in a fraction of the time taken by a classical computer. This means that humanity can be able to have access something completely new, prove the reality in 11 instead of 4 (space-time) dimensions to our universe. 11D, pretty crazy. Quantum mechanics or quantum physics allows us to do this, the most advanced math and science their is.

I felt comfortable when I was presenting because I decided to not follow my script, and I engaged the audience more. I first asked if people know what AI is, and a lot of people didn’t know, so I decided to create more of a basic structure so that people can understand my project. If a lot of people knew what AI was, I would go into more of the techs parts, without explaining it in a basic manner. I asked the audience more Heston’s which made them feel included, and made me feel more comfortable. The structure of my presentation pleased me, and made me feel natural when I was presenting.

Overall, I was very happy with how I presented, and I look forward to these types of knowledgeable presentations in the future. Here is my performance of my capstone project:
