2.2.2 From many quits to a computer
As DiVincenzo’s five criteria state, many more building blocks are needed to be able to operate the qubits. Did you know that the water molecules in your glass of water form quantum states that can be used to define qubits? This means that when you drink you have billions of qubits in your hand!
However, a billion qubits alone does not make a quantum computer. In order to do something practical with these qubits, we need to be able to control and read them, and all these qubits need to work in harmony according to your input. In the second video, Menno will discuss the components needed to go from many qubits towards a quantum computer.
