Quantum Computer: A new Era has begun

Classical computers can only take on one such state per gate; 0 or 1. A quantum computer is a processor whose functionality is aligned with quantum mechanics and can therefore take on quantum mechanical states. This is done via so-called qubits, which have more than one state at the same time and thus can solve mathematical problems much faster, or at all, if compared to classical computers.

Reality-Check: Bones – Fractal Bone Carved Malware Part 3

All of us know QR codes, those little funny looking boxes which, when scanned, lead us to a website or other information. I will not dive too deeply into their exact functionality. You will find black and white boxes in a QR Code, which are read as bits (white = 0, black = 1) by your QR Code reading app and show an address of a website or other information. What does this have to do with our murder victim?

Reality-Check: Bones – Fractal Bone Carved Malware Part 2

Welcome to your guided tour of a Fox Network TV series, anthropology, the human body, fractal geometry of nature, math, computer science, signal and image processing, and hardware maintenance while catching a killer! Let's start with the bones the killer used.

Reality-Check: Bones – Fractal Bone Carved Malware Part 1

Unusual topic for a futuristic blog, I know. So why a TV show? In a nutshell: Murderous computer genius engraves computer code as a fractal pattern on a bone of his victim. The "good guys" scan the bones and their computer blows up, preventing them from reconstructing and identifying the victim. Sounds perfectly legitimate to me too, I do this kind of thing all day long. Don't! So I decided to give you a rough reality check of these concepts, because in real life there are things like fractal encryption (yes, even outside the realm of USS-Enterprise-E against the Borgs).
