In the video, Richard Murray discusses the potential for quantum computers to solve certain types of problems faster than traditional computers. He explains that while quantum computers are very accurate, they also introduce a lot of noise, which makes it difficult to correct for errors. The video explains that, in order to make quantum computers a reality, we will need to overcome several obstacles, including noise.

00:00:00 Richard Murray discusses how he got interested in quantum computing, how he got his PhD in quantum physics, and how he transitioned from being a scientist to an entrepreneur. He discusses his experience working with Oakley sunglasses, and how he helped them develop a new type of optical coating.
00:05:00 The video discusses the quantum threat to Bitcoin, and presents Orca, a company that builds quantum computers. The company has already sold two systems, and plans to open an exhibition in Bletchley Park, which is known for its work in cryptography.
00:10:00 Richard Murray discusses how quantum computers differ from traditional computers, and why businesses might want to invest in a quantum computer system. He also explains how d-wave Systems, one of the few quantum computing companies, sells systems costing upwards of $25 million.
00:15:00 In the video, Richard Murray discusses the potential threats posed by quantum computing to Bitcoin and other forms of encryption. He notes that while quantum computers are not yet able to break encryption as effectively as traditional computers, they are able to solve problems that are much more complex. Murray also discusses the implications of quantum mechanics on our understanding of the universe, concluding that while we still do not know everything about it, quantum computing is a key part of understanding it all.
00:20:00 Richard Murray discusses the quantum threat to Bitcoin, pointing out that two things that can be done at once can be done once quantumly. He also notes that when photons are hidden, they become a quantum thing, which allows for seemingly impossible computer operations.
00:25:00 In this video, Richard Murray discusses the quantum threat to Bitcoin, explaining that because photons can take multiple paths at the same time, it is not possible to observe the effects of quantum mechanics. Murray goes on to explain that this is why quantum computers are so powerful, as they can operate in a “quantum state” where the behavior of individual particles is not governed by classical mechanics.
00:30:00 In the video, Richard Murray discusses how quantum computers could fundamentally change how we think about computing. He explains that while a quantum computer retains the basic principles of traditional computers, it possesses many unique capabilities. He goes on to say that while quantum computers may eventually replace traditional computers, they will not necessarily be built using the same methods.
00:35:00 The video discusses how quantum computers could potentially solve certain problems much faster than traditional computers. It also discusses how companies are trying to capitalize on this by developing their own quantum computing hardware.
00:40:00 The video revisits the quantum threat to bitcoin, discussing the complexity of solving a problem from one to ten. It notes that while quantum computers may offer an advantage in certain areas, they still require a large amount of hardware and are far from being able to solve certain types of encryption.
00:45:00 The video discusses the potential for quantum computers to solve certain types of problems faster than traditional computers. It explains that while quantum computers are very accurate, they also introduce a lot of noise, which makes it difficult to correct for errors. The video explains that, in order to make quantum computers a reality, we will need to overcome several obstacles, including noise.
00:50:00 Richard Murray discusses the potential for quantum computers to improve drug discovery and treatment, and the challenges in trying to achieve this.
00:55:00 The video discusses the recent development of quantum computers that are capable of solving problems that are too difficult for traditional computers. It explains that while these computers are still in their early stages of development, they are a step in the right direction towards achieving quantum supremacy, which is the point where quantum computers can outperform traditional computers in certain areas.
01:00:00 – 01:20:00
In the video, Richard Murray discusses the potential for quantum computers to break encryption techniques used in Bitcoin. He also discusses the potential for other platforms to be vulnerable to a quantum attack. He believes that a quantum attack on Bitcoin is unlikely in the near future, but notes that risk-averse individuals should take steps to protect themselves.

01:00:00 The video discusses the potential dangers and risks posed by quantum computers, and argues that companies should be investing in research into quantum resistant encryption methods. It also points out that encrypted data can be vulnerable to being decrypted by quantum computers.
01:05:00 In the video, Richard Murray discusses the potential for quantum computers to break encryption techniques used in Bitcoin. He also discusses the potential for other platforms to be vulnerable to a quantum attack. He believes that a quantum attack on Bitcoin is unlikely in the near future, but notes that risk-averse individuals should take steps to protect themselves.
01:10:00 In this video, Richard Murray, a physicist and professor of philosophy, discusses recent findings in quantum physics that could explain consciousness. Murray argues that, as physicists are not well-equipped to deal with questions of consciousness, it is not their place to do so. He also notes that quantum businesses hate him for discussing these findings, as no one really understands how quantum physics works.
01:15:00 The author discusses quantum physics and the possible implications on human consciousness. He argues that quantum computers could lead to a world where we are all living in a simulation, and that we need to start learning to program quantum computers if we want to have any hope of retaining our trust in technology.
01:20:00 Richard Murray, a computer scientist and quantum physicist, discusses the potential threat posed to Bitcoin by quantum computers. Murray explains that while he doesn’t understand how quantum computers work, he is fascinated by their potential. He goes on to say that while many large companies have a quantum strategy, few executives are knowledgeable about quantum computing. Murray hopes that by spreading awareness of quantum computing, people will be more likely to invest in preparations for its eventual arrival.
