Perhaps I should have uploaded this one to Bits & Bytes’ specific Tumblr account, but I’m still trying to keep a certain degree or order over there (I will post it when the time comes, I guess), so right now I’ll leave this here.
This is the english version of my farewell to Satoru Iwata. Nothing else to say, really.
In quantum computing, qubit or quantum bit, is a unit of quantum information—the quantum analogue of the classical bit.
A qubit is a two-state quantum-mechanical system such as the polarization of a single photon: here the two states are vertical polarization and horizontal polarization. In a classical system, a bit would have to be in one state or the other, but quantum mechanics allows the qubit to be in a superposition of both states at the same time, a property which is fundamental to quantum computing.
Did you know Castlevania celebrated its 30th Anniversary last September 26th? Maybe you missed it because Konami didn’t pay it much attention to begin with, and so Dracula is feeling a bit down. Cheer up, man.
