How much have computers changed in our lifetime? How have computers changed our lives? What will they be like 10, 20, or 50 years from now? Join our next Nerd Night at the Caldwell Collaborative to learn more about the future of computing. Two leading local experts, Jim Currey and Dr. Vladik Kreinovich will demystify the realms of super and quantum computing. Have you ever wondered just what goes on in the Cardwell Collaborative building? Nerd Night guests will also take a tour of this exciting new center of innovation.
Supercomputing means processing of massively complex problems using the concentrated resources of multiple computer systems working in parallel. With the system working at the maximum potential performance of any computer, Supercomputing enables problem solving and data analysis that would be simply impossible, too time-consuming or costly with standard computers.
Quantum computing is a new field of computer science based on the principles of quantum theory, which explains the nature and behavior of energy and matter. Development of a quantum computer, if practical, would mark a leap forward in computing capability far greater than that from the abacus to a modern day supercomputer.
