Credete che la “digitalizzazione” sia solo una moda passeggera?

Vi ricordate che poco più di 10 anni fa non esistevano gli smartphone, i tablet e le Apps?

Usavamo telefonini Nokia, BlackBerry o Motorola: società’ ormai pressoché scomparse dal mercato. Cosi come e’ avvenuto alle videoteche Blockbuster con l’avvento dei film in digitale.

Il futuro sara’ sempre più “distruttivo” rispetto agli attuali stili di vita e di conseguenza cambieranno ancora di piu’ le professioni richieste dal mercato del lavoro, cioe’ cosa dovranno sapere fare i nostri figli.

Che piaccia o no, bisogna abituarsi all’idea, prepararsi a viverla e munirsi (soprattutto i ragazzi) delle competenze necessarie per saper gestire una societa’ in veloce cambiamento per esserne attori/promotori e non esserne travolti!

What Exactly Is Quantum Computing?

At the end of this reading and other ones I did on the same topic I ended up with my understanding of this new breakthrough Quantum Computing (QC) technology. As far as I understood, in very simple words quantum computer it is not at its best  boosting computing performances in any context like sequential operations or deterministic operations like just browsing the internet or streaming a video. For this purpose is more performing a deterministic “traditional” multi-processor computer.

QC delivers all its incredible performance when it comes to pull together many conditions, n-complex problems,  to be all verified at the same time to find the optimal solution, e.g. np complex problem , breaking any RSA security code or anayze genome code.

So quantum computing will slowly grow side by side with  the traditional computing to address specific problems that cannot be managed in the traditional way for lack of time/computational resources.

Not clear where this new technology could lead alike the “Theory of relativity“: its another opportunity, more powerful and comprehensive way to read and interact with Universe’s laws.

Quantum computers are nothing like the regular computers or even supercomputers. While the top supercomputers use extensive parallelism with numerous processing units to get its super speed, the Quantum computers work with the physics of quantum mechanics at its core.

How Does Quantum Computing Work?

[…]The quantum computers use atoms (quanta) as its physical system. Unlike in regular computing where the information is carried in either 0 or 1 bit, the quantum mechanics allows an atom to be in both 0 and 1 state simultaneously. This bit of data is called a qubit. ( Don’t hold your head just yet!)

bit-qubit

So, as per the theory, if there are equal number of qubits and the regular bits, then the qubits will hold twice the information, i.e. if there are n qubits in the supercomputer, then it will have 2^n different states.

[…]

As of today, many private players have entered into the competition to build a quantum computer, that would actually silence the critics. D-Wave has recently claimed to break the 1000 qubits barrier record. Other tech giants such as Google and IBM are advancing to develop their own quantum computers as well.

McKinsey: nel 2025 l’Internet of Things può valere l’11% dell’economia mondiale

McKinsey stima che da qui al 2025 il mercato globale dell’Internet of Things potrebbe valere dai 3.900 agli 11.100 miliardi di dollari all’anno. Nella migliore delle ipotesi, si parla dell’11% dell’intera economia mondiale. Ma per arrivare a questa migliore ipotesi occorre costruire contesti, tecnologie e modelli di business che, al di là dell’entusiasmo e delle aspettative con cui ora si guarda al fenomeno, lo trasformino in una solida realtà.

Does Hardware Even Matter Anymore? -from HBR

JUN15_09_185760494

We are in the midst of a technological revolution that is every bit as profound as the impact of cheap computing power, but it’s subtler and harder to notice. It will ease the way for companies launching and updating digital products, but it presents steep new learning curves that companies will have to master if they are to be successful.

The migration of functionality from hardware to software.

In more and more businesses, physical objects are no longer the primary basis for innovation and differentiation. They come second to innovations in computer code.

Managers are well aware that Moore’s Law, the idea that the number of transistors on a practical-sized chip doubles every 18 months, has brought us a bounty of cheap computing power, leading to smartphones, tablets, fitness trackers, cloud-based services like Facebook and Uber, and on and on.

The software revolution will be a powerful complement to the cheap-computing revolution, and the opportunities for unique and innovative products are boundless — it’s just a matter of programming.
