Okay so I have a theory that has two sub theories for implementation of quantum entanglement into computers. Currently computers are still operating more or less on the basic bit system that was developed decades ago to transfer data. There are variations on how this is done, but it’s mostly done with manipulations to electric currents. My theory is based on an article that Fallon recently shared with me about physicists that were actually able to demo quantum entanglement as a real thing. Most people go into, “OMG TELEPORTATION”, I’m thinking about something a little more practical, at least for my life timeline assuming the findings from the study are correct. I still have a lot more research to do, but I think I may have just finally found my passion for pursuing my masters and PhD.
I’m going to attempt to attach the notes I made on the plane as I was attempting to visualize how the Quantum Entanglement works, then how I imagine it to be applied to computing. I propose a series of questions at the bottom because this is so new and unknown. I’m not focusing on HOW quantum entanglement works, I’m focusing on HOW to leverage quantum entanglement. Similar to how the catapult and trebuchet were invented way before the mathematics to describe how they work was discovered.
Theory: Quantum Entanglement will allow instantaneous data transfer rates (Absolute 0ms/latency) between devices.
Sub Theory 1 (QE Bit Theory): Particles spin can be monitored by a computer daemon. Right = 1; Left = 0. This is a very basic theory on how to utilize the characteristic of a particle to define a 1 or 0 in computer binary. This is most closely related to how modern computers work today with electric manipulations that are codified into bits/bytes/etc. Example: Quadrature Amplitude Modulation
Sub-Theory 2 (QE Hex Theory): Inherit most of sub-theory 1’s premise. However, particles have more characteristics than just spin direction. Particles can have mass [Higgs Boson Practical Application?], spin, direction, speed, etc. The combination of these characteristics and a daemon monitoring these characteristics could theoretically provide far more data per particle than just a simple 1 or 0. For simplicity sake, I compare the difference between utilizing binary and going towards a hexadecimal implementation. Example: (SubTheory1)IPv4 -> (SubTheory2) IPv6
Draft Hypothesis: If particles can be entangled and manipulated at a quantum level then we would be able to put these particles in semiconductors to transfer data instantaneously because we would be able to manipulate and monitor the particles characteristics and codify a system that would translate to computable values similar to how electricity is used in modern computing today.
