Scientists design machine to predict future

Presented with the fact that the future presents a myriad of possibilities whose numbers grow exponentially as more time elapses, researchers went on to create a device which can examine all possible futures by placing them in a quantum superposition.

A team of researchers from Australia’s Griffith University and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University recently developed a prototype quantum device that can generate all possible future outcomes in a set system.

According to the Griffith University’s official website, despite the fact that the future basically presents a vast number of possibilities which increase exponentially the deeper we go into it, the scientists realised that a quantum computer can examine all possible futures by placing them in a quantum superposition – “similar to Schrödinger’s famous cat that is simultaneously alive and dead”.

and it drives me nuts when they use it for one.

This realisation drove the team to create a specially devised photonic quantum information processor "in which the potential future outcomes of a decision process are represented by the locations of photons", demonstrating that the state of the device was a "superposition of multiple potential futures, weighted by their probability of occurrence".

Predicting where something will possibly be is not the who, what and when.  :yes:
