Will quantum computers kill Bitcoin?

Rumors of bitcoin’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. According to a site tracking “bitcoin obituaries,” the media has proclaimed the seven-year-old cryptocurrency dead more than 100 times, yet a recent resurgence has led to a tripling in bitcoin’s price over the last year. It has survived price crashes, cyber heists and community infighting, but bitcoin’s biggest threat may still be lying dormant: quantum computers.

Using Games to Further Quantum Computing

RUSSIA-GAMES-VIDEOS-SCIENCE-TECHNOLOGY

There is a battle raging between human and machine. Even though machine consciousness is still a long way away, computed algorithms are making choices that once needed human input. Recently Google’s AlphaGo algorithm beat a professional player in the game Go. An achievement that demonstrates the speed and development of machine capabilities. However, there is still much to do to make computers think like a human. Through games we can teach computers how to solve problems intuitively.

NOTE: The field of game science is a hot new field. For anyone interested in learning game theory and how to enter the field of game development, check out DaVinci Coders.
