I'm curious to know at what rate qubits will develop in size. By that I mean how long it will take to get from a three qubit QC to a 250 one and beyond.

I believe there was another post recently showing that the progress of QCs is currently following the same trend as traditional computers (I.e.) Moore's law
All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.

Think about this:
Mankind has had digital technology since about 1943 which is only 69 years. Not even 70. Think about that, and then think that in 70 more years we will be starting to make some really amazing super computers.

Then think about this. It is possible for an alien race to have 3-5 billion years more experience with digital technology now than we have. How long ago did life start on Earth? Well about 3.8 billion years ago. Now wonder if we are in a simulation. The universe could be expanding into nothing because it hasn't "loaded yet".

I don't think we are in a simulation because why would someone keep a 3.8 billion year old computer around? Still, interesting to think about when your bored.

Mark your calendars

I think it simulation may be lot faster, you just press one button and it goes million years each second. By the time tentacled alien gets his coffe dinosaurs die and humans reach Moon.
