5 ways you use quantum technology every day

5 ways you use quantum technology every day

You might not know that you use quantum technologies every day pretty much constantly. Here I have summarised five of them, but there are many others. Quantum physics is often seen as a weird part of physics, far removed from our every day lives but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The entire modern world exists because of our understanding of quantum physics!

  2. Abderrahman Kherkhar on January 18, 2019 at 7:26 pm

    Make map of quantum physics!!

  3. Welile Fortune on January 18, 2019 at 7:26 pm

    Please make The Map of Engineering

    Computers are possible because of India
    And Aryabhata
    As we gave the concept of :- ‘ 0 ‘

  5. Ryan Harvey on January 18, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    Thank you for visualizing your thought processes. Extremely helpful in the instances where language fails or connotation interferes.

  6. Navid Haider on January 18, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    There’s also the idea that internet communication is happening across vast stretches of space between individuals who are being affected by things that they do on opposite ends of the world. That’s pretty er… "quantum" ?

  7. unfetteredphoenix on January 18, 2019 at 7:33 pm

    I’m listening, and impateintly, haven’t heard you speak about our brains….

  8. PAVAN PATIL on January 18, 2019 at 7:33 pm

    Wow …

  9. Kevin Delaney on January 18, 2019 at 7:33 pm

    WOW! I find quantum mechanics, in general, absolutely fascinating. I knew computers, CPU’s, GPU’s, RAM, SSD’s and things like that were a result of our understanding of quantum physics. (I have had a few very long, very in-depth conversations with an ex-hardware engineer for a rather large computer company, who kindly and rather thoroughly educated me on how some of these technologies functioned on a component and bit by bit level.)

    I did not know GPS, Cameras and especially MRI machines leveraged these properties.

    You must enjoy what you do. I have been trying to think of ways to get my young cousins interested in it because some of them are extremely interested in science and are around middle school to high school range and as automation and machine learning become more prevalent I suspect it is a wise long-term investment, when it comes to value, cost, time, etc.

    How do you get middle school and high schoolers interested in quantum mechanics? Hmmmm

    Great video brother exactly what i’ve been looking for I appreciate it thank you

  13. Puneet Singh on January 18, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    That is amazing……

  14. Hasan Iqbal on January 18, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    It would be great if you could explain how quantum properties are doing all these.

    Your presentation are always the best

    You forgot quantum torpedos.

    the map of dumbness

  20. X pl0rer on January 18, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    Could you use quantum entanglement to communicate with individuals who are very far away? A hundred lightyears away?
    Currently our fastest way to transmit information is only as fast as the speed of light… But if we could use quantum entanglement to transmit information we could communicate instantly even over a very very very long distance!!!

    Do you think this could be possible?

  21. Mr_FJ on January 18, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    I really wish USB sticks were called "Quantum Data Drives"

  22. Putu Widyasena on January 18, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    surprisingly, all of these technologies do exists in your smartphone.

  23. p dsds on January 18, 2019 at 7:50 pm

  24. Luiz Henrique Morais on January 18, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    Oh yea

  25. Niko The Boss on January 18, 2019 at 7:52 pm

    Make a version with all the maps joined together into 1 giant poster

  26. Love For Science on January 18, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    A very good video that explain how quantum mechanics is important and it isn’t a sort of magic that nobody understands!!! Thanks

  27. Hetero Suggestion on January 18, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    Life only exists, as the base of all matter is quanta.

  28. Циани Сундерлин on January 18, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    I really appreciate your channel. When you can make a map about aerodynamic please

  30. Marco Polo on January 18, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Let’s make 5 (or more) videos to really show what you assert.

  31. TutorialsNStuff on January 18, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Please make a map of engineering!

  32. MsPercival2 on January 18, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Grade 11 online chem/bio teacher here, this video is gold…I am always looking for real world examples to improve understanding. It is much easier for bio then for my chem students. I am new to your page, will share and check out more videos!

  33. Jibin George on January 18, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Wonderful videos and would you please tell which software or technique you use to create these videos.!!?

  34. Marylou Poirier on January 18, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    Really fascinating thanks !

  35. Username on January 18, 2019 at 8:08 pm

    You forgot your nose. It also uses Quantum physics.

  36. Chad x on January 18, 2019 at 8:08 pm

    I would appreciate quantum physics more if some people didn’t use it as an "evidence" for alternate reality and free will. lol

  37. خزام الحمدان Khazam Alhamdan on January 18, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    Khazam: Can we have a map for particle physics? please? 🙂

    thank you

  39. Marylou Poirier on January 18, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    Can you help me understand if and if so how quantum physics are making internet and phone technologies work too? Thanks !

  40. rahul bajaj on January 18, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    What type of software do you use for animation

  41. Isador Duskin on January 18, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Do anthropology

  42. Derek Scanlan on January 18, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    …but god doesn’t play dice! 🙂

  43. Ramalingeswara Rao Bhavaraju on January 18, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Good evening to Domain of Science. Thank you so much for explaining quantum technology everyday. Thank you so much sir.

  44. Randy James on January 18, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    I liked and disliked this video at the same time (-:-(

  45. mateus soares on January 18, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    Cara, achei muito bacana esse vídeo. vou usar ele num trabalho, gostaria de ter uma referência bibliográfica para poder citar esse seu excelentíssimo trabalho.

  46. Saksham Chaudhary on January 18, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Please tell me how can I buy your posters of physics and quantum physics.

  47. Shino on January 18, 2019 at 8:15 pm

    Great video.

  48. vivek udgir on January 18, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Ohhh my God just loving it and being a physics student watching the application of my studies …. want to study more about it and research in quantum physics as these part of physics still needs to study more and more

  49. Trupti Ekbote on January 18, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Found the video uninteresting ’cause you haven’t told how quantum physics works in these things. Except that the video was marvellous

  50. Ar man on January 18, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    You just put "quantum" before everything, don’t you? 😅
