about

Quantum computers can now perform certain kinds of tasks faster than the world's most powerful classical computers, and quantum processing power doubles with each new qubit (quantum bit) added to the system.

lyrics

Information density unbeatable in this industry 
Mincemeat made out of classical rap tendencies
So pick your favorite synonym for “supreme”
Eminence, excellency

Call it “Indefinitely Deep Skill”

John Preskill, get a release filled
Agitated electrons, be still
Like a ten millikelvin dilution fridge, be chill
Double exponential growth, that’s a steep hill

Let the beat spill, rhymes hit the 808s
Logic gates pullin’ lines from a database
Animal, and I ain’t talkin’ ‘bout The Muppets
Every word search Grover Algorithm-level luscious

If you think you got a better algorithm, then run it
Simulate it or sum it – do somethin’ on Summit
So come on, who want it? My mental computer quantum
I got that superposition, you got that Boolean logic

That string of classical bits that rapidly switch
Faster than abacuses but no match for entanglement
How can I rap like this, with no faulty words?
It's 'cause I shop that search out to the multiverse

I shop that search out to the…

Qubits, on a microchip
Any noise and they might flip
Qubits, decohere and fail
Noisy intermediate scale

Qubits, with amplitudes
That switch like vacuum tubes
Qubits, in quantum states
Watch them calculate

Oh, watch them calculate

One qubit, two qubit, three qubit, four
Five qubit, six qubit, seven, keep score
Sycamore style, more sicker than yours
Every qubit doubles the circuit before

Fifty four, one qubit hits the floor
Only nine quadrillion states left in store
Three hundred qubits of data encodes more
Than there’s atoms in the universe, ask Niels Bohr

And yes, when you listen to any lyric I’m spittin’
Don’t forget, it’s the era before error-correction
It’s the NISQ, but once we get ancillas connected
That can be tested, without decohering the rest of it

Woo!
A thousand physical qubits should probably do it
A parliamentary grouping into a 'logical qubit'
And with a thousand logic qubits process computing
Imagination’s the only limit to what we can do with it

Woo!
Machine learning, autonomous driving
Efficient power transmission, drug synthesizing
Molecular design, supply chain optimizing
And last but not least, quantum rhyming

Qubits, on a microchip
Any noise and they might flip
Qubits, decohere and fail
Noisy intermediate scale

Qubits, with amplitudes
That switch like vacuum tubes
Qubits, in quantum states
Watch them calculate

Oh, watch them calculate

Quantum computing is like a song you can play
Every three minutes and twenty seconds of every day
And every chorus was written for us to recite
While a supercomputer chokes on a petabyte

Quantum algorithms are hidden diamonds
You gotta find them, put them in the system and try them
Physical simulation is a difficult assignment
‘Cause nature is quantum, damn it, just ask Feynman

Computational explosions emerge 
From just a couple of swerves, ridiculous integers
Look up from the earth, see the satellites whir
This is just the era between Sputnik and Mir

When the payoff’s near but not here from a Bloch sphere
It’s all beautifully weird, until it decoheres
And still it improves with each test
This is gonna be the one to…
Ah, blue screen of death

So how supreme is it?
Whatever, just keep it humming
And keep the media hungry
‘Cause Quantum Winter is Coming
And on the far side of the J-Curve, whoah!
How high can an exponential go?

On the far side like "Whoah
How high can it go?!"

Qubits, on a microchip
Any noise and they might flip
Qubits, decohere and fail
Noisy intermediate scale

Qubits, with amplitudes
That switch like vacuum tubes
Qubits, in quantum states
Watch them calculate

Oh, watch them calculate
