One of the key insights that legendary physicist and Nobel Prize laureate Richard Feynman had was that quantum mechanics (the branch of physics that deals with subatomic particles, uncertainty principle, and many other concepts beyond classic physics) is just way too complicated to simulate using traditional computers. Nature, of course, can handle these complex calculations — computers however can’t do those same calculations (or would take a prohibitively long time and amount of resources to do so). But this isn’t just about being able to do more with computers in a faster (or smaller) way: It’s about solving problems that we couldn’t solve with traditional computers; it’s about a difference of kind not just degree. So what is a quantum computer and "qubits" — especially as compared to a traditional computer and bits? What is Grover’s Algorithm? And besides speed of processing, what are some of the new applications that wouldn’t have been possible before? From how traditional computers work and quantum computers will work to why this all matters, a16z Deal and Research team head Frank Chen walks us through the basics of quantum computing in this slide presentation. And even though may feel like you finally understand after watching this, just remember what Feynman once said: "If you think you understand quantum mechanics then you don’t understand quantum mechanics." [for sou…
"So, what do you do?" We get asked this question all the time. We introduce ourselves hundreds of times every year. Yet most of us do it very poorly. After an embarrassing self-introduction to one of his heroes, Clay Hebert vowed to improve how he introduces himself. In this talk from Jim Kwik’s Superhero Brain conference, you’ll learn Clay’s simple six-words-or-less framework to develop a confident way to introduce yourself or your business and start every relationship off on the right foot.

Mastering any physical skill takes practice. Practice is the repetition of an action with the goal of improvement, and it helps us perform with more ease, speed, and confidence. But what does practice actually do to make us better at things? Annie Bosler and Don Greene explain how practice affects the inner workings of our brains.

Elon Musk breaks down climate change for students at The Sorbonne in Paris right before the historic COP21 Climate Change Conference in which 170+ nations signed to reduce carbon emissions below 2C, and preferably under 1.5C.
This is one of the best basic explanations on climate change ever given in a short amount of time. Enjoy!
English subtitles provided for non-native English speakers.
Thanks to Elon Musk and his passion for helping humanity to transition to a 100% clean renewable energy economy!
