The idea came to me a few years ago when it was late at night and I was feeling insomniac. I was just randomly wondering about different things and suddenly thinking about squares of numbers. I always thought that calculating squares of numbers inside your head could get harder for large numbers. Before I give you the method, we have to recall two mathematical identities which most of us learnt in high school.

  1. a²-b² = (a-b)(a+b)
  2. a²-b²+b² = a²

As you can see, the above two things are trivial in their nature. Now keep one thing in mind, let the…

If you have heard about quantum computers you have likely heard about quantum error correction. If not, Quantum computing is the use of phenomena of quantum mechanics such as superposition, interference, and entanglement to perform computation. This is done via computers known as quantum computers. Now that we have established briefly what a quantum computer is, let’s understand what is quantum error correction?

But before we discuss quantum error correction, we should understand what error correction is.

Due to the current pandemic, many of us would have been in an online meeting on a platform like zoom. Here there could…

Let’s start from the beginning which was like 6th June, I was just scrolling through the internet but then I randomly came across something which was the Qiskit Global Summer School. I was curious to what it was as it seemed quite intriguing and overwhelming at first. I thought it was one of those things where it would be beyond my scope and I wouldn’t be able to keep up. Regardless of it, I took some time to read the web-page and came to know that the requirements weren’t much. I came to the conclusion that let’s enroll here what’s…

Introduction

Fake news, in a nutshell, can be said as news that is manipulated or consists of deliberate misinformation generally caused to spread some kind of propaganda or cause defamation. Emergence into the popular consciousness of “fake news” wholly or mostly fabricated stories in the style of news reports usually posted online and often shared virally which caters separately to both those on the left and the right This has been substantially rising, with no one blame but the Digital Revolution. Due to the digital revolution, it’s very easy to spread fake news within a matter of seconds if not…

Is it possible to have a drug legalized nation or perhaps the entire world?

Drugs Legalization is legalizing the usage, selling, buying as well as the distribution of all narcotic drugs which include Cocaine, Marijuana, and Methamphetamine, etc. Drug Legalization may sound delusional not as delusional as having a 5 trillion-dollar economy by 2024. Drug legalization is a thing that would surely exist in a free society. Now, what does that mean one might ask? It is a society where all individuals act voluntarily, having the freedom to obtain power and resources to fulfill their potential. If we want to live in it one of the most prominent points of it is the right…
