Quantum Computing is a new miner, available now at
Find resources relevant to quantum computing, searches, retrieval, and information assurance.
Access from introductory to advanced research papers and how-to articles. This 2017, move beyond classic IR and computing stuff and forward to new research paradigms like quantum information retrieval, quantum searches, quantputers, and their implications to encryption and information security.
During the last 20 years, quantum computing has mature and is now in the fast lane.
We already have quantum computers, quantum programming languages, and quantum pagerank algorithms. We even have quantum hackers and crackers.
So university computer science departments may want to start embracing quantum-oriented research projects and affine technologies. Same goes for private companies and marketing research companies.
So the challenge for this 2017 and upcoming years is…
“To bit, or not to bit, that is the qubit:”
That Quantum Computing and Searching is the next Information Security (IS) and Information Retrieval (IR) frontier is more than clear. According to Phys.org and quote
“The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is officially asking the public for help heading off a looming threat to information security: quantum computers, which could potentially break the encryption codes used to protect privacy in digital systems. NIST is requesting methods and strategies from the world’s cryptographers, with the deadline less than a year away.”

Now that Quantum Computers and Quantum Searches are at a corner near you, the implications are many: from search marketing to search apps, from social grids, to quantum PCs, from big challenges to big data, from quantum retrieval to mind retrieval: The sky is the limit. Back in 2013 we mentioned quantum searches in the context of XOR/XNOR searches.
A miner on quantum searches will soon be available at http://www.minerazzi.com. In the meantime, see some useful links below:

We are getting closer to Mind Retrieval. The implications of being able to mine the brain are obvious for all sciences, in addition to homeland security, law and order, marketing research, etc.
I got last night this news, “Scientists map brain’s ‘thesaurus’ to help decode inner thoughts
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have taken a step in that direction by building a “semantic atlas” that shows in vivid colors and multiple dimensions how the human brain organizes language. The atlas identifies brain areas that respond to words that have similar meanings
Last year I mentioned that we are getting close to Mind Retrieval.
That post was a reminder of a previous 2010 interview by Nuno Valenzuela, a visionary SEM from Spain. Great guy.
I met Nuno back in 2007 when I was invited to present at a Madrid Search Engine Congress (OJOBuscador) on Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI).
