Can quantum computers handle 'big' data?

While there are many interesting questions that a computer can solve with barely any data (such as factorization, which requires "only" a single integer), most real-world applications, such as machine ...

Simulating a system inside a system

The minimum size of a computer that could simulate the universe would be the universe itself. This is quite a pretty big theory in classical computing and physics because to contain the information ...
