Short Bytes: Quantum physicists are trying to solve the quantum physics problem using a game called Quantum Moves. This game asks a human to grab and move a well of water from one to another spot. Using this game, they want to teach the machines about the human’s intuitive learning and guesswork.
The game can be downloaded from the scienceathome.org website. It downloads in the form of a .zip file which can be later extracted to a .exe file which is basically a game application. Once the game is installed, you can either play the game as a guest or you can also register.
The data generated is sent to the scientists and researchers. The game is easy to understand and play. Basically, in Quantum Moves, the challenge for the player is to manipulate a well of water on a movable line, and carry a volume of sloshing liquid from one spot to another.
This game is aimed to find the human tendency in grabbing and moving a specific atom with a laser in a quantum computer. This is something computers aren’t especially good at, and that’s where humans are better at quantum physics than supercomputers.
By this way, a machine will be able to get better at physics challenges that humans solve with intuition and guesswork because machine learns from the numerical calculations.
