Terminus is Online!

April 1, 2016

The long-awaited completion of the Terminus is finally here. The jewel in the crown of Metamorphosis is ready to take the stage, as the world's most powerful weapon in the fight against terrorism, and the civil unrest currently plaguing the us. The Terminus will contain the largest collection of data telemetry ever gathered together in one place. Terminus will be able to process massive amounts of digital information faster than ever before. This incredible achievement is possible because the Terminus is a massive supercomputer based on the latest in Quantum-Computing technology which uses Qubits or Quantum Bits. Traditionally, computers use Bits, which can either be a 1 or a 0. A Qubit can both be a 1 and 0 at the same time. This allows for a tremendous amount of computing power which has never been possible to be harnessed like this before.

We asked Scott Tanner, a lead developer on the project and a former member of the Standard Artificial Intelligence lab, about the Terminus. “We are proud of what we have accomplished here," said Scott. "This computer is the first of its kind in the world. With the power of Quantum Computing, we are able to crack highly-encrypted data by terrorist organizations, and other nefarious groups, whose sensitive information and secret communications would otherwise stay hidden from the proper authorities. What once would have taken thousands of years to crack, we can do in a matter of hours”. Additionally Scott went on to tell us about the complex and delicate cooling system that keeps the Terminus operational. “It’s a very complex system," Scott disclosed, "that keeps the Terminus very cold, around 15 millikelvin. It has to be this cold to enable the highly complex Quantum Computing processes to occur. If one of the Terminus cooling systems failed it could do some serious damage. Fortunately we are working on a solution to prevent such a problem from occurring.”

With the Terminus up and running we move one step closer to the Arrival.
