Quantum computing has a new machine logic, no longer binary but with a third state, the qubit. In quantum physics this state is known as Super Position. For computing, beyond 1 and 0 the qubit represents something in-between, maybe. This new logic derived from quantum might enable artificial consciousness.

Quantum computing is acquiring belief with this third state, an important aspect of human consciousness. Belief is linked to identity, emotions like love are questionable. I don’t think AI is currently dangerous, but if quantum computing can acquire consciousness it might become so.
