Ancient Inventory Lists (and Quantum Computing)

Some industrious researcher has transcribed thousands of lists of households’ goods in some small German town from the 17th and 18th centuries.

I love this kind of story. Datasets are so easy to build and analyze now relative to, say, 10 or 20 years ago.

And anyone interested in projecting trends in such computing power might try an online course in Quantum Computing!
