A quintillion calculations a second.. Thats incredible. It could crack most types of encryption in a second.

That kind of computing power is almost scary. Imagine what a government could do with that kind of power.

That would be a waste of resources to go after basic encryptions that a much cheaper super computer could do nearly as fast. It would be more for hiding stuff behind a computer capable of making it impossible to crack through. Basically government vs government kinda stuff. On the other side, researching and creating similar lifelike models would also benefit a government.
