AMD stock is up $1.50, iNtel is down $2.

Which makes no sense, since Intel is not the only one affected by Spectre.... it's literally all cpu makers. Including, yes, AMD. And the fix will cost them the same performance.
Since when has the stock market ever made sense.

A different variant affects AMD and it does not sound like they will be hit as hard.

list of patches and updates etc

Well, that depends on how you look at it, or not.

LOLOL, okay that made me smile.

Neither resemble the human brain, quantum computer or not.

It's also unlikely that "human brain"-like computers will be a thing, at least in terms of the progression of computer and AI technology. We're going to have practical mass produceable quantum computing down pat LONG before we have the neuroscience of how the brain functions figured out. Technology is advancing much faster than neuroscience. And until we can understand it, it's not going to be possible to replicate the way it functions.

It's sort of like genetically engineering people. We've already got a technology that lets us write or delete single base-pairs of
our choice into a genome, with amazing accuracy. But we don't understand what all our genes do or what all they are responsible for, so we can't really just go around designing custom lifeforms.

I keep warning you. Doors and corners, kid. That's where they get you. Humans are too fucking stupid to listen.

Article's author completely missed breakthroughs in quantum computing.

What does that have to do with the articles point? The most effective AI technology we have today is the deep learning computational graph. It consists of a graph representation of a system of linear equations that optimizes its coefficients when trained on input so as to achieve optimal performance when generating regression or classification output.This is the same thing as a so called “neural net”. One is a description of a mathematical model. The other is a marketing term. Neither resemble the human brain, quantum computer or not.

Well, that depends on how you look at it, or not.
