You may have heard that the next wave of computing, which will supercharge artificial intelligence and cryptography, involves going quantum. Most of us aren't clued up on the art of harnessing elementary
Quantum computers are fragile miracles of physics that are unreliable, cost-prohibitive, and more error-prone than a shortstop with no depth perception. But, if we ever want to get to Star Trek levels
A team of researchers from IBM, the University of Waterloo, and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) today published the results of an experiment proving a quantum computer can do things a classical
I was part of a panel at the 2018 meeting of the National Association of Science Writers on communicating quantum physics, and they asked me to do a brief overview of the field suitable for non-physicists.
There’s a brilliant Dilbert cartoon where the pointy-haired boss asks Wally how his quantum computer project is doing and whether he can observe it, to which Wally replies ‘that’s a tricky question.’ pointy-haired
