Quantum computing breakthrough: It's closer than ever

Japanese researchers described an algorithm that dramatically accelerates a specific quantum computing workload. More significantly, the workload itself (called time evolution operators) has applications in condensed matter physics and quantum chemistry -- two fields that can unlock new worlds within our own.

    This algorithm breakthrough brings practical use closer to feality

    the performance gains are extraordinary! Through an improved algorithm (itself a hybrid of quantum and classical methods), future quantum computers can be made simpler than we thought possible: they'll be able to tackle bigger problems sooner than we expected, and at a lower cost. And the performance gains don't stop there.

    Microsoft Research announced a major breakthrough in its quantum computing pursuit — the foundation for a new type of qubit, one which had never left the world of theory before. Microsoft ultimately still hasn't produced devices based on its new qubit design but is adding credence to their feasibility with proofs produced by immense simulations within Microsoft's Azure Quantum cloud infrastructure
