Construction of practical quantum computers radically simplified
Sussex, UK (SPX) Dec 06, 2016
Scientists at the University of Sussex have invented a ground-breaking new method that puts the construction of large-scale quantum computers within reach of current technology. Quantum computers could solve certain problems - that would take the fastest supercomputer millions of years to calculate - in just a few milliseconds. They have the potential to create new materials and medicines, as well as solve long-standing scientific and financial problems. Universal quantum computers can be bu ... read more
