Spreading light over quantum computers

Scientists at Linköping University have shown how a quantum computer really works and have managed to simulate quantum computer properties in a classical computer. "Our results should be highly significant in determining ...

Researcher sketches a path toward quantum computing

As new devices move quantum computing closer to practical use, the journal Nature recently asked Princeton computer scientist Margaret Martonosi and two colleagues to assess the state of software needed to exploit this powerful ...

Scientists pinpoint the singularity for quantum computers

Researchers from the University of Bristol have discovered that super-powerful quantum computers, which scientists and engineers across the world are racing to build, need to be even more powerful than previously thought ...

The quantum revolution is a step closer

A new way to run a quantum algorithm using much simpler methods than previously thought has been discovered by a team of researchers at the University of Bristol. These findings could dramatically bring forward the development ...

Algorithms are watching

In his prescient novel "1984," English author George Orwell predicted a future that bears an uncanny resemblance to current reality—except for a simple twist. Rather than Big Brother watching, today we have big brothers—plural—in ...
