Just when you thopught you understood the current computer technology we all use, along comes this mind-boggling new science to upend everything. Impossible sounding figures for doing calculations with qubits.
[…] By the time you get to 300 qubits, you’ve got a computer that can do more “calculations” than there are atoms in the universe.
That’s why the blog TechTarget described quantum computing this way: “Development of a quantum computer, if practical, would mark a leap forward in computing capability far greater than that from the abacus to a modern day supercomputer, with performance gains in the billion-fold realm and beyond.”
Read about the science and technology, and the implications for the future.
