Future salvation. What would it look like? Will A.I. save us from ourselves? A recent article in Time magazine describes the efforts of D-Wave to achieve quantum effects in computing by cooling a niobium computer chip down to -459.6 degrees, just above absolute zero. 985 more words
Work is underway around the world to revolutionise computers using the principles of quantum mechanics.

A new study might help confirm that D-Wave Systems’ quantum computer chip might actually be what it claims to be. Conducted at the University of Southern California, where the D-Wave system owned by aerospace contractor Lockheed Martin is based, a team of scientists has concluded that the 128-qubit processor “behaved in a way that agrees with a model called ‘quantum Monte Carlo,’ yet disagreed with two candidate classical models.” In two weeks at our… 24 more words
Re “Quantum Leap” : Hats off to you, Lev Grossman, for your lucid and informative article on quantum computing!
Grossman names the male physicists, calls them “highly influential” and “internationally respected.” Meanwhile the unnamed female physicist is described as holding a “bake-off” between quantum and classical computers. 484 more words
