Scientists Come Up with Blueprint for Supersized Quantum Computer

Quantum computing is back in the news – this time courtesy of a research team that has published a blueprint for what they are calling “the most powerful computer on Earth.” According to the press release issued on Wednesday, a quantum computer based on this blueprint can be built with currently available technologies and would have nearly unlimited computational power. The announcement sums up the significance of the new design thusly: “Once built, the computer’s capabilities mean it would have the potential to answer many questions in science; create new, lifesaving medicines; solve the most mind-boggling scientific problems; unravel the yet unknown mysteries of the furthest reaches of deepest space; and solve some problems that an ordinary computer would take billions of years to compute.” Read more at https://www.top500.org/news/scientists-come-up-with-blueprint-for-supersized-quantum-computer/
