Primitive quantum computer finds application
Bristol, UK (SPX) May 12, 2016
Scientists and engineers from the Universities of Bristol and Western Australia have developed how to efficiently simulate a "quantum walk" on a new design for a primitive quantum computer. Quantum computers have significant potential to open entirely new directions for processing information and to overhaul the way that we think about and use the science of computation. Modern computers already play a huge role in society - they routinely handle and process vast amounts of data and solve calculat ... read more
