Researchers from Google may have demonstrated ‘quantum supremacy’ for the first time, opening pathways to a new era of computation.
A leaked research paper shows that quantum computer researchers may have overtaken conventional ones for the first time
Manufacturing quantum computers would be a lot easier with existing technology than the exotic components currently used to build them.
Quantum machine learning is an exciting, rapidly growing field.
Quantum mechanics could unlock new forms of machine learning.

IBM’s quantum computer, Q System One.
Quantum computers are set to revolutionise technology, but very few people know how to use them.
Combining quantum computing with neural networks could produce AI that can make very complex decisions quickly.
Detecting the errors in data is one thing, but correction them is still possible at the quantum computing level.
One of the challenges for quantum computing is knowing how to detect and correct errors that may occur in the data. And we can do that without even knowing what the data says.
Quantum computing may still have the status of a rank outsider, but it's making gains.
Michelle Simmons was honoured for her leadership on research into quantum computing.
From researchers into the future of quantum computing to those working on low cost energy storage or explaining why onions make you cry, all were winners in the annual Eureka Prizes.
Artist’s impression of an electron wave function (blue), confined in a crystal of nuclear-spin-free 28-silicon atoms (black). The spin of the electron encodes a long-lived, high fidelity quantum bit.

A dramatic increase in the amount of time data can be stored on a single atom means silicon could once again play a vital role in the development of super-fast computers. The silicon chip revolutionised…
As hard to understand as the movie The Matrix.
Over the next five years, the UK government will spend £270m on supporting research in “quantum technology”. When budget announcements were made in 2013, provisions for offshore wind and shale gas extraction…
Teleportation is still well and truly entrenched in science fiction, unless you’re a photon.
Thanks to two studies published in Nature last Thursday, the chance of successful teleportation has considerably increased. Which is a good thing, right? Whether or not you’ve ever been on a long-haul…
A team of researchers have determined a new way to distinguish quantum bits in the eventual creation of a quantum computer…
