Recent suggests quantum computers could solve problems with breathtaking speed by comparison to current supermodels.
So far researchers have only been able to control a handful of qubits — the basic units of information in a quantum computer. A new approach could help them control millions at a time.
Google claims quantum supremacy – IBM says not so fast. One researcher explains why he doesn’t see quantum computers outpacing classical computers any time soon … and maybe not ever.
Quantum computers aren’t about to take over, but this is an important milestone.
