Back in late January we talked about new advances in quantum computing. Science’s Jan 23 report talked about scientists’ success in using a qbit’s state of essentially occupying two spaces at the same time to, in essence, teleport it. A baby step perhaps, but pretty exciting stuff.
Now Microsoft has announced the eXtreme Computing Group (XCG) headed by Dan Reed. Formed this month, the group will develop, “radical new approaches to ultrascale and high-performance computing hardware and software.” Among others, these approaches include quantum computing.
Is it possible we’re that close? Stay tuned for more news from XCG.
