IBM touts quantum computing breakthrough
According to IBM scientist Matthias Steffen, Big Blue has chosen to employ superconducting qubits, whose unique properties allow quantum computers to work on millions of computations at once.
In contrast, the average desktop PC is only capable of handling minimal simultaneous computations. To be sure, a single 250-qubit state contains more bits of information than there are atoms in the universe.
These properties will obviously have wide-spread implications for the field of data encryption where quantum computers could factor very large numbers like those used to decode and encode sensitive information.
“The quantum computing work we are doing shows it is no longer just a brute force physics experiment. It’s time to start creating systems based on this science that will take computing to a new frontier,” said Steffen.
“Other potential applications for quantum computing may include searching databases of unstructured information, performing a range of optimization tasks and solving previously unsolvable mathematical problems.”
