New technique in error-prone quantum computing makes classical computers sweat

IBM’s quantum computer is housed inside a cryogenic container (center) surrounded by a tangle of cables used to control and read out its qubits. (Photo credit: IBM) Despite constant improvements in quantum computers, they are still noisy and error-prone, leading to questionable or wrong answers. Scientists predict that they won’t really outperform today’s “classical” supercomputers… Read More »
