How the US Could Achieve Superconducting Supercomputing in Five Years


The Summary Report of the 2nd IEEE Rebooting Computing Summit (RCS 2, 14-16 May 2014, Santa Cruz) is now available


Error-Free Quantum Computing Made Possible in New Experiment
Quantum Computing promises a revolutionary new approach to digital computing, but it is in the early research stage, and its prospects for practical application are still unclear. However, one requirement has been the need for quantum bits (or "qubits") to maintain quantum coherence for long enough that a quantum logic gate could produce a reliable result. A recent experiment using low-temperature superconducting qubits at the University of California, Santa Barbara, claims to have been the first to demonstrate the required coherence time.
