'Holy Grail' Of Computing

Scientists Hail Latest Quantum Computer As 'Holy Grail' of Computing (+Podcast, ~14 min.)

Elizabeth Hockman | March 29, 2016

Engineers and computer scientists are continually updating computers, making them faster, more powerful.
But a group of researchers have come up with new type of a quantum computer. It’s a device that harnesses the strange laws of physics to solve problems more complex than any our current computers are capable of tackling.
This quantum computer, according to a paper just published in the journal Science, is composed of just five atoms. And particularly exciting for researchers: they believe it is easily scalable to larger versions.
