IBM Busts Record for ‘Superconducting’ Quantum Computer

Today's quantum computers are no more than experiments. Researchers can string together a handful of quantum bits - seemingly magical bits that store a "1″ and "0″ at the same time - and these ephemeral creations can run relatively simple algorithms. But new research from IBM indicates that far more complex quantum… » 2/28/12 6:40am 2/28/12 6:40am
