Quantum Supercomputer Making Real Progress

IBM has been working on a computer that will outperform all current supercomputers. Quantum computers aren’t held back by the current, on/off transistors used in the logic that runs computers today. IBM will use “superconducting qubits” which allow the computer to perform millions of computations at one time. These qubits can be in both the on and off position at the same time (hence the idea behind “quantum” where observation effects...
