Quantum Computing: Qubits Based on Artificial Atoms Prove to be Stable

By Dick Weisinger

Today’s computers are based on the the idea of bits that are either in a 0 or 1 state. The states of the standard bits in computer hard drive storage are controlled by magnetism. Research in quantum computing is investigating

Quantum Breakthroughs: Scientists Set Sights on Quantum Computing

‘Breakthrough’ echoed across science journal headlines these past few weeks in the world of quantum computing. Scientists across the globe are focused on advancing the capabilities of quantum computing and barriers are falling. Some of the breakthrough headlines include: A

Quantum Computing: Building Qubits from Silicon

By Dick Weisinger

Next-generation computers are expected to be based on principles from quantum computing. Computers of the future are expected to be able to performs many orders of magnitude faster than the computers we use today. While the foundation of computers today

Quantum Computing: The Coming Threat to Tech Security

By Dick Weisinger

Haim Isreal, Bank of America strategist, said that “quantum computing could be an even more radical technology in terms of its impact on businesses than the smartphone has been. This is going to be a revolution.” A major worry is

Quantum Computing: Claiming Victory over Standard Silicon

By Dick Weisinger

Quantum computers are based on quantum physics theory. Information is encoded using special kinds of bits that can maintain more than two on-off states like traditional computers. Quantum encoding states are called qubits. A single quantum bit or qubit might
