Faster quantum computers on horizon

Japan’s NEC Corp. and a public research body said on Thursday they had made a technological breakthrough that brought ultra-fast quantum computers a step closer. Quantum computers, when brought into practical use, are expected to far surpass the capabilities of today’s most powerful supercomputers, particularly in fields such as data mining, or searching large databases for particular pieces of information. However, an NEC spokesman said that quantum computers for commercial use were unlikely to be available before 2020. NEC and Japanese government-funded research group RIKEN said they had successfully created a state of quantum entanglement between two solid-state qubits for the first time in the world. Quantum entanglement describes the entwining of two or more particles without physical contact. Full Story
