    Major step forward in quantum computing taken with optical chip

    The University of Bristol in the UK and NTT in Japan are behind the development.

    cracking quantum computing will be on par with the invention of electricity, it will propel our race through the ages. That is if the Americans don't get it first, otherwise we are likely doomed to a world war.

    As I understand it, no. According to what I've read, quantum computers have the ability to process a lot of operations at the same time, but they are not that fast with each individual operation. They are like a CPU with hundreds or thousands of slow cores.

    That means that, to make good use of them, they'll need to write all the software for them from scratch, and the new software will have to be quite different from much of the code we already have.
