Pieces of the Quantum Computing Puzzle Materialize

In prior issues, we’ve examined the implications of making quantum computers commercially available. We’ve also spelled out the enormous technological hurdles that researchers must overcome to make practical quantum computing a reality. Now, after 30 years of research, primitive versions of nearly every required technology now exist in laboratories around the world and we’re getting closer every day to a literal “quantum leap” in computing power. So, what can we expect quantum computers to be able to do in the next 10 to 15 years? We’ll tell you.
