Quantum Computing Continues to Advance

As explained in Ride the Wave by Fred Rogers and Richard Lalich, quantum computers have the potential to solve problems that are literally impossible to solve with conventional computing technology. Such machines are expected to enable enormous breakthroughs in pharmaceuticals, materials, genomics, and cryptography. However, huge hurdles remain in converting a conceptual design pioneered in the 1960s by Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman into a 21st century reality. In the past year however, researchers have made significant progress toward this goal. Where does the research stand? Who is involved? What are the implications for consumers, investors, and business decisionmakers? We’ll provide the answers.
