Powerful Quantum Computing Device On Display In America

quantumcomputerA powerful quantum computer has been showcased at the American Physical Society in Dallas, United States. The device which uses “quantum states” of matter to carry out calculations, uses a scalable architecture that gives it the potential to vastly outperform conventional computers. According to the team behind the technology, the small system (6cm x 6cm chip) holds 9 quantum devices, including four “quantum bits” that does the calculations and could be further scaled up to 10 qubits by the end of 2011. This is good news for quantum technology and could pave way for super-fast computers to replace existing transistors-based ones.

The steady increase in complexity of quantum devices is brought about by what has been termed “the RezQu architecture” which has an edge in the important area of scalability thus making the development of much more complex circuits that would make up a proper quantum process or quantum computer very possible in the near future. This remarkable progress shows how far quantum technology has come although it may yet take a while before we begin to see quantum computers manufactured in large quantities and stocked on shelves in retail stores.

If indeed these research experiments are successful and large-scale quantum computers can be built, they will be able to process information and solve difficult tasks much faster than any traditional computer using the best known algorithms.

Is there really a need for faster computers?

    Time is money and every one is need of money. We are always in search of fastest computer to work much in less time.

    Think of all the complex tasks that will be completed at a fraction of the time. Like mapping the human genome. Or all those other processes where there are billions of iterations. Between quantum computing and Watson stuff will be done in seconds instead of years

      Thanks Travis. At the end of the day we always seem to find something to make existing technology kind of outdated, don’t we?

    Fascinating stuff. We hear so much about quantum physics. It will be interesting to get some real benefits from it.

    I think there is a need for faster computer, because it will make job easy and faster.

    The best quantum computer available to everyone is our brain. See the quantum soul theory.
