Futurist’s Cheat Sheet: Quantum Computing — from ReadWriteWeb.com by Dan Rowinski


Moore’s Law describes the phenomenon that makes this year’s computer more capable and less expensive than last year’s. But it won’t go on forever. While engineers have come up with various schemes to keep it rolling, quantum computing is the best hope for extending it indefinitely. The concept has been proven in the lab, but working quantum computers are not a foregone conclusion. Here is a quick-and-dirty primer on a very complicated technology. (The “Futurist’s Cheatsheet” series surveys technologies on the horizon: their promise, how likely they are, and when they might become part of our daily lives. This article is Part 3.)
