Steve BrierleyNewsLeave a Comment

There are many quantum algorithms that exhibit an advantage over known classical algorithms. Such a diversity of results can make it difficult to express the computational capability of a quantum computer in a clear and faithful manner to someone new … Read More

Quantum Moore’s Law

David HeadleyBlogLeave a Comment

From the invention of the transistor in 1947, technological progress in their design and manufacture has been exponential. The well-known Moore’s law observes that the number of transistors which can be squeezed onto a silicon chip doubles about every two … Read More
