    Cats, Qubits, and Teleportation: The Spooky World of Quantum Computation Applications (Part 3)

    by Holly Cummins Follow 5 Followers on  Jul 14, 2018

    The same factors which make quantum theory so startling also make quantum computers very difficult to implement in practice: quantum phenomena don't manifest themselves in everyday life. Given the cost, size, and physical delicacy of quantum computers, they're a perfect fit for the 'pay per use' cloud consumption model.

    Cats, Qubits, and Teleportation: The Spooky World of Quantum Algorithms (Part 2)

    by Holly Cummins Follow 5 Followers on  Jul 06, 2018 1

    Quantum information theory really took off once people noticed that the computational complexity of quantum systems was actually a computational capacity, which could be applied to other problems, such as factorization, which is used within public key cryptography. This article explores quantum algorithms and their applicability.

    Cats, Qubits, and Teleportation: The Spooky World of Quantum Computation (Part One)

    by Holly Cummins Follow 5 Followers on  Jun 29, 2018

    By the time most of us reach adulthood, we know a few basic truths: cats cannot be simultaneously alive and dead; objects at opposite ends of the universe can’t affect each other; and computers operate on 0s and 1s, and that’s the most fundamental unit of information. The premise of quantum computation is that these truths are partially wrong.
