YC-Backed Rigetti Computing Raises $2.5M To Create Commercial Quantum Systems

Once confined to research labs and science fiction, quantum computing is finally reaching a point where researchers aren’t simply trying to find out what’s possible, but looking at how they can actually work the technology into commercial hardware. 511 more words


Quantum Computing

A loose idea of quantum computing first came to me while I was in college about 1990 when I read a short book by, or about, Albert Einstein. 137 more words
