Quantum Computing in Call of Duty: Black Ops II

In 1994, Peter Shor developed an algorithm demonstrating that quantum computers are capable of RSA cryptanalysis. This led the National Security Agency and the Department of Defense to initiate a massive funding program, directed towards quantum computing research and development, that continues to this day.  447 more words
