Ubiquity: IS QUANTUM COMPUTING FOR REAL? AN INTERVIEW WITH CATHERINE MCGEOCH OF D-WAVE SYSTEMS

Source: 

"In this interview, computer scientist Catherine McGeoch demystifies quantum computing and introduces us to a new world of computational thinking.

Imagine the world's fastest computer requiring a totally new way of thinking: no sequencing, no conditions, no loops—indeed, no instructions. The machine is not a set of logic boxes controlled by clock; it is instead a large number of cells each containing a quantum bit or "qubit," connected with each other through weighted links. Changing just one bit triggers a cascade of changes in all the others..." Read the article at Ubiquity
