Featured article in WIRED: First Quantum Cloud
We were recently feature in Wired magazine! They profile Geordie Rose, our founder and CTO, and delve into our work on the first quantum cloud:
If you build a large enough quantum computer, it’s exponentially faster than anything in the classical world. It would be fast enough to, say, instantly break the encryption algorithms that protect communication and electronic commerce on today’s internet.
But first you have to build it. And that’s not easy. Qubits must be completely isolated from the classical world. If you interact with one, it collapses into a single state — i.e., it changes into just an ordinary bit. The challenge is to find a way of connecting up lots of qubits without breaking them.
Rose says he’s found one.
