Is there a Murphy's Law over the other side of the Pond? Or a Sod's Law if IT's a Buggy Project.
"Whereas a regular bit is either 1 or 0, a qubit can be 1, 0 or some of both just as a metaphorical cat in a box may be dead, alive or in a mysterious semi-undead waveform zombie condition. ...... "This is the first time anyone has demonstrated a programmable quantum processor for more than one qubit," says NIST postdoc researcher David Hanneke. "It's a step toward the big goal of doing calculations with lots and lots of qubits. The idea is you'd have lots of these processors, and you'd link them together.""
Epic Result, chaps ..... Chaos Squared, with the Left not knowing what the Right is doing and the Middle not giving a Fiddlers because they're all doing IT Together Different and Screwing someone else for Themselves. It is bound to be a Smashing Success.
Might I suggest its Colossal Reserve Power for Federal Disaster Recovery Programs and the Stimulation of Fisci which are all heading Due South this Deep Winter of Virtual Discontent.
"and the US military are also known to be interested in the idea." ... Well, blow me down with a feather, who would have thought it, whenever causing bits of chaos to churn into dollar denominated destruction is so very much not their thing.
Does anyone else think that it is gonna be a bugger to Properly Program to does it is told rather than do as IT wants? :-) ...... unless you have the Knack/Crack, that is.
