QUANTUM COMPUTATION AND QUANTUM ALGORITHMS

Educating ourselves in the fundamentals of quantum computing [or the theory of it] is paramount to understanding even the simplest of quantum topics. This series has three parts: Part 1 breaks down ‘quantum weirdness’ into its constituent parts ~ qubits, spin…Part 2 delves into quantum algorithms from quantum-safe cryptography across Shor’s algorithm to the prospects of machine learning being combined with quantum computing…and now, part 3 looks at the challenges to achieving quantum supremacy from error rates, physical size, and cost to the unknown unknowns.

Part 1 is found at InfoQ, here…

Part 2 is found at InfoQ, here…

Part 3 is found at InfoQ, here…
