Quantum computers promise to revolutionize information technology by solving problems beyond the scope of classical computers in fields as diverse as cryptography, medicine, finance, artificial intelligence and logistics.Current quantum computers are at a similar stage to where classical computers were in the late 1940s. Machines like ENIAC, the world’s first electronic computer, required rooms of control systems to achieve any useful function. Over a period of more than seven decades engineers have overcome enormous scientific and engineering challenges allowing billions of transistors to fit into a mobile phone.Today, we are facing an even bigger challenge as we take quantum computing beyond the ENIAC stage.Why?In order for quantum devices to do anything useful, they need instructions. That means sending and receiving...
