The Weekly Quantum Digest: Is Microsoft Heading Right To The Topological?

Microsoft says it’s close to unveiling a better qubit, when will quantum computers be in our pocket — and will quantum computing be the bomb, the geopolitical bomb, that is. Along with more quantum computing stories in the media this week.

Spotlight Story: 

“Microsoft has been working on a Topological qubit technology called a topological qubit that it expects will deliver benefits of quantum computing technology that today are mostly just a promise. After spending five years figuring out the complicated hardware of topological qubits, the company is almost ready to put them to use, said Krysta Svore, general manager of Microsoft’s quantum computing software work.”CNet
