Excuse me a moment—I am going to be bombastic, over excited, and possibly annoying. The race is run, and we have a winner in the future of quantum computing. IBM, Google, and everyone else can turn in their quantum computing cards and take up knitting.
OK, the situation isn’t that cut and dried yet, but a recent paper has described a fully programmable, chip-based optical quantum computer. That idea presses all my buttons, and until someone restarts me, I will talk of nothing else.
Love the light
There is no question that quantum computing has come a long way
