Bits vs Qubits: Keller Center Director, Margaret Martonosi Discusses the Power of Quantum Computing

Relying on subtle quantum mechanical effects for data storage and computation, quantum computers show promise to vastly speed up certain types of calculations. Martonosi, the Hugh Trumbull Adams ’35 Professor of Computer Science, explained in an interview that although quantum computers are fundamentally different than classical ones, both require an efficient chain of software to operate. Her co-authors in Nature are computer science professors Frederic Chong and Diana Franklin of the University of Chicago. To read more...
