Quantum computing race heats up as trapped ions rival microchips
Superconductivity, as exploited by IBM’s quantum computers, isn’t the only route to successIBMBy Jacob AronIn the race to build large-scale quantum computers, two contrasting strategies – one based on trapping ions, the other on more conventional technology – have drawn neck-and-neck. Both sides can now create simple devices that run multiple varieties...
I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its component fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers. That is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark
