New Dossier on Quantum Computing
IST Austria gives insights into the foundations and state of quantum computing
Quantum computing has been a hot topic for the last few years promising great advancements in material science, medicine, and our fundamental understanding of the world. At the moment, we are still in a very early phase of development, laying the groundwork for future technologies. This new dossier provides a short introduction to the underlying physics of quantum computing, why it could become as powerful as promised, and a brief overview of the current state of development.
Researchers at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria like Georgios Katsaros, Johannes Fink, and Andrew Higginbotham are working on untangling the fundamental riddles underlying quantum computing. In the dossier, they share some insights into their work and their own perspectives on this still nascent field.
