How Does a Quantum Computer Work?

Quantum computers are almost here and will have far ranging benefits and impacts, so what’s all the fuss about and how does a quantum computer work? Classical computers generally have to consider each possible outcome individually when working through complex simulations. It’s a drawback that makes them slow and inefficient when resolving problems especially when a very large number of possible outcomes or interactions need to be worked through and considered. When quantum computers are used to tackle similar problems, they do so by firstly

A Beginner’s Guide to Quantum Computing

Quantum computing is in the news more and more as the technology evolves and scales. The day is fast approaching when their impact will be widespread and major new discoveries will be made. Quantum computers are an entirely new technology and instead of transistors and bits, quantum computers manipulate quantum particles. Things like captured spinning electrons and photons of light are used to form quantum bits or ‘qubits’ for short. It sounds pretty amazing and it is. But why bother going to all these lengths
