Whatever Happened to Business Supercomputers?

It once seemed inevitable—and it sure is—that supercomputers help companies meet the demands posed by massive databases, complex engineering tools, and other processor attrition challenges. Then, all of a sudden, technology and companies took a different path. Chris Munro, co-founder and chief scientist at quantum computing company IonQ, provides a simple explanation for the sudden … Read more

‘We Need A Lot More Machines’

In November, IBM introduced its 127-qubit quantum processor Eagle, which showed that the dream of achieving true quantum computing power appears to be on the right track — although work must continue before real applications of the technology can be realized. The demand for the development of quantum computers, which apply quantum physics to computations … Read more
