The quantum computer is no longer the stuff of science fiction.
Pioneering physicists are on the brink of unloking a new quantum
universe which provides a better representation of reality than our
everyday experiences and common sense ever could. The birth of
quantum computers -- which, like Schr?dinger's famous 'dead and
alive' cat, rely on entities like elctrons, photons or atoms
existing in two states at the same time -- is set to turn the
computing world on its head.
