In A Major Breakthrough In Quantum Computing, Scientists Build Self-Correcting Quantum Device

A team of scientists from Google Inc and the University of California, Santa Barbara, announced on Wednesday that they are now a step closer to the development of a fully functional quantum computer. Such a machine, if developed, would be capable of performing calculations that would take a conventional computer millions of years to complete.

The development of quantum computers capable of performing operations many orders of magnitude faster than conventional computers has been a goal of computer scientists and physicists ever since the idea was first floated in the early 1980s. However, given the inherently unstable nature of “qubits” ...
