Quantum computers hold enormous potential for speeding up information processing speeds and revolutionizing the way computers solved problems. Now, scientists have succeeded in prototyping a new and highly resource efficient model of quantum computer--the boson sampling computer. It's a huge leap forward for quantum computers.

Quantum computers work by manipulating quantum objects as, for example, individual photons, electrons or atoms, and by harnessing the unique quantum features. This particular feature promises a dramatic increase in speed over classical computers--especially when it comes to a specific combinational ...
