Weird magic ingredient for quantum computing discovered

A new study done by researchers at the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) has suggested that a form of quantum weirdness is essential to build quantum computers.

The study is published in the journal Nature. In the study, the researchers showed that a weird aspect of quantum theory called contextuality is required to achieve the so-called magic which is essential for computation of universal quantum.
