Intel’s Quantum Computing Research Melds Old-school Silicon With Latest Quantum Tech | Digital Trends

Quantum computers, once they become common, will complete difficult tasks thousands of times more quickly than current PCs. That could obviously threaten a classic chipmaker like Intel, but it plans to use its knowledge of silicon production to build quantum chips more quickly than its peers.

About #Quantum computing design, @intel Chief says : We’re essentially using the same process lines, same tools, same design rules to do this, and that’s an advantage for Intel

Why This Quantum-Encrypted Video Hangout Is a Big Deal – But there are limits …

Even if this is a big improvment I quoted the following part :

…So Pan’s group had to incorporate conventional telecom technology to propagate their quantum signals. At several points in their network, they had to convert quantum information (polarizations) into classical information (voltages and currents) and then back into quantum. This isn’t ideal, because the absolute security of a quantum key relies on its quantum-ness. Anytime the key gets converted into classical information, normal hacking rules apply…

Just what we all wanted: super secret, super long meetings that span the entire world.
