CSAIL expert weighs in on whether Google's latest gadget is a legitimate quantum computer
27 May 2014
Is Google's latest gadget - called "the D-Wave" - a legitimate quantum computer? Wired Magazine recently explored the issue with quantum scientists like CSAIL's Scott Aaronson.
From the article:
Quantum computing is so new and so weird that no one is entirely sure whether the D-Wave is a quantum computer or just a very quirky classical one. Not even the people who build it know exactly how it works and what it can do.
