Now you see it; now you don't - another quantum computing advance
Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!
Here's a link to a mind boggling advance in quantum computing. A team has successfully transported information, in the form of light, that existed in two states at the same time, allowing it to be destroyed in one spot and recreated in another. This is a major step towards quantum computing as it allows a computer to read a 0 and a 1 simultaneously rather than consecutively.
Frankly, I'm not smart enough to understand this in any detail, but if it works the sky will soon be the limit for computing power. I started following these developments several years ago when it all sounded like sheer science fiction. Today's story confirms we are getting close and closer to a sci-fi reality.
Now you see it; now you don't
