This may be a watershed moment in the history of computer science. The term for a clear case in which a quantum computer can perform computations or run algorithms that no classical computer, now or in the conceivable future, could is “quantum advantage.” Until now, it’s never been achieved. Sure, there are algorithms that, theoretically couldn’t be run on a classical system. But none of… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: IBM
