(CWI) When the first fully-functional quantum computers are finally built they will likely have extremely small memories, so they will require specially-designed algorithms that don’t use a lot of memory. Stacey Jeffery is a tenure-track researcher at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam who designs these types of algorithms. One of the algorithms she…..

(TechnologyReview) Evidence that quantum searches are an ordinary feature of electron behavior may explain the genetic code, one of the greatest puzzles in biology. Searching databases is a foundational task in computer science, used for everything from finding telephone numbers to breaking cryptographic codes. So any speed-up is a significant advance. The physicist Lov Grover…..

(TheConversation) A team of researchers from the UK and France have demonstrated that it may well be possible to build a quantum computer from conventional silicon-based electronic components. This could pave the way for large-scale manufacturing of quantum computers much sooner than might otherwise be possible. There are two main reasons why making a quantum…..

(SpectrumIEEE) NIST has challenged researchers to develop a new generation of quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms. Many experts don’t expect a quantum computer capable of performing the complex calculations required to crack modern cryptography standards to become a reality within the next 10 years. But the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) wants to stay…..
