Forget Moore’s Law — Quantum Computers Are Improving According to a Spooky ‘Doubly Exponential Rate’


Quantum computing is being hailed as a revolution in the digital realm. That’s because of the way these computers store information, in itsy-bitsy particles that follow the strange rules of the quantum world. The result can be incredibly powerful and fast processing. For instance, while traditional computers store all data as 1s or 0s, quantum bits of data can exist in multiple different states at the same time, meaning that more data can be kept in fewer bits, in this case qubits, and way more calculations can be processed in a flash.
