Taming the Quantum World
In recent years physicists have been developing a new type of computer; the quantum computer. It will revolutionize computer technology by harnessing the mysterious quantum physics.
Quantum computers will be able to generate virtual realities that could become a vehicle for addressing critical issues such as global warming and what the ultimate fate of the universe will be.
The quantum computer utilizes the strange quantum phenomena superposition and entanglement. These are phenomena that Danish physicist Niels Bohr discussed with Albert Einstein with much fervour.
But even for those two these phenomena were hard to grasp – because quantum physics flies in the face of common sense.
