A new approach to quantum information processing at room temperatures

Researchers propose novel nanochips from atomically thin materials to make quantum computing possible

In October 2019, Google announced that their quantum processor achieved a computation in 200 seconds, which they claim would take even the most advanced supercomputers today approximately 10,000 years. While IBM has challenged this claim, such drastic changes in computational capabilities are indeed possible due to a fundamentally new technology called quantum computers.
