A Quantum Leap For Computing
With every passing year, computers are becoming increasingly powerful and have now reached a point where they have more power and potential than we actually have any use for. The latest IBM computers, developed in conjunction with Google and Harvard, could be able actually to design new molecules. The practical effects of this kind of technology are incredible; for example, chemists could create stronger proteins for medical use or physicists could produce more efficient fuels. IBM has already used a quantum computer to model a small atom and could be capable of so much more over the next decade.
