This Is Your Brain on Quantum Computers

Will we get there?

Some are skeptical about whether quantum computers will be taking over anytime soon. There are many challenges facing experts in the field, such as designing a simple way to control complex systems of qubits. One major obstacle is that qubits are more susceptible to errors, compared to transmitters in classical computers. Another one is creating qubits that can maintain their quantum properties for a long period of time, known as the coherence time. Scott Aaronson, professor at The University of Texas, Austin has listed the main challenges to quantum computing theory.
