A Quantum Leap in Computing
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tech/quant ... uting.html
Imagine a futuristic computer so powerful that it could quickly solve problems that even a supercomputer of today would need billions of years to grapple with. While it doesn't exist yet, prototypes of such a magical machine are currently in operation at MIT, sorting out puzzles of quantum physics that no ordinary computer could handle. In this interview, MIT mechanical engineer Seth Lloyd, who helped establish the field of quantum computing, describes its revolutionary potential.
