University’s quantum science strengths harness multidisciplinary talent.
Imagine there are 20 playing cards laying side-by-side and face down on a table in front of you. You know that one of them is the queen of hearts, but you don’t know which one. To find it, you probably would start turning over the cards one by one. A modern-day computer is designed to take the same approach in solving this problem, albeit much faster than a human. But what if you could find the queen of hearts on the first try every time? This is the type of power enabled by quantum computing.
