So … What If Aliens’ Quantum Computers Explain Dark Energy? – WIRED

At present there is no solution to the dark energy problem. Prominent physicists like Ed Witten have called it the greatest embarrassment of theoretical physics. It has forced physicists back to the drawing board—all the way back to the foundations of quantum mechanics and general relativity. And for me and Jaron Lanier, that meant quantum computers.

New Algorithm may Lead to More Efficient, Faster Quantum Computers – AZoQuantum

Quantum computing is taking a new leap forward due to research done in collaboration between University of Helsinki, Aalto University, University of Turku, and IBM Research Europe-Zurich. The team of researchers have proposed a scheme to reduce the number of calculations needed to read out data stored in the state of a quantum processor. This, in turn, will make quantum computers more efficien…….
