Quantum computing with superconducting qubits

#technology #systems #data #ChatGPT #LLMS

What is a quantum computer, and what might it be useful for? I’ll describe how a quantum computer, based on superconducting qubits, works. I’ll also describe fault-tolerant quantum computing (FTQC), and the applications where a quantum computer might vastly outperform even the largest high-performance computing facility. What might such a “utility-scale” quantum computer look like, and how big would it be to solve problems intractable on today’s machines?
