Is Quantum Computing real?

By Julie Sartain – What is quantum computing? One simple definition is that quantum computers use qubits (or quantum bits) to encode information. However, unlike silicon-based computers that use bits which are zeroes or ones, qubits can exist in multiple states simultaneously. In other words, a qubit is a bit of information that has not yet decided whether it wants to be a zero or a one.

In theory, that means that quantum systems can produce simultaneous processing of calculations; in essence, true parallel systems. more>
