The development of quantum technology is one of the main occupations in researcher’s plans. David Gosset from the Institute for Quantum Computing, Robert Konig, professor for the theory of complex quantum systems at the TUM and Sergey Bravyi from IBM are working together to develop more in this field.
So what is the difference between a conventional computer and a quantum computer?
Well, the computers we know run on the binary numbers 0 and 1, which have the role in mathematical operations. A microscopic point on a microchip is the conventional memory of a conventional computer and it can determine if the smallest unit of information is 0 or 1. It usually performs operations slower and separately.
On the other hand, a quantum computer’s bit can be simultaneously 0 and 1 because it follows the laws of quantum physics which say that electrons can be present in multiple places at the same time. A quantum bit is also called qubits. A quantum computer runs and has the ability to solve bugs at a faster rate.
David Gosset, Robert Konig and Sergey Bravyi have built up a quantum circuit to prove furthermore the advantages of a quantum computer. The circuit is able to solve algebraic that are pretty hard to and performs a limited number of tasks in each qubit.
Why the quantum algorithm is better than any classical circuit?
The quantum algorithm achieves the nonlocality of quantum physics. The advantages of these quantum computers have not been totally proved but the evidence point in the right way. But it is fair to say that there is a possibility that the solution to solve these problems has just been found for conventional computers.
‘Our result shows that quantum information processing really dies to provide benefits, without having to rely on unproven complexity theoretic conjectures’ Robert Konig said about the new results of their research.
The quantum circuit has a simple structure and is showing characteristics of being a candidate for a future experimental realization of quantum algorithms.
