Government co-ordinating local industry
Taiwan's Ministry of Science and Technology wants to pool the R&D resources of the domestic semiconductor sector to develop quantum components fabrication processes, local potentially dead or alive cats to promote the progress of quantum computing, communication and algorithm technologies, and nurture related R&D engineers.
Who needs dead cats when you have a lot of sheep?
Aussie boffins, squatting in the outback, have come up with a new form of quantum computer which does not involve cats and will be dramatically easier and cheaper to produce.
Doubles the number of qubits without increasing the number of cats
D-Wave Systems, which claims to make the world’s first quantum computer, today announced details of its most advanced quantum computing system, featuring a new 2000-qubit processor and no extra potentually dead or alive cats.
