Quantum computing is computing using quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement. A quantum computer is a device that performs quantum computing. They are different from binary digital electronic computers based on transistors. Whereas common digital computing requires that the data be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1), quantum computation uses quantum bits, which can be in superpositions of states. A quantum Turing machine is a theoretical model of such a computer, and is also known as the universal quantum computer. — Wikipedia

A machine learning technique rapidly rediscovered rules governing catalysts that took humans years of difficult calculations to reveal -- and even explained a deviation. The team that developed the technique believes other researchers will be able to use it to make faster progress in designing materials for a variety of purposes.

To kill a quasiparticle: A quantum whodunit
on September 28, 2020 at 1:37 pm
Quasiparticles die young, lasting far, far less than a second. Why? A new Monash University study finds a culprit beyond the usual suspect (decay into lower energy states). Identification of the new villain--many-body dephasing--may be key to controlling quantum effects such as superconductivity and superfluidity.
