One year ago, Amigobulls coveredabout the research arm of Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT), Microsoft Research, as a top-class research organization that, among other pursuits, is exploring quantum computing.
Quantum computers, which process information encoded in quantum bits – qubits – that can be in a quantum superposition of zero and one states, could process information much faster than today’s computers by exploiting subtle quantum phenomena such as quantum entanglement. Here’s why Microsoft stock may make aquantum jump in the long term due to its big bet on scalable quantum computers.
The theoretical peak performance of quantum computers increases very fast with the number of qubits – which justifies the interest of tech giants and funding agencies – but so does the engineering challenge of building practical, operational,high-performance quantum processors. Scalable quantum computing systems, where the number of processing qubits can be increased without running into insurmountable difficulties, are the Holy Grail of quantum computing.
