The content of the upcoming coding game is always our best kept secret until the start of the event. Only our game developers know what it is about. But seeing that the question keeps coming, we decided to reveal at least some bits and pieces of the topic. Have fun reading!
Today, we are used to sending also highly confidential data via public networks, i.e. the Internet. However, we have seen that due to Quantum Computing our safely encrypted data connections will not be guaranteed to be safe in some future.
You have read about Grover’s algorithm that gives us a quadratic speedup for search in unsorted data sets or more generally for NP-hard problems. But this is, of course, not the only application.
In the last story, we explored how quantum physics can be exploited to have Qubits and also Quantum Gates. Now, let’s see what we can do with that.
In late 2019 it was hard to not stumble upon Quantum Computing. But, let’s quickly recap what has been happening a few months ago. Google announced it has achieved “Quantum Supremacy”, claiming ...
