Flashback: Feynman urges building a quantum computer
On this day in 1981, at a conference on physics, Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman issued a challenge that was heard around the world—urging scientists to develop a new breed of computers based on quantum physics. Ever since then, scientists have been on a quest to build a universal quantum computer.
IBM Fellow and quantum information pioneer Charles Bennett attended that famed 1981 physics conference and accepted Feynman’s quantum challenge. http://ibm.com/quantumcomputing
