As classical information technology approaches limits of size and functionality, practitioners are searching for new paradigms for the distribution and processing of information. Our goal in this Introduction is to provide a broad view of the beginning of a new era in information technology, an era of quantum information, where previously underutilized quantum effects, such as quantum superposition and entanglement, are employed as resources for information encoding and processing. The ability… CONTINUE READING
