Race Not Over Between Classical and Quantum Computers

  title={Race Not Over Between Classical and Quantum Computers},
  author={K. Mccormick},
I n the race to achieve the coveted “advantage” of a quantum computer, those developing quantum algorithms are pitted against each other and against those working on classical algorithms. With each potential claim of such an advantage—the successful calculation on a quantum computer of something that is infeasible on a classical one—scientists have designedmore efficient classical algorithms against which the quantum algorithmsmust then be compared. Now, by exactly that route, Jacob Bulmer of…
