Quantum computers are the future, says Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

And he has put Microsoft’s money where his mouth is, making quantum computing one of the three pillars of Microsoft’s strategy going forward.

Along with AI and mixed/augmented reality, it’s an area where Nadella believes that Microsoft can make a significant impact, and where it can differentiate itself from its competition.But building a quantum computer is hard. Microsoft’s current progress is the result of more than 20 years of research investment, working with universities around the world, mixing pure physics with computer science, and turning experimental ideas into products.

There’s a lot of ambition here, with the eventual aim of building scalable quantum computers that anyone can use.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
