Chilly Future May Await Tomorrow's Computers

Abstract:
A "chill pill" that Slovenian computer scientists recently formulated "could ... allow quantum computers to operate at incredible speeds successfully," says Institute of Physics spokesperson David Reid. A digital "deep freeze" may be the only way to save computers of the future from sizzling speeds that could burn out even the most robust microchips and hard drives. Rapid-fire calculations literally might set fire to computers based on quantum-mechanical principals -- which are the likely successors to today's electronic machines, say scientists who study quantum computing's potential for error.
