Where will quantum computing take us?

Abstract:
Two announcements in the past fortnight have claimed to be giant leaps towards quantum computing.

First, scientists in Australia said they had created the world's smallest transistor and the first to be made by deliberately placing individual atoms.

Then this week, researchers from the University of Cambridge, in collaboration with Toshiba, revealed they had invented an Entangled Light Emitting Diode in another progression towards the supercomputers of the future.

IT PRO spoke to researcher Dr Andrew Shields, who leads the Quantum Information Group at the Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratory, about where quantum computing will take us.
