Recently, Microsoft has stepped up its efforts to construct functional quantum computers. The idea of designing a computational machine that can potentially be used to handle complex variables has been around since the beginning of the ’80s.
However, at that time the idea of building such a complex machine was not feasible. Traditional computational methods use binary language in order to process information. While traditional computers paint everything in 0 and 1, it has been theorized that quantum computers, which use bits and qubits to process information, cannot distinguish between the two states. This means that the 0 and one states exist simultaneously within the system.
Although this type of system may look that it could outclass even the most powerful supercomputer in the world, it has many limitations. These qubits are in a state of quantum flux, meaning that they are quite fragile and can be offset by any external stimuli.
