Scientists are working toward building the next evolution of computers: quantum computers. And recently, a team of researchers in the Netherlands made another step toward that future after they successfully sent quantum data to three locations in a network.
That development could lead to the creation of a quantum internet, an essential part of any future attempt to build quantum computing networks.
Cade Metz, a technology correspondent for The New York Times, wrote about this recent development.
Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams spoke with Metz about quantum computing, what makes the concept different from today’s computers and why this latest development with
