“Infinity Machines: Will Quantum Computers Live up to the Hype?”

Time Magazine called quantum computers “infinity machines.”* This new technology could revolutionize the way we design drugs, protect information, and identify patterns in data, but building a sufficiently large device has proved difficult. We will discuss the potential (and potential pitfalls) of quantum computing from both a hardware and software perspective.
