The age of the qubit
Quantum mechanics describes how physical systems behave, usually at the smallest scales.
Physicists and information scientists are now studying and harnessing the deepest aspects of that behaviour to create radically new ways of communicating and processing information that are extremely powerful.
The investigations are leading to insights into the quantum world that promise to stimulate major advances in science and technology, and could ultimately influence how we perceive reality.
