Physicists Finally Find a Problem That Only Quantum Computers Can Do

Quantum computers are poised to become computational superpowers, but researchers have long sought a viable problem that confers a quantum advantage — something only a quantum computer can solve. Only then, they argue, will the technology finally be seen as essential. Even after decades, they’re still looking. “Part of the reason it’s challenging is because classical computers are pretty good at a...
