How quantum technology is bound to change the world, putting a quantum spin on Einstein’s twin paradox and more in this week’s Quantum Digest.

Spotlight Story: 

“No, quantum computing did not come of age with Google’s Sycamore, a 53-qubit computer solving in 200 seconds a problem that would take even a supercomputer 10,000 years. Instead, it is the first step, showing that a functional computation can be done with a quantum computer, and it does indeed solve a special class of problems much faster than conventional computers. This is not that quantum computers have now superseded classical computers. The hype of quantum supremacy is misleading as it is based on a very narrow definition quantum supremacy; quantum supremacy is one quantum computer beating all classical computers for one specially constructed task.”
