### Quantum Supremacy Is Coming: Here’s What You Should Know

Researchers are getting close to building a quantum computer that can perform tasks a classical computer can’t. Here’s what the milestone will mean.

### How to Turn a Quantum Computer Into the Ultimate Randomness Generator

Pure, verifiable randomness is hard to come by. Two proposals show how to make quantum computers into randomness factories.

### A New Law to Describe Quantum Computing’s Rise?

Neven’s law states that quantum computers are improving at a “doubly exponential” rate. If it holds, quantum supremacy is around the corner.

### Computer Scientists Expand the Frontier of Verifiable Knowledge

The universe of problems that a computer can check has grown. The researchers’ secret ingredient? Quantum entanglement.

### A New Approach to Multiplication Opens the Door to Better Quantum Computers

Quantum computers can’t selectively forget information. A new algorithm for multiplication shows a way around that problem.

### Quantum Machine Appears to Defy Universe’s Push for Disorder

One of the first quantum simulators has produced a puzzling phenomenon: a row of atoms that repeatedly pops back into place.

### How Space and Time Could Be a Quantum Error-Correcting Code

The same codes needed to thwart errors in quantum computers may also give the fabric of space-time its intrinsic robustness.

### Milestone Experiment Proves Quantum Communication Really Is Faster

In a Paris lab, researchers have shown for the first time that quantum methods of transmitting information are superior to classical ones.

### Graduate Student Solves Quantum Verification Problem

Urmila Mahadev spent eight years in graduate school solving one of the most basic questions in quantum computation: How do you know whether a quantum computer has done anything quantum at all?
