A pointer to this ABC.com story sent me over to the company's website.
I guess we'll find out February 13th.
Why is this so important? A couple of reasons spring to mind:
- If this is a real product, these goes encryption standards!
- Some meteorologists and climate scientists feel that failures of prediction aren't due to system complexity (chaos), but poor models. Putting bad models on a quantum computer will just turn out bad answers faster. This may encourage better modeling.
