Quantum computers can solve a linear algebra problem faster than classical computers, according to a new study published in Science. The finding proves that constant-depth quantum circuits are more powerful than their classical counterparts, and provides a new sense of how quantum technology will be a key to more powerful computing.
On June 28, 2018, the Government of Italy announced the appointment of Michele Mosca as a Knight of the Order of Merit for his significant contributions in quantum computing and cybersecurity, including research, training, outreach and commercialization efforts.
