An international team of scientists recently published groundbreaking research indicating quantum computers aren’t handicapped by a classical view of time. Grab a cup of coffee, we’ll explain. The researchers set out to determine if quantum computers could be used to overcome one of classical computing’s biggest problems: causal asymmetry. When you watch events unfold, for example, the computer in your head (some folks call it the human brain) starts predicting what’s going to happen next. So if you’re watching a video where an action sequence plays out, you can follow along and make sense of it all. The same sequence,…
