Microsoft continues to invest in quantum computing

Neowin points out that Microsoft continues to fund projects that aim to crack the quantum computing nut. One of Microsoft's recent hires is Douglas Carmean, who previously worked at Intel. He will be focusing at quantum computing at his new job at Microsoft.
Carmean led the design of multiple Intel processors and will be joining Microsoft to help tackle the toughest challenges in the computing world. The benefits of creating a quantum computer is that it will be significantly more powerful than modern PC designs and any company who can make the breakthrough will not only be rewarded financially but will also have a leg up in software development too.

Microsoft's approach to quantum computing is based on "topological quantum computing" which is the ability to control the motions of pairs of subatomic particles as they wind around one another. It's a topic that requires you to put down what you know about computers and begin to understand what happens at the atom level, to grasp what scientists are trying to do.
