Microsoft Developing a Quantum Computing Language

Tuesday Sep 26th 2017 by Developer.com Staff

The quantum computing project could lead to huge advances in artificial intelligence.

At its Ignite event in Orlando, Microsoft revealed that it is making progress toward creating a programming language for quantum computing. The advances come from the efforts of Michael Freedman, a mathematician who works in Microsoft's theoretical research group. He works in a field called topology and is helping the company create the first topological qubit.

“We’re seeing the potential foundation for a new, revolutionary technology,” said Todd Holmdahl, the Microsoft corporate vice president in charge of the quantum effort. “You know, I get goosebumps.”

Experts say that quantum computing could eventually solve mankind's toughest problems like hunger and disease, accomplishing in minutes calculations that could otherwise take a lifetime.
