King Quantum - Vancouver Magazine
Quantum physics is a conundrum for the most brilliant of physicists. Dr. Geordie Rose of D-Wave Systems in Vancouver has taken on science’s most elusive but lofty goal: developing a computer based upon quantum laws, which dictate that particles can exist in two places at the same time.
Excerpt: “Rose sees his technology as a step in the eradication of disease. It is this objective — as lofty as achieving world peace – that inspires many to back D-Wave when logic dictates that such a small company will be, at best, a straggler against the world’s keenest brains and their portly R&D piggy banks.”
