Autonomous quantum error correction method greatly increases qubit coherence times "(—It might be said that the most difficult part of building a quantum computer is not figuring out how to make it compute, but rather finding a way to deal with all of the errors that it inevitably makes. Errors arise because of the constant interaction between the qubits and their environment, which can result in photon loss, which in turn causes the qubits to randomly flip to an incorrect state."
Ummm...sure. I'll pretend I understand what that means. :) ‎- Hey, it's CAJ!
