Summary

Told from a government insider's point of view, this volume is the fascinating story of the quest to develop a quantum computer. Using non-technical language, amusing personal anecdotes, and easy-to-follow analogies, the book leads us from the beginnings of quantum information technology to the present time. Readers will learn how Schrodinger's quantum entanglement represents the power behind the quantum computer, and how quantum cryptography is the remedy to threats posed by the quantum computer. The author begins by explaining why quantum technologies perform better than classical technology, then describes how they will revolutionize our future-from devices for global positioning and remote sensing to stock market predictors.
