From Ars Technica:
The IBM system is, on a very superficial level, similar to D-Wave’s. Both systems use superconducting quantum interference devices as qubits (quantum bits). But the similarity ends there. As IBM emphasizes, its quantum computer is a universal quantum computer—which D-Wave’s is not.
This is a bit super geeky in the weeds kind of stuff that has no direct dental application…yet. However cheap super fast computers in the future will allow us to process the vast amounts of data that will be available regarding our medical dental conditions.
