June 29, 2017 Kip Pettigrew

Quantum computing research is an enormously expensive endeavor. A functional quantum computer would resemble computing hardware of the 1950s and 60s — huge installations with enormous power needs, fixed locations, and high operating costs. The costs involved with research, of course, are far greater when you factor in everything from top-tier physicists and technicians to facility costs to test equipment.
