Bad memory? Perhaps quantum computers can help. Scientists learned years ago they can use electrons as super microprocessors under very specialised conditions. Construction of such machines is still impractical, but that hasn't stopped Luv Grover from writing quantum "software."
A researcher at the famed Bell Labs, Grover Tuesday announced hed designed a program that could allow a quantum computer to find things in a database even if researchers have only a vague notion of what theyre looking for.
