Quantum Computing

Post by Leo » Fri Apr 16, 2021 7:00 pm

I feel fortunate to be on a site with a lot of smart people. Can someone give me some basics about Quantum Computing? Real basic. So there is a tie in to chess, what could it do for computer chess?

It won't be able to do anything for computer chess.

But we have an ongoing challenge:
