With UNSW's breakthroughs in quantum computing, Australia has been given a second chance to lead a computer revolution. The question is, will we take it, or let it slip from our grasp? writes Mark Hoffman.

2015

From quantum qubits to research role models, 2015 was a year of outstanding achievements.

Australian engineers have proven – with the highest score ever obtained – that a quantum version of computer code can be written and manipulated using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip, removing any doubt silicon can be the foundation for a powerful quantum computer.
