Today, we get an answer thanks to the work of Simon Devitt… who has built an online game that has the potential to play a crucial role in the future of quantum programming. Not only can the game help humans create better programs, but it could also help a new generation of artificial intelligence machines take on the task themselves.
… a new device they’ve created that allows quantum information to pass from one microchip of the quantum computer, to another using electric fields instead of fiber optic cables. This would allow for connection speeds between the microchips that are up to 100,000 times faster than those currently achievable using fiber optics.
Instead, a group of physicists argue we should take a page from the sneakernet, aka transferring data on physical disks and drives. Massive container ships could cross our oceans carrying diamond-based hard drives, which are especially stable.

(Some of) The Most Brilliant People in the World
Our long term goal is to enable the scaling of computers that enviably contribute to solving some of humanity’s hardest problems in medicine and materials. We do fundamental scientific research into the nature of error correction in quantum systems, and we have made major breakthroughs in hardware, software, and algorithms rather than just incremental improvements. We are looking for exceptional people to join us in that mission. We have positions open for specialties that include theoretical and experimental quantum physics, quantum error correction, and quantum algorithms.
