Is the title of an article in New Scientist 13 Jul 2013, page 6.
There is a new language ¨Quipper¨, developed from Haskell, and using which the developers are apparently developing killer apps for the first generation of Quantum Computers. vide (arxiv.org/abs/1304.3390).
Our own Juliet Kemp wrote an article in LXF172, page 100 entitled ¨Getting started with Haskell¨.
So now we all where to go to get further, I wonder how long it will be until someone releases Quipper for PI......
As I see it, the computer will control the specialist (laser?) equipment that will carry out the entanglement or other mediations to the various particles in the system in order to enable the quantum computing to take place.
The computer is an intermediary between particles and lasers, and is not, of itself a quantum computer.
Any way, why Haskell? I tho´t he was a rugby player....
