Reporting on the Future—Now

From a Times Insider column by Emmett Lindner headlined “Reporting on the Future, Now”:

In labs across the world, scientists are developing the power of quantum mechanics, a field of physics that behaves unlike anything we experience in our everyday lives. In 2019, Google announced that its quantum computer had achieved “quantum supremacy,” which could allow new kinds of computers to perform calculations at what were once unimaginable speeds. Other companies and research labs are exploring techniques like quantum teleportation, which sends data between locations without moving the matter that holds it — a concept that Albert Einstein had deemed impossible.
