    1. Where a classical bit in today’s computers carries out a series of logical operations starting from one of either two states, 0 or 1, a qubit can exist in a superposition of both states. While in this delicate in-between state, a qubit should be able to simultaneously communicate with many other qubits and process multiple streams of information at a time, to quickly solve problems that would take classical computers years to process.

      clear explanation of superposition

    2. MIT physicists have discovered a new quantum bit, or “qubit,” in the form of vibrating pairs of atoms known as fermions.

      New qubit in vibrating pairs of atoms - fermions.

    1. Entanglement forging could markedly expand the computational power of quantum systems

      advantage of entanglement forging: expand the computational power of quantum systems (and using less qubits)

    2. Entanglement forging, it turns out, involves the use of a classical computer to capture quantum correlations and effectively split the problem in half, making it possible to separate the 10 spin-orbitals of the into two groups of five that could be processed separately. This doubles the size of the system that can be simulated on quantum hardware.

      "entanglement forging" - combining quantum and classical "resources"
