Nanotech and QC's
Since the US government has promised to pour $4 billion into nanotechnology research, it's important to ask: What is the intersection between nanotechnology and quantum computing, if any?
The potential quantum computing method most often considered part of nano-tecnhnology is quantum dots. So perhaps, with part of $4 billion behind it, quantum dot quantum computing will mature faster than the other quantum computing technologies. And maybe to get a piece of the $4 billion pie, quantum algorithm researchers should rename their work nano-technology algorithms. Nanorithms? Just a thought.
