MIT Technology Review: Microsoft has been researching quantum computing for several years but has just started talking about its work, says Peter Lee, head of Microsoft Research, because "now the physics community takes us seriously." The company has a dedicated research lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and has supported other labs around the world with grants and tools. According to Lee, the company is focusing its efforts on a topological qubit, which it believes will be a much more robust qubit than those developed by other researchers. After eight years of theoretical work and promising early testing, the company is now building a prototype.
