Quantum theory and you: Curated collection traces ongoing evolution of computing power

August 15, 2023

“From DOS to Qiskit: Turning Entanglement into Quantum Computation”—the library’s 2023–2024 Model Research Collection—considers the “quantum leaps” that have occurred in our ability to process information, thanks to the rapid advances in the field of quantum theory since the early twentieth century.

Curator Florian Carle, manager of the Yale Quantum Institute, has selected materials that track the novel ways humans have applied quantum theory—from the classical computers that ran DOS software to today’s supercomputers that run Qiskit. The collection also makes some playful excursions into the corners of pre-quantum computing technology.
