Distributed computing is a model in which components of a software system are shared among multiple computers to improve efficiency and performance. You might think that if we have classical distributed computing, there must also be something like distributed quantum computing. But what could we possibly mean with this? And does it make sense at all? In this video, professor Stephanie Wehner will look into these questions.
In the video Stephanie refers to qubits traveling from one quantum computer to another. Can you name a simple algorithm that allows you to do this?
