As big strides were being made in many science fields in the 1970s and 80s, faster computation for solving problems in molecular biology, semiconductor technology, aeronautics, particle physics, etc., was at the forefront of research. Parallel and super-computers were introduced, which enabled problems of a higher level of complexity to be solved. At about the same time, Nobel-laureate physicist Richard Feynman launched what seemed at the time a wild idea; to build a computer based on quantum physics concepts such as superposition and entanglement [1]. The outrageousness of his ideas is documented in the book 'Surely, You're Joking, Mr. Feynman' [2].
