New language helps quantum coders build killer apps – news article in New Scientist

This week I wrote a news article for the New Scientist about a new programming language called Quipper, designed for writing software for quantum computers. It’s my first news article in three years, and fortunately no other news agencies had picked it up so the turn-around could be slower than for most news items (I imagine). The quantum info scientists I spoke to (Peter Selinger, Bob Coecke and Thorsten Altenkirch) were all brilliantly helpful, speaking on the phone to me with little or no notice.  🙂
