In science:

The study of computational devices based upon quantum mechanics is known as quantum computation.
Implementing the quantum random walk
Mainly motivated by the idea that a computational device based on quantum mechanics might be (possibly exponentially) more powerful than a classical one , great effort has been done to investigate new quantum algorithms and, more importantly, to experimentally construct a universal quantum computer.
Experimental Implementation of the Quantum Random-Walk Algorithm
Physical computing devices and ‘information appliances,’ computer-enhanced devices dedicated to a restricted suite of information-oriented tasks, are no longer a vision, but rather a reality .
A Connection-Centric Survey of Recommender Systems Research
Testing the feasibility of such technique is not enough, as one cannot simply scale a system made of point-like magnets to a large device using extended magnets, such as the one needed for a Virgo SA: the dipole approximation is no more valid to compute the magnetic force.
Feasibility of a magnetic suspension for second generation Gravitational Wave interferometers
It is argued that this model is a theoretical prototype of a robust and scalable quantum computing device.
