Researchers are fabricating quantum processors powerful enough to execute small instances of quantum algorithms. Scalability concerns are motivating distributed-memory multicomputer architectures, and experimental efforts have demonstrated some of the building blocks for such a design. Numberous systems are emerging with the goal of enabling local and distributed quantum computing.
