At its Ignite event in Orlando, Microsoft revealed that it is making progress toward creating a programming language for quantum computing. The advances come from the efforts of Michael Freedman, a mathematician who works in Microsoft's theoretical research group. He works in a field called topology and is helping the company create the first topological qubit.

“We’re seeing the potential foundation for a new, revolutionary technology,” said Todd Holmdahl, the Microsoft corporate vice president in charge of the quantum effort. “You know, I get goosebumps.”

Experts say that quantum computing could eventually solve mankind's toughest problems like hunger and disease, accomplishing in minutes calculations that could otherwise take a lifetime.
