In 1994, Peter Shor invented a fast quantum algorithm
for factoring numbers.
With only a five superconducting quantum bit processor, the quantum algorithm
consistently identified the sequence in up to a 100-fold fewer computational steps and was more tolerant of noise than the classical (non-quantum) algorithm.
According to the development of the algorithm, it is generally believed that there has not been any sub-exponential quantum algorithm
that can solve the computational variants of [gamma]-SVP or [gamma]-Ideal-SVP in the worst case, for any [gamma] that is polynomial in the dimension.
The massive processing capabilities found in Quantum computers will challenge our current beliefs around complexity and security," said Michael Brown, CTO at ISARA Corporation, posing the case for 'Quantum safe cryptography', which is resistant to quantum algorithm
A good example of this is giving users the ability to tune the quantum algorithm
to improve application performance.
An example of an optical circuit for the 4-bit Deutsch-Jozsa quantum algorithm
was presented, where for each quantum computation, the answer to the Deutsch-Jozsa problem is given by a single-photon detection.
Shor  proposed the first quantum algorithm
based on the quantum concurrent computation in 1994 and used it to solve the large prime factorization.
So Troyer and his colleagues set up a speed test between a quantum algorithm
running on a D-Wave Two computer (owned by Lockheed Martin) at the University of Southern California and a classical version of the same algorithm running on a traditional computer.
Traditionally, a quantum algorithm
is implemented on a register of qubits by actively manipulating the qubits according to a set of desired operations.
A quantum algorithm
consists of a sequence of operations on a register, to transform it into a state which, when measured, yields the desired result with high probability.
One chip used a quantum algorithm
to find the prime factors of 15.
