I'd guess that your decade is very optimistic. Placing 1 million Cesium atoms on 1mm pitch? Not exactly a stepping stone to mass manufacturing!

These researchers have put together a whole portfolio of quantum computing components, and are finally starting to put the pieces together. However it will likely be a decade before they iron out all the kinks.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
