Would a quantum computer give great answers? Or lie to cover its ignorance.

New research suggests you'd never be able to tell the difference

That doesn't mean it's not valid on the subatomic scale or that discovering a particle can lie so convincingly a human can't catch it won't have a big impact on the development of quantum computers, which may end up being as much more powerful than regular computers as the atom bomb was compared to the hundreds of thousands of bombs dropped over Europe during WWII.

It would be nice to know, though, if quantum computing lets us make breakthroughs in space travel or time travel or really, really good tax preparation that doesn't give us a headache, that the quantum computer we're relying on for an accurate course to Mars, for example, knows what it's talking about and isn't just making up the answers.
