In addition to his significant contributions in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics Dr. Feynman is credited with pioneering the field of quantum computing and introducing the concept of nanotechnology. Dr. Feynman also envisioned the hyper-cube architecture, a 12-D connection scheme for 4,096 chips for the Connection Machine while at Thinking Machines.
