Qudits

What’s a qudit?  According to IEEE Spectrum, a qudit can assume 10 different states — whereas a bit of computer memory has just 2 states.  “Now scientists have for the first time created a microchip that can generate two entangled qudits each with 10 states, for 100 dimensions total…”  This could be a new path to powerful quantum computing, and that’s NEWWorthy.
