The evolution from classical to quantum information technology will be greatly facilitated by the formulation of incremental approaches to making the transition. This is a far greater challenge than might seem apparent, as today we know only of completely classical and fully quantum-mechanical models as practically sensible computing paradigms and the jump to fully-quantum hardware implementations lies well beyond our current technological capabilities. There is not even a convincing road map for getting there.

Determining proper sensitivity to incoming signals is important to all regulated biological systems, but is especially crucial for responses that involve an irreversible decision. Using Xenopus oocytes maturation as an example, we illustrate how entangled feedback architectures can be used to integrate the multiple signals needed to make the switchlike, irreversible transition from interphase to meiosis. We also discuss how the specific topologies of these feedback loops modulate the switching threshold as a function of the progesterone input.
