For the first time, an international team of researchers has used a quantum computer to create artificial life—a simulation of living organisms that scientists can use to understand life at the level of whole populations all the way down to cellular interactions.

With the quantum computer, individual living organisms represented at a microscopic level with superconducting qubits were made to “mate,” interact with their environment, and “die” to model some of the major factors that influence evolution.

Yeah, we keep hearing about Quantum Computers will be able to do and then we hear these things. By the time, the Quantum Computer is here, it will be so ubiquitous that no one will bother to mention it.

There's a related game called core wars that fits the battle for life where one form seeks to end another form.
