This latest post approaches Quantum Computing from a philosophical perspective. It’s an aspect of this field that originally gripped my attention and which underlies much of why quantum mechanics conjures such non-intuitive conclusions.
Those who invest in the winners will enjoy significant outsized financial gains, and those who back the companies that do not survive, will lick their wounds. But as an industry, the race is on, the potential rewards are massive, and the clock is ticking. I sure hope that whoever wins the race uses the power to do good in the world.
Quantum Computers will transform the way we use computers by massively accelerating certain computations and, more importantly, by enabling a wholly new form of computing.
I’ve curated this list to provide a broad set of definitions that should help frame the Quantum Computing (QC) potential, and for ease of reference as you come across terms where a definitional reminder would be helpful.
I’ve covered some key aspects of Quantum Computing in prior posts and thought it would be helpful to synthesize and consolidate some of the fundamental properties of Quantum Computing to provide a bigger picture of the promise and potential of the industry
