Quantum computers can complete certain tasks millions of times as fast as your laptop.
Quantum’s unique ability to crunch stacks of data is already optimizing the routes of thousands of fuel tankers traversing the globe
It also promises to supercharge artificial intelligence, with the power to better train algorithms
The global quantum-computing industry is projected to grow from $412 million in 2020 to $8.6 billion in 2027.
Tech giants from Google to Amazon and Alibaba are racing to dominate this space.
Traditional computers rely on binary digits 1s and 0s- to process information, the “qubits” that underpin quantum computing are tiny subatomic particles.
Complex problems that currently take the most powerful supercomputer several years could potentially be solved in seconds.
However Quantum's problem-solving capacity will soon render all existing cryptography obsolete.
IBM has emerged in recent years as the industry leader for Quantum Computers
In November, IBM unveiled its new 433-qubit Osprey chip—the world’s most powerful quantum processor.
IBM has more than 20 quantum computers available on its open-source quantum tool kit Qiskit, which has been downloaded more than 450,000 times to date.
Quantum is at the top of the global security agenda. To date, 17 countries have national quantum strategies and four more are developing them.
