When I told some of my friends in the classical computing industry that I was starting up this web site, I received a bunch of questions. Many had not even heard of quantum computing and the remainder had only vaguely recalled seeing some news articles on it. None of them understood what the advantages were so I have developed the following ten quick points to give them an understanding at the basic level and why quantum computing will become important. Let me know what you think!
- There are some very important problems that can never be solved using classical computing, but could be solved using quantum computing.
- The secret to quantum computing lies in leveraging the quantum mechanical principles of superposition and entanglement.
- There are multiple technical approaches being developed, but we don’t know yet which ones will win out.
