Modern computers continue to reach the limits of their processing power, quantum computing is starting to offer hope for solving computationally intensive problems that are intractable for today’s classical computers.
Quantum computers are devices capable of storing and manipulating information stored as quantum states of matter. Quantum computing is based on the principles of quantum physics in which particles, when cooled to almost -460 Fahrenheit, can represent either a zero or a one simultaneously. These quantum bits, called qubits, can therefore perform operations on many values in parallel whereas a single conventional computer typically must execute these operations sequentially.
