Quantum computing 101

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.

How do quantum computers operate?

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.

Accessing the power of quantum computing

KPMG’s Quantum Computing 101 thought leadership brief quickly answers seven questions that corporate executives are asking about the emerging field of quantum computing:

  • What is a quantum computer?
  • Can my business get a quantum computer?
  • Are there business applications of quantum computers?
  • What are potential use cases for quantum computing?
  • Who is leading the way in quantum computing?
  • What knowledge and skills will be required to leverage quantum computers?
  • How can my company prepare to start leveraging quantum technology?
