Quantum Computing

The newest type of digital technology is quantum computing, which is defined as ”the area of study focused on developing computer technology based on the principles of quantum theory, which explains the nature and behavior of energy and matter on the quantum (atomic and subatomic) level” (TechTarget).

Here are two excellent IBM educational videos that explain quantum computing:

The Basics of Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing Explained on 5 Levels.

So far IBM Research has developed 3 Q quantum supercomputers. IBM allows scientists and others to run difficult algorithms to solve complex equations on their Q’s.

Last year, Google teamed up with NASA to build a 72 qubit chip that supersedes IBM Q.

Digital Technology has definitely far exceeded beyond binary language of 0’s and 1’s used on classic computers. Now with quantum computing I am left wondering what we will we built next?
