Applications for Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing Risk to Encryption (Cybersecurity)

Quantum computing is a new and emerging technology that threatens to break the encryption algorithms used in cybersecurity. Currently, the world’s most advanced computers are not capable of deciphering the mathematical algorithms used to protect sensitive data and communications. It could take thousands or even millions of years before the current technology breaks encrypted data.

A Sobering Reminder of Where We Currently Stand

[R]eluctance to accept that practical quantum computing has arrived presumably stems from the question of whether it can do anything truly useful yet. Sure, one can construct a problem that is very hard for a classical device but ideally suited to a quantum computer and then demonstrate that only a few dozen qubits may be enough to achieve ‘supremacy’. But how helpful is that in the proverbial real world?
