Chances are you've heard of quantum computers and that they're going to change. Quantum computers have the potential to completely change how we use technology of the future. The computational power is off the chart,s what's about to happen with quantum computing is gonna make the past look incredibly slow
Quantum computers are new kinds of machines that promise an exponential growth spurt and processing power capable of tackling problems our computers today can't solve. While an encryption busting global problem solving quantum computer doesn't exist just yet, the field has gained some serious momentum we've reached a point where it's pretty clear that those performance numbers are good enough now.
You can build a real product a real piece of technology out of this idea and when that when that threshold got crossed people started to place their bets. Tech giants like IBM and Google and startups like Righetti computing are all in something of a scientific race to build the first universal quantum computer. But to fully understand what makes a quantum computer so uniquely powerful you'll need to know a bit of quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics is the field that describes the simplest things around us individual electrons or atoms or you know particles of light like photons. And the fascinating thing is when you look at these very simple systems they don't really obey the same rules that that the world around us does.
