The pace of computing which Intel has maintained for half a century by now is doubling the compute power every two years. This is known as the Moore’s law. This has led to the computers of today and also the supercomputers which are treated as ultimate computing giants. This computing power is able to handle big data & IT giants in their global operations & near real time dynamic analysis. These conventional computers still fail to provide solutions to huge data issues unimaginable today. The answer lies in Quantum Computing.
Commercially available best known processors are 15 core Zion Ivy with 4.3 billion transistors & Nvidia with more than 7 billion. These processors fail to solve humungous problems of the day. Encryption can be one example. In 1980, Russian German mathematician Yuri Mining proposed the idea of quantum computing. A year later eminent physicist Richard Feynman presented a logical quantum computer model. The conventional computer the transistors deal with binary language , in a quantum computing scenario it is through a quantum bit ie so called qubit.
It provides us with incredible new possibilities for the effective processing of databases beyond what we could have ever imagined. Based on qubits, it operates on two key principles of quantum physics superposition and entanglement. Using these principles it would be able to solve difficult problems that are intractable using the conventional computer systems. With all the hype behind quantum computing, it is still in a nascent stage what classical computing was in the ‘50s. It has the potential to revolutionize computing.
Pathbreaking, painstaking, arduous & long term research has always decided the course of human development, quantum computing has that potential. Seeing this potential IBM, Google, Microsoft and Intel have fully locked in, in this research. D Wave declares itself as a quantum computing company & is pioneering this research. We can’t afford missing out on this quantum leap.
QUANTUM COMPUTING IS THE MOST CHALLENGING DIGITAL FRONTIER.
