Microsoft Add Libraries to Quantum Development Kit. Microsoft adds further integration with Visual Studio for its Quantum Development Kit. The kit pushes along use of quantum computing for chemistry research and development. “One significant area is computational chemistry, where quantum computers will drive advancements in areas such as drug discovery, development of pigments and dyes and the development of catalysts for industrial processes.” Potential applications stemming from this QDK use are understanding of pollutant breakdown during combustion processes, pulling nitrogen from the atmosphere for fertilizer use, and possibly enabling the elusive carbon capture process. Quantum is coming.
