Three Truths and the Advent of Hybrid Quantum Computing
Excerpts and salient points ~
+ Quantum-classical hybrid is the use of both classical and quantum resources to solve problems. A hybrid approach allows developers to exploit the powers of both, today, and reap the benefits of the ongoing acceleration in quantum-computer development tomorrow. As the size of the processors grow, quantum computers promise to provide unrivaled performance at some types of tasks, such as solving certain hard optimization problems.
+ Truth #1: Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, quantum applications will always and only be hybrid.
“Quantum applications will always and only be hybrid.”
+ Truth #2: Customers (you!) value results above all, and it is results that provide technology value, not the other way around
+ Truth #3: There is an important role for quantum computing that has been left vacant by classical systems.
