Happy New Year! It’s 2020. By 2040, Quantum Computers Will Be…
4 Predictions for the Most Disruptive Innovations of the Next 20 Years
The prediction ~
+ #2 Within 20 years quantum computers will be as widely used as classical computers.
+ Quantum computing is progressing at a rate that is surprising even those who are building it. Google engineers recently talked about how they have already reached “quantum supremacy”–the point at which quantum computers can exceed the ability of any classical computer. IBM projects three years at most for that same achievement.
+ Quantum computers will not replace all classical computers, but they will become an indispensable part of how we use computers and artificial intelligence in our lives. This will be one of the most radical shifts in the history of science, enabling us to take on problems that classical computers are simply unable to deal with. Quantum computers come as close possible to mimicking the biological world, allowing us to simulate everything from cellular organisms, to human biology, to pharmaceuticals, to the inner workings of the universe.
