Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution with AI and Quantum Computing

Excerpts and salient points ~

+  On the other hand, quantum computing is a promising technology that can escalate  AI’s evolution even further. Quantum computers perform a type of computing that is different from binary digital electronic computers, which are based on transistors. Common digital computing uses data encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1). Quantum computation, on the other hand, uses quantum bits, which can be in superpositions of states. This enables them to be way faster and capable to deal with extreme volumes of complex data, thus eventually becoming able to perform massive simulations; like the ones undertaken by physicists at CERN’s Hadron collider.

+  Quantum computing is expected to evolve even more in the near future; something that is badly needed, because the quantity of data we produce is escalating at exponential rate. This means that we will also need even more powerful computers to work out what to do with those gigantic quantities of data.

+  Quantum computing and Neuromorphic [c]hips are expected to impact to ever greater heights the 2 most promising areas of AI fostering the 4IR: machine learning and deep learning.
