Quantum Computing: Assessing the potential for the next decade

Quantum computing has long been heralded as the next great step in computing, harnessing the exotic behaviour of the sub-atomic world to perform feats that would simply not be possible with current computer architectures to solve problems that would otherwise take an enormous amount of time and compute power to process.

But quantum computing has been a long time coming; it has been several decades since physicists realised that quantum phenomena could be used to perform calculations and process information. This is because there have been major technical challenges to overcome in order to build a working device capable of performing quantum operations, not to mention scaling these up to a level where they can actually be used to solve real-world problems.

The report looks at possible ‘real world’ applications for quantum computing, the opportunities and challenges facing the market, and examples of current supplier offerings.
