Quantum computing holds the key to digital transformation and new quantum technologies are set to revolutionise the way business and industry operates.
Quantum computing promises to deliver a massive leap forward in data power and processing. First there were bits, bytes, gigabytes and megabytes now it is yottabytes. Across business and industry super computing is driving rapid change that promises to transform production, communication and the everyday experiences of consumers. Even Microsoft founder Bill Gates has admitted: “Innovation is moving at a scarily fast pace.”
As a general rule business and industry does not like radical change because it’s cloaked in uncertainty and costs money but those who embrace innovation and adapt to new technologies have been shown to survive and prosper.
Quantum computing will be one of the core foundations of the future, its greatly increased power and hi-speed properties will lie at the heart of new big data processes and enable the virtual world of the metaverse.
Quantum computing is based on quantum mechanics, the science of atomic structure and function. It uses the ‘qubit’, or quantum bit, which can hold an infinite number of values. Quantum technologies process huge data sets at faster rates than current silicon-based digital computers can. They use electrons or even polarized light that can be interlinked to perform many operations at once. Currently under rapid development these technologies have the power to transform the future.
The volume of data in the world is growing at an unprecedented rate. But data only becomes useful when it can be handled properly; quantum-driven data analytics will help companies to make faster, better and more focused business decisions in a world where the quantity of data is rapidly becoming overwhelming.
Quantum computing will also power the coming metaverse whose all-new virtual worlds will demand massive computing capabilities. Virtual reality, artificial intelligence, digital twins, the internet of things and the data inter-connectivity they all depend on will only reach their full potential with the speed and power promised by quantum computing.
Automation and robotics is an increasing feature of industry and the wider world and the need for real-time oversight analysis and control in the use of automated processes and production in industry and growth of self-driving vehicles will require a significant increase in data speed and power.
Right now it would take 11 trillion years to download a yottabyte file from the internet using current hi-speed broadband. Quantum computing will transform today’s existing speed and time deficiencies and enable powerful new technologies that will transform the world.
