Quantum Computing No January 3, (Faculty) Quantum Computing Todays computers are based on ical physics. Now with evolving technologies and innovations, scientists present to us quantum computing. Quantum computing is an area of study focused on theoretical computation systems based on the principles of quantum mechanics. Wolf (2014) stipulates that “ A quantum system can be in a superposition of many different states at the same time”. Quantum computing seeks to investigate computational power and discover its power over the current classical systems. One major factor theoretically covered by this system is the time factor. Aaronson (2008) in his article reveals to us that quantum computers are theoretically exponentially faster than the current classical systems.
Quantum computing is an embodiment of how smarter the machines and humans have become. A quantum machine can analyze big data within minutes therefore relieving humans the burden. This is one way in which the technology will take over human tasks and to a great extent improving the human lifestyle (Aaronson 2008). Quantum computing was realized from the dealings of humans with machines as they tried to analyze the spooky behavior of nature (Nielsen & Chuang 2010).
As much as this technology promises a lot, some scientists concider it as technology of the impossible due to the complexities involved in realizing it (Aaronson 2008). For instance is so difficult to measure quantum bits. Furthermore quantum computers could be used decrypt data hence contributing to data theft in classical systems. Generally, quantum computing is a technology of the near future generatyion. It is an implication of how man and machines are really getting along in the modern world.
