Why should you care?
Quantum Computing is currently rising on the Gartner Hype Cycle and could become one of the most impactful disruptions of the modern era. Most people’s eyes glaze over when you try to explain the concept. And, yet, those in the know also fear the power of that same concept. How can something so misunderstood be poised to affect so many different things across the spectrum of science and computing?
It is already known
that Quantum Computing is going to completely disrupt fields like pharmacy, chemistry, finance and cryptography. Even though classical supercomputers are still superior to their quantum counterparts today, companies are already building the groundwork for when the first practical quantum computer becomes available.
This means that the coming quantum revolution could arrive much more suddenly than previous digital revolutions like cloud and mobile computing. Therefore, being “Quantum Ready” will be the deciding competitive advantage for the coming decade.
For CIOs, it’s critical to understand the reality of the Quantum Computing disruption and how it might become a practical platform for computing, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) in the digital age.
