Over the last decade, we've witnessed a digital revolution powered by the advances of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). Unlike classical computers, which process information using binary digits (bits), quantum computers use quantum bits (qubits) that can exist in multiple states simultaneously. This property allows quantum computers to perform certain computations exponentially faster than classical computers.
As we continue to push the boundaries of classical computing, quantum computing offers an exciting and promising new frontier to solve the most intractable problems like climate change, disease eradication, and secure communication.
Quantum computing is still in its infancy, and building a practical quantum computer is an enormous challenge. This talk will highlight the progress, challenges, and integration of quantum computing for real applications.
