Today, quantum computing is a researcher’s playground. In five years, it will be mainstream.
“In five years, quantum computing will be used extensively by new categories of professionals and developers to solve problems once considered unsolvable,” IBM says. “Quantum will be ubiquitous in university classrooms, and will even be available, to some degree, at the high school level. IBM Researchers are already achieving major quantum chemistry milestones. They successfully simulated atomic bonding in beryllium hydride (BeH2), the most complex molecule ever simulated by a quantum computer. In the future, quantum computers will continue to address problems with ever increasing complexity, eventually catching up to and surpassing what we can do with classical machines alone.”
