Re: Google, NASA, Bet On Quantum Computing
Amazing tech no doubt, but you can lump me in with the skeptics on this one. 'Quantum Computing' is a term that's been thrown around for years, and it seems like it's own complexity is only half of what holds it back. 'traditional' computing is also too entrenched. As you said, everything we know about it goes out the window with quantum - it will only be able to run purpose-built 'software' and carry out what it's built for. I feel like that's not a winning investment any time soon, considering the high expense involved. Couple that with IBM's concerns (as Susan said, not to be discounted), and that's a lot to chew on. Still, far be it from me to say nay to research for research's sake.
