Current status of quantum computing

Krishnakumar Sabapathy

The experts are convinced that in time they can build a high-performance quantum computer. Given the technical hurdles that quantum computing faces—manipulations at nanoscale, for instance, or operating either in a vacuum environment or at cryogenic temperatures—the progress in recent years is hard to overstate. In the long term, such machines will very likely shape new paradigms by solving computational problems that are currently out of reach, such as in cryptography, chemistry and machine learning. I will give a highly accessible and bird's-eye view of the current status of quantum computing and why its got everyone talking about it!
