A new computer that is millions of times smarter than the current super computer! Scientists think that within 5-10 years the first commercial Quantum computing will be operational.
What are Quantum Computers?
Where traditional computers work with bits, a 1 and 0 quantum computers work with Qubits.
These Qubits have special properties.
Qubits represent atoms, ions, photons or electrons and their respective control devices that work together to act as computer memory and a processor.
Because a Quantum Computer can hold these multiple states at the same time, it has the potential to be MILLIONS of TIMES more powerful than today’s most powerful supercomputers.
Quantum Computers also make use of another aspect of quantum mechanics known as entanglement. Quantum particles are connected to each other where distance has no influence whatsoever. This is an important part of Quantum Computers that is still being researched.
in a nutshell – kurzgesagt has very nice and interesting videos on YouTube
This video explains Quantum Computers with fine animations.
