Quantum computing: An insider’s guide (free PDF)
Although the full potential of quantum computing may not be realized for several years, the promise of its capabilities is sparking numerous experimental initiatives. This ebook looks at what quantum computing is, the solutions it could enable, and where it may be headed.
From the ebook:1. Quantum computers won’t replace classical computers
“Quantum computers will never be able to run the if/then/else type of logic that we’re familiar with with our traditional Von Neumann architecture computers, [where they are] sequentially going from step to step,” said Andy Stanford Clark, IBM CTO for UK and Ireland.
