Quantum Computing: 4 Things You Need to Know

The very computer you’re reading this on — desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone — is using bits to store information. That is, ones and zeroes. Quantum computers, on the other hand, use qubits, which can represent a one, a zero, or both a one and a zero at the same time. This means, they can make calculations faster — MUCH faster. Quantum computers can crack even the most secure government encryption keys, making them a security threat. But, they’re not so accessible, and will mostly be used for research and complex problem solving. They will, however, eventually make a splash in the enterprise world.
