Businesses eager to embrace cutting-edge technology are exploring quantum computing, which depends on qubits to perform computations that would be much more difficult, or simply not feasible, on classical computers. The ultimate goals are quantum advantage, the inflection point when quantum computers begin to solve useful problems. While that is a long way off (if it can even be achieved), the potential is massive. Applications include everything from cryptography and optimization to machine learning and materials science.
As quantum computing startup IonQ has described it, quantum computing is a marathon, not a sprint. The company's CEO, Peter Chapman, discusses a variety of topics, including quantum computing's future impact on artificial intelligence and machine learning.
