It is common belief that “Quantum Computing is the future” as they present new and efficient ways of solving computationally-intensive problems. Promises of RSA -breaking complexity-theoretic speedups incite interest in the industry. However, the world has not yet fallen into quantum madness in the same way that the we see industrial obsessions with HPC and AI. So what’s the hold-up? This talk will give a basic intuition for the advantages of Quantum Computing (no maths!!!) as well as a discussion on the limitations of current devices and how(/if) we are dealing with them.
