Just like classical computers, quantum computers use ones and zeros, but qubits have a third state called “superposition” that allows them to represent a one or a zero at the same time.

They will also change the landscape of data security. Predictions are that quantum computers can prove to be hack-proof replacements for some of the traditional computing techniques.

Once a stable quantum computer gets developed, expect that machine learning will exponentially accelerate even reducing the time to solve a problem from hundreds of thousands of years to seconds.

## Quantum computing is based on the principles of quantum physics, which are a little different from the traditional rules of physics.

## Classical computers manipulate ones and zeroes to crunch through operations, but quantum computers use quantum bits or qubits.

## Just like classical computers, quantum computers use ones and zeros, but qubits have a third state called “superposition” that allows them to represent a one or a zero at the same time.

## Instead of analysing a one or a zero sequentially, superposition allows two qubits in superposition to represent four scenarios at the same time.

## Therefore, the time it takes to process a set of data is significantly reduced.

## Quantum computers can solve problems that are impossible or would take a traditional computer a billion years to solve.

## They will also change the landscape of data security. Predictions are that quantum computers can prove to be hack-proof replacements for some of the traditional computing techniques.

## Google announced it has a quantum computer that is 100 million times faster than any classical computer in its lab.

## Quantum computers will reduce power consumption anywhere from 100 up to 1000 times because quantum computers use quantum tunnelling.

## Once a stable quantum computer gets developed, expect that machine learning will exponentially accelerate even reducing the time to solve a problem from hundreds of thousands of years to seconds.
