So how have some big companies responded to the development in quantum computing?
IBM expects to have a commercially available 50-
Google has also bought a quantum computer from D-
Lockheed Martin is also a customer of D-
The first quantum computer was demonstrated in 1998 by Oxford researchers, Jonathan A. Jones and Michele Mosca. It was a working 2-
Things have moved on a little since then.
At around $15 million a pop, buying one of today’s quantum computers will be out of the price range of most people. There’s the question too of what uses it might have. Many believe that quantum computers will improve enough to be in use by governments and big companies by the 2030s. From there, it might take another decade or so before they become miniaturized and cheap enough to become popular consumer items. So you should expect to keep using classical computers for another 30 years at least.
A better way might be to access fully-
Should quantum computers ever go mass-
Also, to exploit its full quantum power, a personal quantum device would likely have some biometric capability. It will be able to operate on an intracellular level, monitoring all aspects of physiological function. As such the quantum computer may end up being worn by the user as jewelry or clothing, even operated by thought via sensors.
