Contrary to popular belief, quantum applications exist today. It’s still early in the long-term arc of quantum computing development, but don’t let language like “nascent” or “immature” fool you.
Practical applications are closer than you may think. Quantum computers are targeted at solving intractable problems, but it’s a common misconception that businesses will need to wait 10 or 20 years before quantum computers are useful for business challenges your organization faces.
Fortune 1000 companies and startups alike are already building early applications on quantum computers to tackle real-world problems — everything from urban traffic optimization to improved election modeling. Until now, barriers like system access, cost, and technical knowledge have stood in the way. But in the past couple of years alone, we’ve seen an expansion of quantum computing access via the cloud, enabling more developers, applied researchers and forward-thinking enterprises to experiment with, build and run quantum applications. The barriers are coming down, and the era of quantum applications is arriving.
Developers want to be part of it, and business leaders need to be ready for it. While it’s true quantum development enables an entirely new paradigm, that doesn’t mean it’s too early. In fact, it’s exactly the right time to get involved in quantum development. Quantum Though can help you get started.
