What is Quantum Computing?


Quantum computing is an area of study focused on the development of computer based technologies centered around the principles of quantum theory. Quantum theory explains the nature and behavior of energy and matter on the quantum (atomic and subatomic) level. Quantum computing uses a combination of bits to perform specific computational tasks. All at a much higher efficiency than their classical counterparts. Development of quantum computers mark a leap forward in computing capability, with massive performance gains for specific use cases. For example quantum computing excels at like simulations.
