Roughly 50 years ago, legendary quantum physicist Richard Feynman formulated the theoretical principles upon which a quantum computer could be built. However, actually building a computer based on quantum mechanics has proven overwhelmingly difficult. Yet, it finally seems that the first primitive quantum computers are ready to enter the workplace. While these machines are suited for only a narrow subset of applications, their impact promises to be significant. More importantly, they’ll pave the way for even more powerful and useful machines in the coming decade. What will this mean for you as a manager, consumer, and investor? We’ll show you.
