Quantum computing is poised to become many times more efficient than our current computers, yet no one seems to know that it’s happening. In 2019, Google demonstrated quantum supremacy, where an actual quantum computer solved a complex math problem in 200 seconds which would have taken today’s supercomputers around 10,000 years to solve. Companies like Google, IBM, Amazon, and Microsoft, as well as universities such as Harvard, MIT, University of Chicago, University of Maryland, Yale, and more have all established their own quantum computing departments in order to advance quantum computing research. A world where quantum computing plays a significant role if it hasn’t arrived yet, will arrive very soon.
