Quantum computing has evolved over the years and so has the career opportunities that this marvellous technology offers. It has evolved from fundamental tech jargons to how to build a quantum computer and share it over the cloud. This is a mammoth step translating from quantum science to quantum ready.
This dramatic shift will affect how quickly quantum computers can process almost infinite combinations of scenarios simultaneously. The implications have a far-reaching impact on the sensitive national and commercial data, from information shared over the cloud to digital payments, blockchain transactions to national infrastructure.
Rapid Surge in Quantum Investments
Quantum computing has seen rapid investments being made by some of the world’s largest economies, including Russia, Australia, US and China. Countries which fail to meet the quantum investment may be left out of the competition forever!
The ramifications are both exciting and frightening. Quantum technology has a massive potential to bring breakthroughs in space engineering, medicine, energy exploration, logistics planning, fraud detection and so on. However, the giant leap of quantum computing would mean increasing pressures on national security, including cyber-security, and sophistication of malicious code-cracking, to network breaches and data protection issues.
