How Quantum Computing evolved?

Quantum mechanics is the foundation of quantum computing. It deals with subatomic and atomic-level energy interactions. Quantum mechanics can solve unsolved theoretical problems in chemistry, physics, and technology. It is therefore considered the stepping stone to the unification theory of the Universe.

Quantum mechanics presents a major challenge because it is difficult to simulate quantum models. Simulating a simple quantum system with few interactions takes a lot of computing power. This knowledge gap was studied by Richard Feynman, Yuri Manin, and they proposed a new type of computing called quantum computing. The Controlled NOT (CNOT), gate that can simulate any quantum circuit, is what they used to introduce quantum computing.

What is Quantum Computing?

Quantum computers can perform miracles when the problem is extremely complex and the system must process large amounts of data. Quantum computing leverages uncertainties in a way that classical computing cannot. Conventional computing uses bits with two states: 1 and 0. Quantum computing uses the Qubits (Quantum bit) to leverage the states 0, 1 and quantum superpositions 0 and 1.

Arguments suggest that the higher states can lead to a greater computational delay and thus reduce processing speed. This argument is valid if you only consider one operation. It may take longer. However, the number of steps required to solve a computationally complex problem can be greatly reduced. This is how quantum computers can simulate subatomic particle interactions. Quantum architecture also uses many other quantum principles, such as superposition and quantum entanglement.

Quantum Computing: What Can It Do for You?

Quantum computing is still in its infant stage. However, it will continue to make significant advances in machine learning, material science and Theoretical Physics, Nuclear physics, Chemistry, Energy, Medicine Design, and other areas.

Information security is one of the most significant threats scientists expect. Our existing cryptographic techniques, which are based on the complexity of the mathematical problem, will be a breeze for quantum computers when quantum computers are fully operational. This scenario requires a complete overhaul of our existing cryptocurrency architecture and information security architecture.

How to Get Your Hands on Quantum Computing

Users have many cloud-based options for quantum computing. The main players include IBM quantum, Google Quantum Computing Service, (Cirq), Amazon Bracket and Microsoft Azure Quantum. Azure quantum is the only service that does not limit you to a single quantum hardware in order to implement your quantum logic. Since early 2021, Azure quantum computing has been available for public preview.

Why Azure Quantum?

Azure quantum computing can provide you Quantum Development Kit, the best development environment of all the spectra of quantum services. There are significant benefits to multiple quantum hardware uses, including flexibility and adaptability.

Quantinum, IONQ and Pasqal are the main quantum service providers in Azure Quantum. Azure quantum allows you to use popular quantum programming frameworks like Qiskit, Cirq, and Q#. It also provides Quantum Inspired Optimization (QIO) and quantum computing service. IQbit, Microsoft QIO and Toshiba SBM are the major QIO service providers for Azure Quantum.
