The world of quantum technologies can be usefully separated into three segments.
Quantum Computing gets all the attention, all the press and all the investment – but they don’t do anything useful (yet).
Even though we are on the threshold of a world-changing era of Quantum Computing, there are a number of hurdles that must be overcome before a practical, general-purpose Quantum Computer emerges. This is analogous to the situation in the late 1940’s, when the most powerful computer in the world was the ENIAC.
Quantum sensing gets practically no attention, no press and little investment, but it has already changed our world.
The most widely used quantum sensor is the atomic clock, the core of GPS positioning. With this, we can summon a cab to an empty street corner. Future advancements in quantum sensing will include advances in astronomy, radar, biochemistry and continued improvements to miniaturized precision timing.
Quantum Communications & Security
Quantum Communications & Security innovations will radically advance both Quantum Computing and Sensing.
As a consequence of these advances, the world will become both more private and more secure in the near future. Eventually, Quantum Communications & Security will enable a worldwide backbone that will supercharge the existing internet, leading to many unanticipated innovations.
