Can a quantum system be probabilistically simulated by a classical (probabilistic, I assume) universal computer? In other words, a computer which will give the same probabilities as the quantum system does. The answer is certainly, No!' This is called the hidden-variable theorem: It is impossible to represent the result of quantum mechanics with a classical universal device.
- Richard P. Feynman’s lecture titled Simulating Physics with Computers

Quantum Computing

Quantum computing, an amalgamation of quantum physics, computer science and information theory. It promises to achieve what looks impossible for conventional computers – solving problems that even the fastest computers today cannot. D-Wave quantum computers is faster than fastest computers today.

Why choose RCQE?

Quantum computing offers capabilities that are far ahead of those of classical computers. While the classical computing arena used electronic bits to represent ‘1’ and ‘0’ (ON/OFF), quantum computers operate with “qubits” that can represent ‘1’ and ‘0’ simultaneously.

With the qubits representing atoms, ions, photons/electrons and control devices huge volumes of numerical calculations can be processed, resulting in super efficiency and increased computing speed. This is a big paradigm shift in the world of computing!

As an RCQ Engineer, you are equipped to handle and solve issues that would be considered impossible on conventional computer systems. Being an RCQE enables to excel in solving encryption and optimization problems. Studying molecular and atomic interactions or designing new materials or drugs, are easier for a RCQ Engineer.

Quantum computers are really good at solving those problems where you’ve got an exponential number of permutations to try out, says Stanford Clark, IBM CTO for UK and Ireland. He also adds that, The tipping point as to where classical computers give way to quantum computers is in the 50-60 qubit mark.

Bringing Quantum Computer to Everyday Life – The Benefits

Quantum computing is sure to penetrate into our everyday interaction with machines in a big way. From simulation of quantum systems, designing superconductors operating at room temperature, attempting molecular modelling research, efficient machine learning, to cybersecurity, quantum computing has already made a foray into the latest technical advancements.

D-Wave Computing

The D-Wave Systems’ quantum computers promise to overtake the fastest supercomputers in solving specific complex problems. Troubleshooting and problem solving is executed based on the counterintuitive behavior of matter at the atomic level and quantum resistors. These quantum computers can also tackle bioscience or cybersecurity problems which are not possible with conventional computers. Though D-Wave quantum computers are very expensive as of today, they are preferred by global giants like Google, NASA, Lockheed Martin, etc. because they provide interaction between their machines through a cloud service.

Future Of Quantum Computing – The Demand For RCQE

The quantum computing technique is appropriate to handle specific types of tasks in future, for example the prime factorization of large numbers, encryption techniques, crack codes that could harm communications and financial transactions. Further quantum computing research could give release to newer types of processors, navigation mechanisms, encryption tools, sensors and security systems. Information theory is another field where quantum computing is going to play a greater role in future.

Apart from China and the European Union investing billions of dollars in quantum computing, the President of United States of America, Donal Trump has recently signed up for accelerating quantum computing R&D as a legislation.

Traffic optimization, election modelling, marketing, advertising applications, autonomous driving, are just some of the innumerable sectors waiting for the pathbreaking quantum computing revolution to carry out calculations on a larger system of data and compute optimal real-time values.
