Lunchbox-sized Quantum Computer on the Fast Track to Market

April 28, 2022

Quantum Brilliance has figured out a technique to make quantum computers more accessible, which could help with the world’s growing data storage problems. It an Australian National University spin-off, has created the world’s first room-temperature quantum computer, small enough to fit inside a lunchbox.

What is Quantum Computer?

Quantum computing is a subfield of computer science that focuses on developing computer technology based on quantum theory principles (which explains the behavior of energy and material on the atomic and subatomic levels). Today’s computers can only encode information in bits with values of 1 or 0, severely limiting their capabilities. 

Quantum computing uses quantum bits, often known as qubits. It takes advantage of the one-of-a-kind ability of subatomic particles to exist in several states.

Understanding Quantum Computing

These supercomputers are supported by two aspects of quantum physics: superposition and entanglement. This enables quantum computers to perform operations faster and with far less energy consumption than conventional computers.

Quantum computing has the potential to improve finance, military affairs and intelligence, drug creation and research, aircraft design, utilities (nuclear fusion), polymer design, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data search, and digital manufacturing.

Due to the general potential and expected market size, IBM, Microsoft, Google, D-Waves Systems, Alibaba, Nokia, Intel, Airbus, HP, Toshiba, Mitsubishi, SK Telecom, NEC, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Rigetti, Biogen, Volkswagen, all of these companies have expressed an interest in working in the field of quantum computing.

It is anticipated that by 2040, our traditional computers will no longer be able to power all of the equipment on the planet. As a result, the computer industry is rushing to make quantum computers available to the general public. Quantum Brilliance is a step ahead of the competition. 

Not only is the size of Quantum Brilliance’s quantum computer revolutionary, but the fact that it can operate at room temperature is revolutionary as well, bringing the world one step closer to solving our information storage issues, among other things. To function properly, quantum computers have traditionally required super-cooled fridges and vacuum chambers similar to those found in deep space. As a result, making them a part of everyday technology, such as traditional computers, is nearly impossible.

The technology developed by Quantum Brilliance, which is based on diamond quantum computers, can run at room temperature with simple controls and provide comparable performance. Despite the fact that this is not a new technology, Quantum Brilliance’s fundamental advances address previous limitations such as size and control structure integration, as well as the use of synthetic diamonds. These improved quantum computers benefit drug design, chemical synthesis, energy storage, and nanotechnology.

 Classical Computer vs. Quantum Computer

Quantum computers have a unique manner of processing data. Quantum computers use qubits, which can be 1 or 0 at the exact moment. The power of quantum computing grows exponentially as the number of qubits coupled together increases. Meanwhile, increasing the number of transistors connected increases power just linearly. 

Traditional PCs are ideal for common chores that require a computer. Quantum computers are ideal for doing simulations and data analytics, such as for medication or chemical studies. These computers, on the other hand, must be kept extremely cold. They are also more costly and harder to construct. Increasing computer memory is a classic example of traditional computing advancement. In the meantime, quantum computers aid in the resolution of more difficult problems. While quantum computers will not be able to run Microsoft Word faster or more efficiently, they will be able to solve complex problems more quickly.

Quantum computing has a wide range of applications, including secure data transfer. Combating cancer and other health issues, as well as developing new medications, are examples of other approaches. Quantum computers can also aid in the development of radars, as well as their ability to detect missiles and planes. The environment and the use of quantum computing with chemical sensors to keep the water clean are two other areas of interest.
