Future of Health Care with Quantum Computing
Updated: Jan 28, 2018
Researchers at D-Wave, one of the leading Quantum Computing firms, have come up with another potential use of Quantum Computers. Knowing the immense computing power and ability to exist in multiple possibilities at once, researchers are trying to use Quantum Computers to interpret data that current computers, and even humans, cannot currently comprehend. An example mentioned was that of certain sequences of DNA, and how that particularly could cause or prevent cancer. This is a very interesting application of Quantum Computers, and again shows the immense potential in multiple fields of Quantum Computing. Combined with the prototype silicon quantum chip created by researchers at the University of New South Wales, Quantum Computing could be implemented for medical research very soon in the future.
