Quantum Computers: Solving Problems in Minutes, Not Millennia

For years, people have talked about the development of computers so powerful they could replace every data center on Earth and solve in seconds problems that would take traditional computers millennia to crack. Today, public and private companies are accelerating their efforts to develop these “quantum computers,” elevating them onto Goldman Sachs Research’s “Outsiders” list of emerging ecosystems to watch. Toshiya Hari, GS Research’s lead semiconductors analyst, discusses potential applications for quantum computing from drug development to logistics, as well as how soon to expect commercial scale.
