Market forecasts for the Internet of Things (IoT) predict that over a trillion sensors will soon be deployed around the world, collecting data. This data could be used to locate objects, understand and improve the performance of industrial assets, or support crucial research to prevent and cure diseases.
For example, an Airbus 380-1000 series aircraft is expected to have more than 20,000 sensors generate more than 7.5 terabytes of data per day. By analyzing this data from hundreds of planes, airlines and their suppliers could improve the reliability and performance of the fleet. With the volume, velocity and variety of data rapidly increasing, quantum computing is a crucial technology for gleaning insights and driving outcomes.
While conventional computers store information using bits representing 0s and 1s, in a quantum computer, the unit of information is called a qubit, which can be a 0 or a 1 or both at the same time. This enables quantum computers to consider and manipulate all combinations of bits simultaneously, making quantum computation extremely powerful.
