Betting big on quantum technology

Alibaba, Baidu, Tencent and Huawei have given an edge to Chinese supremacy by providing computing capabilities based on Q-bits. India’s mission to develop 50 Q-bit computers in 4-5 years is a tall order, but certainly achievable given the computing prowess that we have. India’s mission to develop 50 Q-bit computers in 4-5 years is a tall order, but certainly achievable given the computing prowess that we have. For instance, with Q-bit, no code is ‘hack resistant’. Information technology-based security infrastructure would never be the same once quantum systems become a reality, given that they give the power to hack into anyone’s networks in a jiffy. China and the US seem to be ahead of Russian researchers in establishing quantum-based technology networks, thereby sparking a scare in others. These reports sent a shiver down the US spine, leading them to push IBM, Google and Microsoft to hasten their efforts.
