That being said there have been some major breakthroughs in the past couple of years regarding the development of a computer that can start to harness the power of quantum technology, promising vastly superior processing power and potential step changes in the fields of advanced cryptography, complex modelling to running advanced artificial intelligence algorithms.

Here we will provide a rundown of the basics of quantum computing – from qubits to Fredkin gates –before diving into how enterprise vendors like IBM are leading the charge to make quantum computing a reality, and some examples of companies looking to get in early regarding uses of the technology.
