What It Will Take to Make Quantum Computers Practical

As the marathon to achieve the promise of quantum computing edges forward one step at a time, researchers are making incredible discoveries in the lab. But moving from lab scale to the real world will require demonstrating quantum practicality – the moment this transformative technology makes the leap from research to commercial viability in applications such as drug development, logistics optimization (e.g., finding the most efficient way from any number of possible travel routes), natural disaster prediction and many more. At Intel, that’s our ultimate goal.
