Quantum Technology

Quantum technologies are much hyped, but yet to be practical for most companies and use-cases. However, the potential for disruption is vast. Quantum technologies, based on the interactions of particles smaller than a millionth of a grain of sand, defy what most of us understand by the laws of physics. Because of this, quantum promises capabilities that few would believe are possible: computers that solve impossible equations in one operation, instantaneous communications across continents, codes that reveal if they’ve been cracked, and even the possibility of teleportation. 451 Research’s Centre of Excellence for Quantum Technology provides a cross-discipline view into this yet unrealized but truly disruptive technology. Analysts take a critical look into the theory, implementation and application of quantum tech with a realistic eye on what is possible today, but a feasible view of what is possible.
