Quantum Top Trends for 2023 and 2030: 11 Experts
Quantum Information Science / Quantum Computing continues to make significant progress until 2023. Commercial applications will be available whereby difficult practical problems are solved much faster with QC (quantum edge) and QC solves seemingly impossible problems (not practical issues) as well as test cases that would otherwise take classical computers, such supercomputers, thousands of years. Both terms are often used interchangeably. New algorithms on classic computers can sometimes be used to challenge claims of quantum superiority or advantage.
It is possible that hybrid systems combining quantum computers with classical computers, such as supercomputers and analog computers in the future, could be thousands or even millions of times more efficient in solving intractable problems and challenges. Imagine the benefits and implications to Earth’s ecosystems as well as humanity in areas such as big-data analytics, weather prediction, aerospace, and new transportation engineering.

The BDC Deep Tech Fund invested in QC Company Xanadu (see my Forbes article Government Deep Tech 2022: Top Funding Focus Explainable: AI, Photonics and Quantum). In 2018, the US National Quantum Initiative Act of USD $1.2 billion and the related U.S. Department of Energy will provide USD $625 millions over five years to five national laboratories leading quantum information research: Argonne Brookhaven Fermi Lawrence Berkeley Oak Ridge. The US CHIPS and Science Act will provide hundreds of millions of dollars in funding by August 2022. The coverage includes: accelerating quantum applications, growing a diverse domestic workforce, development of critical infrastructure, and standardization cutting-edge R&D.
