The Possibilities of Quantum Computers
Quantum Computers are computation devices that makes direct use of the quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data. Based on current trends in the IT Industry, Quantum Computing could be one of if not the most important technologies in the next five to ten years.
