Quantum Computing: The "In-Your-Face" Disruption Few Understand and Some Fear

What happens when a computer can break your encryption algorithms almost as fast as you can create new ones? That is one of the fears about quantum computing. Is it real or is it hype? Quantum computing is rapidly maturing and threatens to become one of the most impactful disruptions in the modern era impacting machine learning, AI, bitcoin and current day security encryption. Most people glaze over when you try to explain the concept. And, yet, those in the know also fear the power of that very same concept. How can something so misunderstood be poised to affect so many different things across the spectrum of science and computing? Today, we will investigate the reality of quantum computing disruption and how it might become a practical platform for computing and machine learning in the Digital Age.
