On the Future of Quantum Computing

A good description and view of the future of quantum computing, by IBM and others.   In Computerworld: " ... Quantum computers could provide a big boost to technologies that are problematic for conventional computers, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and logistics. Some researchers are worried that quantum computers could be able to break cryptographic protection, but Security Innovation has developed a public key algorithm, NTRUSignTM, that the company claims is resistant to quantum computing attacks.... "

I will agree in particular on logistics, a speciality of mine, there are still some problems that need to be optimized and re-optimized rapidly, that are still beyond the current capabilities of standard computing.
