Honeywell Talks Future of Quantum Computing

Honeywell gives a non technical (but necessarily incomplete) view of the state and future of quantum computing. And they are apparently bullish on its future.  Note mention of their work with Microsoft on the topic.

The Future of Quantum Computing
The three things you will want to know about the technology
It's time — quantum computing is going from something that's theoretical to practical. And it's on its way to having real impact. 

A new partnership between Microsoft’s Azure Quantum and Honeywell offers another way for organizations across the globe to be introduced to quantum computing.

“The era of quantum computing is just beginning, and we are looking forward to bringing that capability to a broader audience,” said Tony Uttley, president of Honeywell Quantum Solutions.

Here are three to know:  

1.     What’s a ‘qubit’ and how it works

Computers traditionally use bits to process information. But quantum computing depends on bits that have properties of quantum physics – called qubits.

Traditional computing bits are either “0” or “1,” but qubits can be in both states at the same time, a quantum property called superposition.

Another quantum property, called entanglement, allows for qubits to be quantum mechanically connected to other qubits in the system.

As a result, quantum computers leverage entanglement and superposition to solve previously impossible computational problems.  ...    (More at link) .... '
