Lockheed Martin bought a version of D-Wave’s quantum computer and plans to upgrade it to commercial scale.

“Quantum computing is so much faster than traditional computing because of the unusual properties of particles at the smallest level. Instead of the precision of ones and zeros that have been used to represent data since the earliest days of computers, quantum computing relies on the fact that subatomic particles inhabit a range of states. Different relationships among the particles may coexist, as well. Those probable states can be narrowed to determine an optimal outcome among a near-infinitude of possibilities, which allows certain types of problems to be solved rapidly.”

Quantum Computing will certainly be a game changer… I don’t want to write code for them though… we’re going to need
