Archimedes, The Farmers Conundrum, and the Implications of Quantum Computing for Security

Quantum computing isn’t going to be a cloud application where we substitute traditional computing techniques for Quantum analysis. Very similar to Archimedes potential use of a Quantum computer, if he had one, would be to make his trigonometry more accurate for larger approximations of volume and area. It didn’t replace his mathematics; rather, it made his calculations better. The case for security is very similar. The first uses for quantum computing would be to enhance existing analytics with information gleaned from quantum analysis.

Increasingly, organizations understand that leveraging a cloud model is the best way to achieve those objectives. With the release of the POWER9 processor, IBM is supporting this global trend by delivering industrial-strength cloud functionality right out of the box.
