A quantum future: preparing Canada for the potential impacts of quantum computing
thesisposted on 23.05.2021, 14:57 authored by Sahar Shoja
Quantum computation has the potential to transform the way various Canadian industries do business. Unlike classical computers which use bits, computers built using the principles of quantum mechanics use qubits, which allows them to perform several complex tasks simultaneously and at an exponentially faster speed. This research will analyze the potential impact of quantum computing on Canada's cybersecurity and workforce. It will also highlight barriers to entry for this burgeoning technology and provide recommendations that address current and future challenges. It is proposed that if Canada embraces this technology's opportunities and addresses its challenges, it can continue to be a global leader in the field of quantum computing.
