What comes next?
While the technology is yet to hit the mainstream and, as yet, claims no firm de facto programming languages, the current activities in the quantum computing space all seem to point to genuine use cases further down the track.
IBM, for example, is working to build out a community and to simplify the learning curve through the build out of logical connectors bridging classical computing constructs and emerging quantum computing constructs.
At the same time, extensive education and training materials will be required for skills development to address quantum computing.
As TBR stated: "The quantum computing landscape is not necessarily technology in pursuit of a use case, but rather it is technology in pursuit of a well-trained workforce that can translate its power into productive commercial outputs".
