Top 5 trends for quantum computing in 2023
Crystal balling what the top trends in quantum computing will be in 2023 is a hell of a challenge. The field is rapidly evolving and there are so many factors that could influence its development. Traditional hiring models often fall short in these environments. Our embedded consultancy model has supported partners to scale blockchain, nuclear fusion and carbon capture technologies.
However, here are our top 5 that are more likely to continue in the coming years:
It takes eye-watering sums of money to create the super cooled conditions and hire the best minds on the planet to harness this technology. Companies will increasingly need pathways from deep research into commercial applications to keep investors on board.
2) Quantum Software
As quantum computers become more powerful and available, there will be a growing need for quantum software to enable their use. We’d expect an increased focus on developing software tools and specialised programming languages for quantum computers.
3) Quantum internet
There is growing interest in the development of a quantum internet, which would allow for secure communication using quantum encryption. Today’s digital cryptography used in DeFi and Web3 could be rendered useless with the hacking potential of emerging quantum computers.
4) Quantum computers in research
Quantum computers have the potential to revolutionize research in fields such as medicine, chemistry, materials science, and machine learning. There is hope that new drugs and predictive analytics can materially improve our health and wellbeing. Quantum computing provides the power to bring forward research by hundreds, thousands of years!
5) Hybrid classical-quantum systems
It is likely that we will see the development of hybrid systems that combine classical computing with quantum computing, in order to take advantage of the strengths of both approaches.
These are just a few examples of the trends that may shape the development of quantum computing in the coming years. It is important to note that the field is rapidly evolving, and there may be other trends that emerge as well.
What impact will Quantum Computing have on jobs
Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize many industries and could have a profound impact on the job market.
It is likely that quantum computers will be used to solve complex problems that are currently beyond the capabilities of classical computers, which could lead to the creation of new job opportunities in fields such as finance, healthcare, and logistics.
However, at the same time, it is also possible that quantum computing could automate certain tasks and lead to job displacement in some fields. For example, quantum computers could be used to perform tasks such as data analysis and optimization that are currently performed by humans.
The supply of engineers and the resources to build and maintain quantum computers will also influence the impact this computing power will have and the timeframe that change will be seen.
Overall, it is difficult to predict exactly how quantum computing will affect the job market, as the field is still in its early stages and there are many unknowns.
What is clear is that quantum computing has the potential to significantly impact many industries and the job market.
Here at Bond we will stay informed and help partners adapt to these changes as they occur.
