What is Quantum Computing?
Quantum computing exploits quantum effects, such as entanglement and superposition, to perform computations. Unlike traditional computers that solve problems in series or parallel, these quantum effects allow quantum computers to process all information concurrently and instantaneously. Hence, quantum computing has the potential to provide huge improvements in computation power.
