Naveh.: How will quantum computing be used as a force for good to positively impact communities & the world?
(Forbes) Dr. Yehuda Naveh, the co-founder and CTO of Classiq, writes here about how quantum computing can be used as a force for to positively impact communities and the world as a whole. IQT-News summarizes his thoughtful discussion below.
Quantum computing can serve to help address inequities, increase sustainability and improve health. It may appeal to employees, who are resigning in record numbers and increasingly looking to find meaning in their work and be associated with people who are a force for good. It can reduce energy consumption in data centers because “quantum computers vastly outperform supercomputers when it comes to energy efficiency.” And it can enable you to align with the growing environmental, social and governance (ESG) movement which, as Fast Company reports, is reaching new heights.
Here are some examples of quantum for good:
- Leverage Quantum Computing To Improve Credit Risk Analysis
- Understand That Quantum Can Democratize Financial Advising
- Power Your Business More Sustainably With The Help Of Quantum
- Consider How Local Energy Storage Could Improve World Health
A recent study indicates that 69% of enterprises across the globe have adopted or are planning to adopt quantum computing in the next year. But quantum is not just about business advantage. Quantum will also be a major force for good. From better carbon capture and reduced carbon emission to enhanced soil usage for higher crop yields and sustainable wildlife conservation, quantum algorithms are about to take us one large step into a better world to live in.
