Given the recent growth of big data-based research and analysis and cloud-based computing, I expect high-performance computing usage to surge in 2022. From drug discovery to cancer research to space exploration, high-performance computing will become increasingly important, and quantum computing technology needs to keep up with business demand.
We’ve already seen massive development in quantum computing space by players including Google, IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, and Alibaba. Startups such as Rigetti Computing, D-Wave Systems, ColdQuanta,1QBit, Zapata Computing, and QC Ware have exceeded the industry expectations in their technology and their growth.
We expect rapid progress in quantum computing during 2022, because the high demand for larger machine power is going to accelerate development in this sector. We’ll likely see announcements of large qubit developments in the new year. Commercial quantum computing will soon be within our reach, and new breakthroughs will occur at an accelerated pace.
