Quantum computing is not just coming, it’s actually already here. There are quantum computers shipping right now just in very small numbers. Quantum computing is a different system than the classical computing we’re all used to.
We know that the computers we’re accustomed to have bits that can store either a 1 or a 0. Quantum computers on the other hand operate with qubits, which can be simultaneously a 1 and a 0 at the same time. Quantum computing is anything but intuitive.
There is a position that the human brain and our intelligence and even consciousness itself is a quantum process. If this is the case, then as we rocket towards a future of quantum computing we may find that that is our path to general intelligence and machine consciousness.
