Since its beginnings as a theory developed independently by American physicists Paul Benioff and Richard Feynman and Russian mathematician Yuri Manin, quantum computing has been in a perpetual state of scientific discovery. It sometimes reaches proof of principle on an approach but has never overcome the engineering challenges to move forward. That is, until now. Welcome to Klaus Schwab’s fourth industrial revolution, where quantum computing is one of the emerging technologies that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another.

In this article, we will explore quantum computing, how it works, who is investing in the space, potential industrial and market applications, potential impacts to our legal systems, and inevitably, how it will change or lives and the future.
