Quantum computers are fundamentally different from classical at the principle of operation, and therefore provide a fast interaction with huge amounts of data. At the moment they are underdeveloped, but in the future will certainly raise machine learning algorithms to a new level and will help in the creation of molecular models for the development of new drugs. Scientists began to worry that quantum machines will also be able to easily decipher your personal information. In the end, they decided now to develop a code of ethics when using quantum technologies.
With the proposal now begin the discussion of safety rules at use of new generation computers was the company EeroQ at the conference Quantum For Business in California. Project Manager Nicolas Farina announced that the document is a starting point to a safe future.
The writing of the document, which is posted in PDF format, doing Ph. D. and consultant in business ethics Sean Holland and co-EeroQ faye Wattleton. According to them, quantum computers can be used in favor of, and harm.
Quantum computing has entered a new era, in which they can be of actual use, and it is unclear what they will be and how it will affect us.
The US government is already considering the possibility that other countries may develop quantum technologies and their use in military equipment. Philosophy Professor Patrick Lin suggested that countries will have to sign an international agreement, and this applies to even the developing regions.
Of course, quantum computers may develop to such an extent that they will be able to decrypt protected data. Most closely came to this company Zapata Computing, developed the algorithm for fast processing of huge numbers. Quantum computers are already being voiced in the world. In 2017, the market entered a D-Wave 2000Q capacity of 2000 qubit and cost 15 million dollars.
